Question i/c spray warning light

If I'm driving hard for awhile, and continue to drive hard my intercooler spray warning light starts coming on when I'm hard in the trottle.
Is anyone else experiencing this?

I think there is a bit of miscommunication going on.

Power shifting is when you keep your foot on the gas while you shift, allowing the revs to go up, effectively popping the clutch in every gear. That's bad, m'kay.

I don't think that is what he is doing, though, since he mentions flooring it 'between shifts'. I understand that as WOT while the car is in gear. I consider that almost a requirement in this car.

if you do it fast enough your revs don't go up. I have done this when racing every performance car I have had and have only had problems in one out of 6 cars. Lost third in that one but it was under Warranty. It is not how I drive around town but for max perforamcne that is the way to shift.
