    No update on the thread, but this is an idea of what I'm talking about. This is the summer coming on for us in AZ. It was actually 118* last saturday and a low of ~93*. We will see many days over 110 like this. When you are outside walking around, it feels like you are walking through a blow dryer. Cold AC is burning your face by the time it reaches your skin. When ambient is 118*, and the road itself is emitting god knows what, and my car gauge is reporting 126*, how much is a normal a2a intercooler working at this point? Not much I'd say. The IC is heatsoaked before the car turns on. The gauge on my A4 is malfunctioning and can't even display correctly because its so hot.

    Looks like it is in the mid nineties with about 30% RH right now in Phoenix. Sounds like the perfect conditions to test out an atomized water spray intercooler system. I bet you could rig something up with parts from McMaster and a windshield washer fluid reservoir with pump from another car to hold and pressurize the water.

    Jesus I'd hate that. I really hate driving my n54 in hot weather, the car doesn't feel as strong and I just never even push the boost..... I think your right, a A2A would prob not do that much in that heat

    We have much worse humidity on the east coast but anytime it's over 85 degrees I just shift at 2500 rpms and stay out of boost.

    This is where meth is priceless, i regularly BEAT on my car in the summer heat in Florida. Meth makes the performance consistent.

    We had a dust storm yesterday, which probably impacts the weather a bit. But very few people really understand the difference between the temps. 90-100 feels so hot for people. Going from 100-110 is another big step. Then going from 110-120, Jesus, its a damn oven your face feels constantly singed. Some people think that dyno'ing in 80* or 90* weather is something... 90* is cooler than our low on many days in the summer here!

    Get into the 110* range, and it feels like you're driving a 328 in 4th gear.

    Meth is no doubt very effective. But it still doesn't change one thing: the incoming air temp prior to the chargepipe. In all reality, they may compliment each other. This is just a technical post that I find intriguing, I'm a tinkerer.

    Just noticed this thread. Back in the day we did just that on my brother in laws Grand National. We mounted an extra washer bottle & pump & fabricated a set of spray bars infront of the FMIC. Used a Hobbs type switch to activate the unit at boost. Mix of water & alcohol was sprayed. Was a freebie built from odds & ends laying around the shop.
