So I had some free time this weekend and decided to tackle my intercooler spray project. I searched for intercooler sprays online, but it looked kinda pricey. I think around $140. Went to Home Depot and saw an open box misting kit. Seems like the store installed the mist kit for their garden area and had some parts left over. I took a hose with 5 misting nozzles and went to the checkout and told them I wanted to buy it. Clerk looked at it funny and then told me to just keep it. I bought a pump a while back for $10, I think it was from JCWhitney. Some hoses, relays, switches, and wires at AutoZone for $30. In the end I want to say it cost me $40, but I spent another $20 on previous tests.<p>There are 2 items I would like to use but find it fairly difficult to obtain. I would appreciate any help on where to get the following items:<br>1) Delay on break relay - A relay that stays on for a few seconds after the trigger has been removed.<br>2) WOT switch. I need a switch that will kick on the spray when the pedal is to the metal. I've seen it on very old cars but not sure where to get it now.<p>Some pics for your entertainment.<br> <IMG SRC="http://s40turbo.com/images/misc/volvoSpray1.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://s40turbo.com/images/misc/volvoSpray2.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://s40turbo.com/images/misc/volvoSpray3.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Can someone attempt or figure out how to get this into our cars.<br><A HREF="http://www.spooledmotorsports.com/sms_intercoolers.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.spooledmotorsports.....html</A><br>

Re: Intercooler spray project (V50_T5)

Not bad, let us know how well it performs when you are complete. Personally I would have spent the extra 80$ and bought the RTG kit, which I know works, looks better, was tested and is proven to work, no hassles with part locating and time R&Ding, etc....<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> on enthusiasm and dedication...<br>

Re: Intercooler spray project (volvoNB)

be curious to see how it works. my own research into sprays is that you need a really powerful pump, and multiple nozzles, otherwise the spray becomes quite ineffectualy at higher speeds.
