Towing with water injection

Is anyone towing with water injection on there diesel? I've been considering adding it to the Cummins. Add a little washer fluid and gain some HP. Alot of guys running it on TDR for performance gains (with washer fluid or mix of meth). I just want it for cooler intake charge temps with an occasional methonal boost

Thats not water injection Bro, thats just a cheap trick. Water injection is used to eliminate Detonation. Used in Ralley cars with Turbo's and such.

The lightning routes the intercooler through the AC for short bursts. An idea some the the porsche guys were thinking about a few years back.
