Re: Homemade Water inject-->MISTER for IC
A friend of mine has something called the "Intercooler Optimizer" which is
made by Spearco. He says it works well and is a cheap/easy way to lower
intake temps. It just sprays an ultra-fine spritz of water over the front
of the IC. I however don't really know how it works.... I.E. Does it come
on only when you nail the gas (i.e. 3/4 to full throttle)??? That might be
a good way to conserve some of the water.
Those of us with Audi 200's, it should be an easy mod! I have thought about
doing this. 200's have a very big washer tank underneath the passenger
front headlamp. I could convert back to the older 5KTQ set-up for the
washer bottle and use the big lower one as a reservoir for the IC mister!
Anyone done it this way???

This thread (s-cars list) reminds of another kind of related idea...
Simplest idea of all re water use, is to put a boost-actuated simple garden
mister in front of the IC for extra cooling on hot track days. Use ww fluid
reservoir for water supply.
Plus'es: simple, inexpensive, prevents HP degradation in higher ambient
temps, (reduces detonation conditions?), zero risk if it malfunctions
Con's: doesn't have as big an effect on detonation, intended really only for
track days in summer
I haven't done it yet, and will be looking for parts soon, but a mister will
be on my UrS4 before summer track events. Also plan on installing the dual
temp probe/gauge before+after the IC, to monitor the IC performance. Has
anyone already measured mister effectiveness?
Any IC_mister parts/source/etc BTDT?
QUATTROS UBER ALLES!
