Haven’t found much on the topic from recent years...maybe I answered my own question

I have looked into this as well. The banks kit seems to be pretty sweet along with snow performance. There seems to be some upside to it, but there is also downsides that can cause catastrophic failure. Reading the horror stories of hydrolocked engines due to malfunctions within the system can steer one away real quick. If i was looking to get the most out of my set up for power or towed a lot i would look into it more, but for what i use the truck for (daily driving/ street play) i couldn't justify it.

I’ve had my snow kit for 8 years now on my 2011, only issue I have is that my controller lost one of the Moffsets , and I don’t have my second solenoid anymore for the power setting. I use mine for towing a lot and it helps keep the Egt’s down nicely.
I also use a kill switch to arm and disarm my controller. I’ve never had a malfunction that caused a hydro lock condition. There’s a few guys here that still use WM , mostly for towing. You wanna go fast, add fuel a little timing and some air, and don’t forget some NOZ

The Jags Pro Truck Shop dyno measured a gain of exactly 50 HP to the wheels on my truck spraying 49% methanol with the Snow Boost Cooler kit. I think they call it the Power Max now.

If the pump is run off accessory power, and the tank is below the nozzle, it should be fairly failure resistant. Double up on solenoid valves for good measure. I agree though, a hydrolocked engine is big money to fix, im not convinced that meth makes enough of a difference, excluding maybe frequent heavy towing, to justify the risk.
