    IC water spray

    Was watching some show on Speed Channel and they did a special on the Imprezza STi. They started talkin bout a Water sprayer the sprayed the intercooler with a switch from the inside "for an extra boost of power".
    Would this actually work or is this more of a gimmick thing?

    Talking it works to cool things

    Last year I posted some pic's of a sprayer for the inner cooler to bring down the temp.. It was a simple deal and the cost to make the system was less than $20 and a few hours in the garage....Rich

    yes it works... its actually doing two things to boost power... initially before entering the combustion chamber it cools the charge, second during combustion, water expands greaty when heated... especially to those temperatures, and the extra expansion of the water vapor in the combustion chamber on top of the regular combustion of the fuel and air pushes down on the piston with greater force... i.e. more power

    its a regulated amount of water.... if too much is sprayed in... yeah... it might ruin something... but this small amount acually gains power.... the small amount will expand... but if too much goes in... there wouldnt be enough energy to turn it all into vapor..... the water is also "atomized" that is... its sprayed in a fine mist.... so dont be adding water to your gas thinking its the same thing Im not sure on the amount... its not like its dumping buckets in that it will hydro-lock or anything

    Talking I made one

    Like I said before, I made and posted pic's of a sprayer. I have it on my daily driver and if you are pounding it you can really cool off the inner cooler with it. They are eazy to make and like I said, less than $20 to build.....Rich

    It does not come stock on GTPs. If your neighbor has one, it is an aftermarket add on.

    nos has a kit that sprays nitrous on the intercooler. it's pricey though, i think about 450. my friend has this on a golf 1.8t and he siad it feels like he added about 50 hp.
