How about proper way. This however is used mostly in rally.
Use water to air intercooler with water injection both inside and outside 
of the intercooler. ERL in UK has a system that will interface with most 
ECU and will allow controll of onset and duration and flow of water.
Used by Ford Motorsport in UK. It has a great pump with heat sink that 
will prevent burn down from pumping aganst boost. Dyno tuning however is 
needed to program it correctly.
