Default Windshield washer sprayer Intercooler sprayer

04 WRX with Sti turbo, sti intercooler, Catless up pipe, catless down pipe, stock exhaust for now (trying to stay low key), 255 fuel pump. Running 8 psi till i can afford to get injectors and a V2 cobb access port.

Edit since everyone is so worried
I have a ****ing tune

I was thinking about how i really dont need my my passenger side sprayer so i wanted to take hose off and put a new sprayer and connect it to the sti air splittler and making it a intercooler sprayer what is your guys opinion on doin this? Any suggestions?

my issue would be using it would also spray the right one which i dont want so it would kind of be a losing both of them. Which i dont think would be a problem since i never use them

just get a water meth kit and be done with it i didn't think the intercooler sprayer helped any where as the water meth cools the air charge more efficiently

edit: and get that tune ASAP so you dont blow that thing up

You can do what the previous owner of my car did and swap the wagon windshield washer bottle and control stick (whatever that thing is called attached to the steering column to control the windshield wipers ). The wagon has an extra pump for the rear window, so you can use that for an intercooler sprayer.

It is my understanding the intercooler sprayer merely helps intercooler recover from heat soak faster. It will not make the intercooler provide colder air.

The sedan and the wagon use the same sprayer tank, the wagon just has an extra pump for the rear window. If you have the sedan, you can just get another pump and grommet. Drill the appropriate sized hole in the second unused boss on the tank, install pump and wire it to a switch (or what ever activation system you want to use) and voila waterspray. If I remember correctly around $30. HTH

its not worth your time to spray liquid on the intercooler, it won't do much if anything for cooling purposes. just focus on getting the injectors in there for now. if you want to add meth/water injection later just do that but the effort to do what you want is too much for a gain of practically nothing.

oh yeah, get a tune!!

Hey, You have alot of other things to think about before adding water to your intercooler.

First off you are running a STi turbo on stock injectors or a WRX with stock exhaust you need a tune man.

then I would look at some NOS I think you will need two of the big ones. but you need them by tonight so hurry (unless you car went above 140MPH on its own then you only need one) adding a playstation or loud stereo makes it have more "street apeal" so people think its faster. you will also need a NOS fogger system, stand alone fuel management (not a bad way to spend $10k)
and you need a laptop in the passenger seat so you can engage stage 2. just be careful of danger to manifold I suggest not to press both NOS buttons at the same time. you passenger floorboard might fly off. But if it does fly off just try to pick up Vin Diesel and it should be magicly replaced. Just be very careful when trying to hit 140MPH your car might spin without notice when you reach those speeds and your reverse lights might come on for no reason. Please be careful.


LOL that was fun. anyway we can race once my clutch is done. I wanna see what your car can do on 8Lbs. ill bring a honda so I dont beat you to bad.

(oh and we are so drinking next weekend- Not topic related just to lazy to myspace)

Why wouldn't it be worth the effort? Cooler IAT are ALWAYS better. That's a FACT. Spraying water onto my stock IC improved it's efficiency by 13%, It went from 59% to 72% Or in other words IAT into throttle went from 136*F down to 117*F on a pedal to metal run from 0 to 130 MPH on a 77*F ambient day.

If you follow this procedure you have to make sure not to hit your NOS button too soon, or you will lose your pink

Not worth the effort? takes about 20 minutes to move and fasten a nozzle. The effectiveness of an IC is based on the rate it can transfer heat to the atmosphere from the compressed air passing through it. Metal---> fluid heat transfer is significantly faster than Metal--->air. Spray nozzles have been used to increase IC efficiency for a long long time. Do your homework to avoid further posting of false information.

I am interested in your next steps. I have heard of the wagon tank swap for our year WRX and getting the STI switch for the interior from a local guy here. Really cheap at a "pull your part" yard for the tank.

Ignore some of the noise here.

exactly! there's a few vendors and a few members that have put together some kits that include all parts, wires and cool switch. i just added one last month, it was a breeze to install and works great. just make sure to add distilled water and not tap. pm me if you'd like i'll put you in touch with a friend who has a kit.
