Since I know very little about the IC, I still venture this idea to the crowd:
If water does help cool the air through the IC, can an idea like this work?

Is it possible to take water (by-product of combustion) from the exhaust
system and "wick" it or drain it from the exhaust system through tubing or
piping to the front of the IC so that water would continuously "mist" (from
ram air passing a dripping tube or pipe) over the IC cooling fins to lower
the air temperature?
