Intercooler water spray

Recommended Posts

About 10 years ago there was quite a few people looking at spraying water onto the intercooler to drop the temperature. But there has not been anything I can find in the last 5 or more years. I have tried the search here "intercooler water spray" you get over 800 pages, anything containing the word "intercooler" comes up. I am in Tennant Creek NT, from November to April, it goes over 40c every day, the road surface temp, is over 65c. I am looking to reduce the temp just before I hit the accelerator, its a small town, so once is all you get. I am also installing a PW stage one intercooler as soon as I can get to Adelaide and get Jeturbo  to tune her. Does anyone still run water sprays on their intercoolers?

I looked into this for my RTV but decided against it in favour of spraying water directly into the piping after the intercooler. Have a read up on water injection of you're interested, by the time your done messing with a set up to spray your cooler you might be better off doing injection. No need to plan ahead and get your cooler temp down before nailing it, water injection set up on a boost switch is on demand and pretty much set and forget.

Thanks for the link. The only reason I was looking for more recent threads is, most things that worked are still popular.
