I wonder how tough it would be to get the amount of water/meth mixture going to each cylinder evenly balanced out

Good question, for me on my E46 M3 it was more about cooling the intake charge, rather than in cylinder cooling. The Water/Meth mixture I was using had a red dye in it, "Boost Juice" used by Snow Performance, I could tell from the reddish residue on the TB's that I was getting even distribution to all cylinders, but again it was more about adding additional cooling to the intake charge, as I was running 10.5 - 11psi.

that is some good info.

I see some people doing a 80meth 20water.

I also see people going 50/50

I guess if the meth is very corrosive then 50/50 would be pretty good its gets really hot in Taiwan in the summers.

I think G-pwr has a really good cooling set up already but I think the cooler the better on the FI M3s.

so which brand? SNOW? Labonate?

50/50 is good Bro, I've only had experience with Snow Performance, they make a great/uncomplicated/effective/consistent - setup that's not that expensive either. Aqua Mist is another choice as PT pointed out.
