Here is a Big one I just wrapped up today

Inter Cooler Water Misting Setup

I have had these parts waiting to get installed for months...finally got around to it. This is not a normal inter cooler spray set-up its actual a misting rig like you see at large amusement parks and on hot days at sporting events for the athletes. It creates a super fine mist almost like fog.

Parts:
- 1/4" black push lock hose ....20-25ft
- miscellaneous 1/4" push lock fittings
- 2 misting tips off ebay, included where the push lock T-fittings
- 120psi 120v espresso machine pump of ebay
- 300watt power inverter....I think it hat was off Amazon
- 12v adjustable psi activated switch, included was 20ft wire and the green LED
- Motor Boat 3gal Gas Tank from Walmart
- 1 40amp relay and other miscellaneous electrical bits
- miscellaneous hardware



Started by ripping the rear trunk panels out of the wagon to see what and were things could go and I figures the pump and power inverter would fit just right in the long storage flap area. After bending up two brackets and a quick run for some small/long bolt hardware they were mounted.





I drilled a hole for a push lock pass through fitting just above the passenger side bulk harness in the fire wall.



I ran the misting tips through the holes in the Process West TMIC splitter. The tips require near 100psi for them to work properly. That is the reason why I have used the espresso machine pump, it makes near 120psi in about 2-3 seconds of start up. With the tips in the two outer holes it gives 100% coverage of the core. The feed hoses run through the side gaskets. It gives it a nice clean look and keeps the hoses up and out of the way with out all kinds of zip ties.





Ran all the power wires and feed hose back to the trunk and connected all the appropriate bits. Dropped in the gas tank and bungee it in place till I get a chance to fab up a bracket to mount on the spare tire mounting point. I had wracked my brain trying to find/figure out what to use for a tank. Any thing custom was going to be far too much and there are only 1-2 company's that make spare tire well tanks and they are near $500. So as usual in this kind of predicament I to a trip to Walmart thinking to maybe find a oil pan and figure a way to seal up the pour spout. I usauly walk the home, sporting goods, and auto isles just looking around for an idea. Low and behold the boat gas tank! It was perfect, top feed outlet was 1/4npt it has an internal filter on the end of the inner hose and was low profile. This would also make a killer METH tank.



Lastly I pulled the gauge cluster trim and mounted the LED, tapped into the relay wires for power and was basically done......about 6 hours all in all. Having the LED dead center is nice for a few reasons. It helps when I was adjusting the psi switch's activation, I didnt have to watch the LED just the boost gauge.....its set for 0-1psi Another nice this about the LED is it will help me stay out of boost when Im driving and actually trying to save some gas.

IMO it should be, since the water partials are smaller so evaporation will be faster, so it will cool better. Also the mist is soo fine its is like 95% evaporated by the time it gets to the bottom of the core, so there is no water all over the place like a normal spray system.

Ill have numbers in a week or so, I just ordered 2 digital readouts and some thermocouples for intake and after inter cooler temps.

the one I use, although there are cheaper ones available if you look around amazon. I just know for a fact this one works.

Amazon.com: Soliport ELM 327 Bluetooth OBDII OBD2 Diagnostic Scanner: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Soliport ELM 327 Bluetooth OBDII OBD2 Diagnostic Scanner: Automotive

I said in my video that I pay 9 bucks... but, I lied. It was 18. there is a 9 dollar one and I decided to opt for the one I knew worked 100%

Your answer is further along in that thread ; To save you time it's a custom job, likely a Home Depot special. Current owner tracked down previous owner whom confirmed.

Not sure exactly how unique this is but i got tired of my hatch area being too dark. i had previously added a strip of LED's to rear hatch roof area, but with the cargo cover in the car it still blocked the rear area.

i added 3 more LED's now, 1 in the hatch and 2 on the inner corners, the lighting is awesome.

Yup:










Although it looks like it, I don't have fog overlays, I actually hate the yellow look of the overlays...

Yup, back to reflector lenses. Although I am pretty sure the Canadian versions have HID bulbs in the reflector housings from the factory, no projectors for this generation.

There's a guy on here that has done a retrofit already, and I plan to do one after some spare housings come down in price though.

Not too unique since quite a few people seem to be doing this mod, but here is my take on rear cargo lighting.

The bulbs I used are; 12 led 7440 bulbs.


Took them apart. The wires with the resistors are the power wires.


Then pulled down the rear trim piece and drilled pilot holes in two circles that were there from casting.


Took a 1/2" drillbit and made the hole bigger. Then used a dremel to get the final fit for the leds


Everything wired, soldered, and taped up.
Also hot glued the leds in place.


The final product:




It's nice and bright and looks almost factory. It was fairly easy to do, and only took about 45 minutes.
