Default Where to find parts for a DIY IC/Radiator sprayer?

This is definitely of the the springtime things I want to add to the car for the up and coming autoX season. So I have already sourced the washer pump from Pep Boys. But I'm wondering where else you can go to get one. Also, where can you find some nice high quality silicone hoses and matching T junctions? The setup I am looking for is basically one hose out of the pump leading into two hoses(one going to the hood scoop for IC, the other leading to the front grill for radiator spraying). Each of those two hoses will have to be split for one on each side of the IC and radiator. So my question is basically, where can you get some serious hoses, a decent enough pump(one that will not break if run dry and pumps enough), and decent spray nozzles? Also, what other parts(brackets and fastening pieces) do I need? If you didnt guess already, I'm also looking to keep it relatively cheap(<75$, but more realistically < 125$). Any solutions?

I suggest going to autozone or where ever you shop. get a power window washer kit, (they are relatively cheap compared to real spray kits), rout some tubing, and then use misters that you can get at ACE hardware or such places.

I'm planing on doing just this in the next few weeks.

And you'll also need a switch. They sell subaru i/c spray switches for liek $40 online, or you can just get a standard switch from autozone...

what diameter tubing would you recommend? I guess it depends on the sprayer misters doesn't it?

I hope you realize that what you're planning to do is illegal in ANY class in the SCCA for Auto-x.

There can be no capability to spray any liquid for a performance advantage while on course.

Just an FYI. That and the fact of the rules, if it doesn't say you can, then you can't. You cannot add this system to your car and be legal because there's no allowance for it in the rules.

So even having the hoses and pump there is illegal in all classes of autoX? What about Toyota GT4s, they have it built in, but unusable, stock!

the way i understand the rules, and i may be wrong, but the rules say you cant use a spray system on the track. it says nothing about what you do in the grid. there are many people that use hand sprayers and ice bags on their I/Cs and such while on the grid.
so if you have a spray system installed that can be used while on the track someone might flag you (as if you had time to hold that button while driving like a mad man).

in MHO, if your only doing local scca stuff, and you don't try to hide it, and you don't use it while driving (ie only in the grid), people probably wont mind. but if you plan on doing any regional/national events, where competition is tight and competitors are visouse, you wont get away with even having it installed.

check with you local officials. tell them what you know about the rules, and see what they say. honesty is always the best policy.

now if your a drag strip person. install away...

The sprayers are key. You want the finest mist possible. With that being said, you might not find the right sprayers at your local hardware or autoparts store. You may have to shop online. Also a search about 1yr back should net part numbers for someone that made it with "ideal" sprayers.

As for hose, any hose will do. I get Vaccum hose for like $.09/ft. but you can also get fancy colored silicone from hosetechniques.com

Good luck and let us know how it goes... I may want to do this too!

Correct. You cannot add something that will give a performance advantage on the track. Even if you 'say' you're going to use it only in grid, there's advantages to having it on the auto-x course.... if the rules don't say you can add this system, then you cannot.

Like you said yourself... the GT4 system in the states is unoperable.

Yes, it is illegal in all classes UNLESS IT CAME STOCK and in working order.

Like the STi for instance... it will be legal, but you cannot update backdate it to the W R X.

I hate being the bearer of bad news.... but the idea is they don't want ANY fluids to be dripping from your car anywhere near the course.... what's the best place to spray your IC? At the line before you take off... not fair if you leave water for the person's tires behind you.

It's cool to have for the pits... but you can just buy a water sprayer at Home deopt and do things like everyone else who has a W R X.
