You're honestly better off with wmi and can just keep it on a 93 file for cooling and added safety

The K04 can spike to above 23-24psi for a short period of time for a torque spike but it won't hold that higher pressure for long.

A sweet spot for the K04 is in the 23-24psi range. You can go for that torque spike but I personally prefer a flatter torque curve.

Also WMI helps in a few ways:

1. Adds fueling
2. Cools mixture chemically resulting in lower EGTs.
3. Cleans valves and manifold (to a degree)
4. Increases octane via the added fueling

I recommend WMI in DIT cars for these reasons and the downside is another system to maintain. I run a 50/50 mixture using the windshield washer bottle (yes it also washes the windshield) which simplifies things a bit.

I was looking into Snow Performance at one point but not sure on their reliability?

Yea I'm not sure, I need to do some more research on what to do. I'm not sure if I want a separate tank or go with the factory washer bottle like Alex was saying. Atleast with the factory washer bottle you'll get an alert on the dash when it's low lol.

Not sure if its on US cars but it tells you when its about to empty, so there's\no excuse to get into boost without any meth and blow up

Aquamist is the top of the line kit. Snow, devils own are both good kits for the money, but aquamist for the same kit will definitely run you quite a bit more money
