[s-cars] Water injection.

Charlie etc.,

Not every car with the headlight washers (every UrS-car, I guess) has
the larger watertank.  My 93 S4 (CA market) has a smaller 4.2 or so
liter tank while my S6 (OR market) has the more commonly seen
6-something liter tank.  I am confident that they are both factory
originals and not replacements as I have all records pertaining to the
cars including where the original owner paid the service tech to change
the clock to daylight saving time :-)

Wait a minute.  The intensive washer fluid reservoir is much smaller
than the regular reservoir.  The "intensive" fluid used by Audi is
straight undiluted washer concentrate; when spraying that for those
hard-to-remove bugs you don't need as much.  But, cars with this
intensive system will have two reservoirs.

Now, Cars that have headlight washers have a much larger washer fluid
reservoirs.  Find one of those tanks, and skip the headlight washing.

Regarding the Autospeed / Labtronics water spray control.  It is
a microprocesser controlled switch to figure when to close a relay
circuit for water spraying.  You can use it for either spraying
the outside of the intercooler or for spraying into the intake system
as you are describing.
