Default WRX sedan with wagon stalk

Findings: I ordered the wiper stalk for the wagon. It plugs right in. I ordered the rear washer fluid pump for the wagon. It plugs right in to the wiring. The switch makes the pump work. The parts were not expensive. Now all I need is a rubber grommet thingy to mount the pump to the plastic tank.

I hope this helps anybody else trying to make a DIY intercooler spray.

I have a wagon, but never use the rear wiper. I thought of using the second pump for a intercooler spray kit, but never took the time to figure it out....

I guess the only thing I have to figure out is a switch of some sort, any suggestions?

If you never use the rear wiper fluid spray, why not unplug the tubing and route new tubing to some intercooler sprayers? You could always plug it back in for wintertime.

That's my plan for this coming spring. Few bucks for some extra hose and a couple of t's. Lucky for me somebody had bought some sprayers at Home Depot and wasn't too impressed so he bought the STi sprayers, I'm not as particular so I'm hoping they'll work for me.

Default grommets

I just ordered 2 grommets at $5.43 each. The grommet is part number SU686223030. I already have the STI nozzles, so now all I need is some tubing. I might route the tubing to the downpipe so I have a smokescreen on demand. My name is Doo, Scooby Doo. Shaken, not stirred please.

let me get this straight...

you want to hold the washer spray on the stalk to hose down your intercooler while you go down the 1/4mi?

unless you have an auto, that's not an easy task

Would I just use the wash button on the end off the wiper switch to turn on the spray??

I'de want a seperate switch, something that would stay on for 15-30 seconds at a time would be nice...any ideas

you would need some serious wiring, of course it would be nice, but probably need timer circuit board or solenoid?

i bought a few momentary switches, just going to use it to spray for a few seconds when i am traffic or in line for drag, to minimize the heat soak effect.

if you are on the strip, mind as well go buy some dry ice and put it on top of the tmic.

I got mine online a couple of months ago...can't remember who. They were like 20 buck...can't remember. They spray a nice half moon pattern, but they need rectangular holes to mount properly. All of my drill bits make round holes. DAMMIT! Anybody got a square drill bit?

Square drill bit would be nice...

I have the sprayers coming and was planning to cut the holes by drilling 4 very small holes around the perimeter of the square, then drill a correct size bit through the center of the square. Should make the square close enough to be correct, and you can always trim as needed.

I was thinking about trying to mount them using hose clamps and some small tabs. I'd like to mount them to the aluminum tubes that go in front of the intercooler, so they are attacted to the engine, not the hood.

I'm part way done. I drilled out the new hole today. I used a 13/16 in. wood boring drill bit. I went through three hardware store clerks trying to get the right size. The third dude got a caliper out of the package to get it right. I think the hole is 20-22mm or something, but 13/16ths is just a tad smaller, so it should be a tighter leak-free fit (I hope). Trivia: a nickel squeezes into the hole.

Good luck trying to use a hand drill. I used a drill press. The stupid jug doesn't lay flat very well. I would recommend ordering a pre-drilled wagon tank along with the other parts (if they are cheap).

I also recommend answering the hardware store guy's question "Can I help you find something?" with "Yes, I need a 21mm wood boring drill bit". It's cheap entertainment.

The pumps are simple to mount. You only need a hole and a grommet. If you wanted to tap the coolant overflow tank for a smokescreen mod, then all you would have to do is drill a hole near the bottom and wire it up to a switch...a switch labelled "smoke screen"

It seems after looking at some old import cars at the junkyard that most wiper motors are about the same. They are about $3.50 at the junkyard. The connectors are about universal.

I'm looking into mounting a wiper fluid tank in the trunk. My spare tire and jack have left a bunch of empty space. I am also adding a shower for the Trunkmonkey. STINKY MONKEY!

I found all of the connectors to make an "extension cord" digging behind the dashboards of old import cars. At the junkyard I can look for whatever connectors I need...in whatever color I want. The ones that are buried in the dash are like brand new. They are clean, plentiful, and almost free! I will look for a connector that matches my clock nextime.
