Actually, spraying a mixture of water and methanol directly into the intake is a popular performance mod for diesels. Boosts hp and lowers egts..no joke. Most use windshield washer fluid.

96 reports to the NHSTB or what ever it is. I'm sure there are many more reported to dealers. A quick google search reveals it is a known problem to many.

Very true. Never done, but have heard of it.

Yea, 96 "reported" cases is no big deal....unless you're one of the 96 and it happened at the worst possible situation!

I had the issue on my 2012. They replaced the intercooler with a newer design and flashed the computer with a new program. That was in February and I haven't had any issues since (fingers crossed). During that time I haven't driven it any different than before and towed also.

most intercooler temps are around the 350 degree after compression, I had a snow water meth system installed but sold it because I did not use it enough, but wish I would of kept it, it lowered my EGT about 200 degrees and the intercooler temps around 150 (shot before the cooler) it had 3 stages, I never did run meth in it just water. first shot at 6psi, second at 12, and all 3 nozzles on at 18psi
