Cry02 intercooler spray kit (CO2/N20)
Got the kit installed and working great.
There are some goods and bads about this kit:
BAD: hard to find a place that's open on the weekends that
sell c02. Paintball places can not refill it because the fitting
size is completely different. only leaves welding places, fire
extinguisher places...but these places are usually closed on
GOOD: you can use nitrous instead of co2 (like me) which are
readily available locally at larger speed shops. sure its like
$1.50 more per lbs, but who cares, the convenience factor
is far greater.
The kits comes with a 5lbs cylinder, but im using a 10lbs
cylinder i bought as a spare for my other car.
(if anyone wants my 5lb bottle, please check out the private
for sale column; its FS never been filled, brand new).

The kit itself is very easy to install. if you've installed a nitrous
kit before (non-zex type), it's almost the same procedure
except the nozzle into the intake part...just plug the solenoid
into the intercooler spray ring and that's it.
Use the DEI Cry02's larger spray ring...it fits perfectly onto
the factory USDM wrx intercooler.
Since im using the factory uppipe i am not using the micro
switch on the throttle linkage to turn constantly on at wot.
My setup is more or less like a purge kit...just momentary
spray button for the spray. You can probably fabricate this
entire kit from spare nitrous parts you may have + the spray
Cry02 Kit: $289
Spray Ring (large) $79
Bought at One6 in Arlington Hts, IL
94F 69RH.... hot and humid. at these temps, intercooler
heatsoak is very noticable at long traffic stops.
i spray about 3-4 seconds before the light turns green
which is enough to snow onto the intercooler completely.
Result: absolutely no sign of heatsoak (duh...)
now, i run wot in 2nd or 3rd gear and turn on
the spray 5-6sec continuously. boost guage doesn't seem
to indicate increase in boost pressure while the spray is on,
but you can definitely feel the better efficiency of the
intercooler. It feels like its running in 28F weather.
Even after the run with the continous spraying the
snow turns into condensation and continues to cool the intercooler as if there was a water spray kit. it lasts a long
time. basically unless you are racing, the factory intercooler
seems to work fine as long as you keep moving and dont'
boost over 16-17psi.
I think its a kit worthwhile to get especially for people
in hot/humid weather. considering the simplicity of the kit,
i would just buy spare parts and fabricate the
entire kit next time around.
