    read up on these kits, anyone have one fitted?

    are they worth it?

    what gains should i get from a e46 320cd running about 180-190bhp with a digital tuning box.

    any extra info would be great!

    power gains arent massive using the recommended 50/50 mix, its used more as a safety feature which gives a little bit more power, however if your diesel is running rich (smokes on hard acceleration) the methanol will help burn up this smoke, which is unburnt fuel, and produce more power the water is a cooling aid to reduce mainly egt's on a diesel

    Used to mostly be used on turbo petrol cars to cool the charge so you could run more boost
