Intercooler - Mist Kit

I am committed to fitting a mist kit now to my set-up but thought i'd get peoples opinions on wheather they think it's worth the effort or if it will make a difference.

I am running 15psi boost and have a good sized opening for the intercooler but thought the mist might help under harder driving conditions.

4 litre tank running through 2 x 90 degree brass mist nozzels lasts for approx 8min if left on.

With as cople of ice blocks in the water tank how many degrees do you believe it will lower temp by (on say a 25 degree day) and will there be any noticable difference in power.

Re: Intercooler - Mist Kit

Its the evaperation that cools too but yes even better if cold.It works, we did make more power doing just that on dyno.Spraying water on i/c while tuneing etc.Ambiant temp was 40*+...

Re: Intercooler - Mist Kit

Have to be a good thing I reckon.
Dont reckon there would be a noticable diffrence with cooler water because the I/C will dissapate it's heat through evaporation, you aren't chilling it like a stubby. Saying that it would also be detrimental to spray too much water on the I/C and saturate it, the quicker you can get the water to evaporate the more heat it will be drawing out, but as long as it's a mist it'll be fine I spose. Deffinately worth the effort, anything that makes you go faster always is!

Re: Intercooler - Mist Kit

Having sed that, make sure the water droplets are as small as possible... that way they will absorb more heat faster. should be a good jigger! let us know how u go!

Re: Intercooler - Mist Kit

The CRY02 products look pretty promising....Guess the C02 tank has to be mounted in the boot like the case for NOS...but very interesting concept. Thanks for the headsup!

Re: Intercooler - Mist Kit

Well i set the kit up and it worked ok lowering the intake temp approx 6-8 degrees under acceleration.

However i was using garden nozzels and thought going for proper ones from CAPA would be much better.

Gues what?

They charged me $38 for 2 more garden nozzels. Oh well, i guess im stuck with them now.

Re: Intercooler - Mist Kit

The cooler the better mate, have seen some mist kits on subies & skylines, apparently its best to have the sprays atleast 50mm away from the intercooler core to get more surface area exposed to the mist
