    water cooling intercooler??

    just wonderin if anyone has done a mod that sprays water onto the cooler to help reduce the temperature??

    the reason i ask, my mate has a Impreza Type RA and it had a water spray system on the standard top mount....

    is it possible?

    Yeah the evo has this also, only way i can think is, dewiper you rear and re root you rear wiper water feed from the bottle to the front. Then when you put your rear water squirter on (on the stalk) it will spray on the front mount.

    Better off spraying it with CO2 as its quite cheap and cools really well.

    You cant use the water spray on the 1/4 mile either as it leaves a puddle.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Thumbs Up

    it was just an idea i had, might have a look into getting a framesystem made up so there are multiple points round the intercooler.....

    only problem with using the rear wiper hosing is it has to be sprayed with the same as the front screen, which means it wouldnt be possible to use a 50/50% water/methanol mix.....

    even a 5% drop in intake temp would be sufficient IMO......

    Yep, but it wouldn't spend much time doing it as it makes little or no difference, I needed to find a use for the water injection system as using it for it's orginal purpose was detrimental to the car's performance.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
