I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 with the 5.7 liter HEMI, and i was wondering if water-methanol injection would do anything for me??

I don't see how it would do much unless you are FI. But I suppose if you run 50% Meth with a custom tune you could take some advantage maybe.

i have a diablo sport predator programmer in it..but more less it wouldn't be worth spending the 300 bucks on the water-meth system?

What other mods do you have? Are you using canned programs on your diablo or do you have a custom tuner or CMR or something?

W/M with a stock n/a engine won't do much of anything at all. The water helps with cooling the intake charge, so does the methanol as well as increasing the octane rating which a stock Hemi really doesn't need. Being n/a, the w/m will displace some of your air and fuel which could actually hurt your performance where on a boosted application, it's being forced in until the valve slams shut. There is a positive side to adding a w/m kit to your stock n/a engine....I've heard of guy's installing one of those kits and besides adding w/m, they also added a couple oz of nitro methane to the mix and claimed they picked up another 30-40 hp according to their time slips.

would nitro methane be safe?
LOL as with everything only in moderation.

Nitromethane is wicked stuff. If track officials smell it they will kick you out.

I would use water/meth more to help with bringing down EGT's in a turbo setup (the water part) and so you could run more timing (the meth part). Id save the money on the water/meth, for the $300+ it would cost you to get a complete setup you could pick up a used nitrous setup if you don't already have it
