I want to share with everyone my DIY intercooler sprayer.  I went to find a windshield fluid reservoir from a junkyard but couldn't find anything that I liked.

Then I ran into this: http://www.midwestbusparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=16_319&products_id=2046

My Streetsmart boost controller controls a relay that powers the built in pump and activates at certain boost pressure or RPM.

I made a bracket from cutting up a straight price of aluminum from the Home Depot and bolted it to the factory battery tray and a factory hole in the fender.The size is awesome and it fits perfectly using factory mounting holes.

I have two patio mister nozzles each attached to the front license plate mounting tabs. With my setup, if I put them higher than this, the water sprayed all over the hood/engine leaving spots every where.  This initially created a syphon when first kicked on as well but I fixed that with a simple anti syphon/drip valve designed for backyard misters.  Theses where hard to find ironically and only found them on Alibaba Express and I had to buy a 50 pack for $10 but only needed one. 

Windshield washer fluid has worked the best when it comes to minimizing water spots under the hood. Alcohol would be better but washer fluid is cheap.

  I haven't measured the benefits yet but when I do I'll post it, I can't imagine it's not effective. It drains quickly if I set the boost controller to activate it at lower psi, slower if set to higher pressures. Same would go for RPM triggering. 

This same system can work with a basic switch versus using an electronic controller if so desired.
