CAC Squirters?

I know it was on a gasser (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo) but it had washer nozzles mounted behind the lower grille that spray washer fluid on the intercooler. I traced the lines back to a secondary pump in the washer tank. I don't know what activated the pump. I'm guessing the computer did, but I didn't see any temp senders in the CAC, but it could have been in the IC pipe somewhere. My question is would there be enough benefit to attempt something like this on an IC as large as ours? And has anyone attempted it, with any measurable results? I'm new to turbo power but I haven't seen anything like this.

Re: CAC Squirters?

ive seen that a few times on the ricers. it just sprays fluid and thats about it. normally they just activate it by using the regular thing for spraying your windshield

Re: CAC Squirters?

the subie wrx had them more because the top mounts did not have the benefit of the fan etc..
you can do it but ...water injection in the motor is more efficient in our trucks. just don't add too much meth.

cspid is a good one to talk water to.

Re: CAC Squirters?

I have thought about adding some kind of exterior spray, but the volume of water required would be huge to make a differance, its bad enough to carry 8 gallons for the main water injection...

Might be good on the track or pulling???

Seems to be more for short bursts, but I have to wonder how well this would work for towing. Water injection is not much more and is proven.

Re: CAC Squirters?

I think at the track you would be promptly shown the exit after you intentionally sprayed liquid all over the place.

Re: CAC Squirters?

if it is a mist i would think that once it hit the IC it would vaporize, doing its job, leaving nothing to drip on the track.

the system is activated by a switch. they discontinued that system in later models.
they had two pumps on the washer bottle. it is much, much more effective as others have said, to just inject water into the intake charge.

yep, any kind of fluid leaking off of your vehicle will get you tossed quick. that is why they actually use nitrous sprayed right out of the bottle at the track to cool the inner cooler off in between runs. what a waste of nitrous!

it is not a mist, its a stream, just like your windshield washers. it will drip off.

Re: CAC Squirters?

i think some of the sled pullers do that, seems as though it would work good. or maybe a compressed gas like nos or co2.
