    Drag IAT supression

    Hey all

    Looking to reduce intake temperatures without risking the engine.

    At the drags my temps are at 100f and up to 120f before starting.
    The ambient temps around 80f-90f each day and night.
    Intercooler is ADE 1000hp
    RB evos
    e40 fuel
    I've got a meth Bung in the cold side of the intercooler and one in the BMS charge pipe

    I want get a Devils own or Aem kit and spray only water through smallest nozzle or nozzles to keep the temps down 10-20f at the drags.

    I was thinking of running water only in a cm5 at the cold side intercooler.
    Or what size would I need to reduce IAT slightly? Would I need to add meth at all to help cooling at all?

    +1 On this. A2W intercooler and icebox is the best solution for a drag purposed car.

    I'm looking to slightly drop temperature without putting meth in.

    Has anyone got results from just spraying water in the cold side plumbing?

    Just spraying water on plumbing will have an impact but it's more of a band-aid solution rather than a real cooling upgrade. People used to spray nitrous and intercoolers for example.

    Water/meth injection is probably your best bet.

    So you're already running water/meth in the charge pipe and want to leave that part unchanged and separate?

    Spraying a mist over the intercooler from the outside is also meant to help heaps.

    lol!

    I saw 184* just cruising in some traffic here in AZ once... I was afraid to get on it but I'm sure those charge temps would have been over 200 if I had. It was 116* here today. Not my favorite time of the year.

    I'm not running any cooling set up at the moment.

    I'm looking at getting a meth kit and putting one small nozzle in the cold side of the intercooler.
    One cm5 with water only or two cm3 unless that's too small to achieve iat improvement.

    The aim is to keep the intake temps around 100f so timing stays on target.

    It normally starts pulling if it's 120f and doesn't pull real well between gears when it's 120f area.
    if I can keep the temps down even 5-10f it will make it more reliable power. At the moment it's inconsistent due to the heat.

    I'd go a nozzle on cold side of IC and one in the bumper spraying the front face of the IC.

    I'd imagine the intercooler works best when there is the largest temperature gradient between internal and external temps possible.
    Better to spray post intercooler when the air isn't going to get any cooler than it already is and the intercooler already had it's go. Just my 2 cents.
    Best:11.79@119mph on stock turbos.
    11.75@127 on GCs.

    I suggested they at least get that $299 Phoenix intercooler we carry... OEM is not going to get it done.

    On track, you shouldn't be spraying any fluid on external parts of the car. Gases are fine. But absolutely do not spray water on the ic.

    It's a fine mist and it's quite common. We're also talking a tiny nozzle. Some WRX STis had this from factory. I've seen it on heaps of drag GTRs.

    Yes there's no problem with some external water spray apart from you'll be banned from the drag strip for leaving water on the track and the ops requirements are for the strip.

    I considered fitting a co2 or nitrous sprayer like so
