Re: interesting source for intercooler cooling setup, other stuff
Brett made three (or four?) points.
1.) J.C Witless has a kit for cheap with a tank, pump, hose, sprayer.
Lots of options here. I used an Audi Part out of a junkyard
for less than $15.00. I happened to have an extra. Not even $15.
2.) But the jets aren't to cool (they spray a fine stream).
There are lots of options for jets. I have not yet found an ideal
solution, where pressure and flow are perfectly matched. Mostly I
am looking for lower capacity spray heads that give good atomization
at modest pressures. Not so easy to find.
3.) Radio shack has temperature probes
There are a lot of temperature measurement chips available
today, such as LM35's (sic) but most of them I have seen are NOT
up to the temperatures that the turbo will put out. For that reason
I went with TC's.
4.) Question about spraying water upstream of the turbo.
The puddling is one issue, but the effect on the turbine
over time is another. I think errosion may be an issue.
Probably fine for NA cars, but turbos? Somebody talked about this
this winter or spring.
