Default How to remove the stock STi intercooler sprayer tank

Hello All,

Like the title says, I'm trying to remove the stock intercooler sprayer from an 04 STi. I removed the bolts I could see, but it still won't budge. Any clues?

cool, thanks, I figured that out today. For future reference to someone who might search for the same topic, I just unbolted the two bolts, uncliped the connections, and pull upward and outward from the back of the tank towards the front.

Can you post more pics I'm doing the same but on a WRX with an STi tank, I need to figure out where stuff goes!

Thanks!

The tank goes on the pass. side of the trunk. The switch goes next to the cruise on a WRX, then just wire and plump accordingly

If you have anyother questions, PM me, or if you need the tank, check my FS thread as I am selling a complete setup

Looks good man! Where did you buy that whole setup with the Aquamist-branded Shurflo pump? I think that would be a good cheap way to go vs. the normal Aquamist pump. I'm glad that Aquamist is pursuing that route.

I was actually considering piecing together a system by buying my own Shurflo pump, then a 1S -> 2d upgrade kit (to get Fia2 & HSV), and then the nozzles, lines, DDS3, etc seperately just to avoid the extra money on the light-weight Aquamist pump. I *DO* like the engineering that went into the Aquamist pump, but I just think it's unnecessary when using a HSV setup on a street car where an extra pound or two of weight won't even be noticed.

Let me know what you did.

Yeah, that setup looks really good. I plan on putting a system in by springtime next year, that way when it gets hot in the summer I'll be prepared. I just think it's funny that I was spec'ing out a system that would be identical to that, and then there it is. I guess it was just the next logical step.

I really like how Aquamist/Richard responds to their users. I would say that the cost of getting a well thought-out system is definitely worth it. Richard obviously isn't just cocerned with selling a system that works - safety should always be the top priority, and it is easy to see that safety is on the top of his list.
