Default Interesting intercooler sprayer

CryO2 Intercooler Water Sprayer

Anyone ever used such a thing before? I've heard of people using sprayers to mist the intercooler but never anything about venting C02 onto the fins after the water has been sprayed..
Seemed like a pretty cool idea to me.
Thoughts??

When I had my srt4 I rigged up water sprayers on the intercooler. I used windshield wiper nozzles and a wiper pump and a pressure switch. It was actually pretty badass. The s2 kit with the srt's come with a similar design and so do stock sti's.

Yeah but do they vent C02 after the water to make it even cooler?

$93 dollars for a ******* squirter? C02 or not, that just seems stupid to me. You could put together something like that yourself for like 30 bux I'll bet. Sti's come with this stock as well as many other turbo cars, and I have yet to see any real gains from it.

Yeah I have no intention of buying one, I was just curious if anyone had tried the C02 trick.

I wouldnt think the C02 would do much at 80 miles an hour anyways.
