    I did a HIGHLY elaborate detailed picture-thread on my STI I/C sprayer installation:

    The 100% CORRECT, Multi-picture, Non-ghetto, STI I/C sprayer installation

    However, I figured I should add the "highlights" to my progress thread:


    1. I wanted it to function EXACTLY like the factory STI system
    2. I wanted the tank low-level indicator to work, as the WRX gauge cluster does not have the low-level indicator (amber LED)
    3. I wanted to have a “pump activation light” (green LED) for troubleshooting purposes, as well as to know when the pump has finished cycling, so I can press it again if need be. Pressing the button twice does not make it pump longer, you have to wait for it to finish cycling before you can spray again.
    4. I wanted the switch to be close to the shifter, so my left hand never has to come off the steering wheel. The factory STI system switch is located to the left of the steering wheel, and requires you to take your right hand off the shifter to hold the wheel, and then take your left hand off the wheel to activate the switch…. And then return back to your normal driving position every time you want to spray. This is a poor design in my opinion, so I thought I’d fix it.


    Here’s what the inside of the trunk looked like after I wired everything up and ziptied everything



    Trunk completed



    Interior completed
    When the level of water in the tank is low:


    While the pump is activated (stays on 2-3 seconds only while pump is pumping)



    Under the hood:



    My schematic (I'm pretty proud of this):

    1. Orange wire w/ white stripe – goes from foglight harness to switch
    2. Violet wire – goes from foglight harness to switch
    3. Yellow wire with red stripe – goes from above the fuse box, to switch. Must be spliced and go to timer/relay as well. Must have fuse prior to relay (use 12 ga wire)
    4. Black wire (ground) goes from under dashboard (any suitable ground wire) to the neg wires on both LED indicator lights
    5. Red wire – goes from foglight harness to low-level indicator
    6. Amber wire – goes from low-level indicator to amber LED
    7. Turquoise wire – trigger wire goes from switch to timer/relay
    8. Green wire – goes to both pump, as well as green LED
    9. Ground
    10. Ground (I grounded 9+10 together into the factory taillight harness)

    ***** Wires #3, #8, and #9 should be heavier gauge wire (12-16).... I used 24 gauge for everything else.

    This is my biggest gripe...given that, I almost forget that I even had the sprayer in my STI. I imagine relocating wouldn't be difficult, given that I have a fairly good knowledge of electronics and switches.

    Very clean install and great write up, as is everything you do!

    Although I'm flattered, I disagree.

    With that, if I did it for a living, I wouldn't enjoy it anymore.

    Thank you though.

    Video coming tonight or tomorrow...... new BBK rotors arriving Wednesday.

    your a life saver im still trying to figure out what is the best way to hook up my STI intercooler spray tank. My car is identical to yours i was going to buy a spray kit tank online, then i saw your post. I have the switch, the pump, and the hoses and the nipples as well too. I dont know what else I need, i see ebay has some type of timer too for the I/C, Im not the best in wiring i dont know what is the best way to go

    So I finally located some 13" (330mm) Rotora BBK rotors at a good price from a gentleman on NASIOC. Thank God they are only slotted, and not drilled/slotted. I knew I fried them the last time I went to the track.... I wore the pads down to the bare metal..... and I can't even imagine what it did to the rotors from that point on. I've been daily driving on them.... slow speeds they felt ok...... on the highway though.... I could hear and feel them grinding.

    You know.... I kinda always assumed that the reason everyone advises against drilled rotors..... is because they buy cheap eBay rotors. "Good, high $$$ rotors" wouldn't do that, right?

    Well, Rotoras are some of the best in the business, and I gotta tell ya..... I'll never buy another set of drilled rotors again. I guess I can't complain, they came used with the BBK when I bought it.... but DAYUM.

    The old ones. The pictures do not tell the true story. These things are grooved so bad... if you run your fingernail across the rotor surface, it feels like a washboard:



    Check this out.... not just the "big" crack from the outboard hole.... but even the INBOARD holes are cracking if you look:


    So..... the pretty new ones arrived this morning:


    Installed:

    Holy hell! They look worn to say the least. I've always been on the side of "do not use drilled" rotors if you are a consistent track runner, simply because of the heating of them, unless they are cast instead of drilled (like Porsche Rotors from what I understand).

    I'm personally a fan of DBA rotors...

    ^^^ Unfortunately... with STI brembos there are options.... with a Rotora BBK.... I have to use Rotoras.

    Nevertheless, I'm keeping a spare set of pads in the trunk from now on.

    you were not kidding when you told me your rotors were shot. happy you like the new ones, drilled and slotted are only good to me if its a strick track car and on top of that you can get a sponser. im subscribing to follow a great car.

    why didn't you do the brembos? there's only a 4mm difference between the two... and the pad/rotor options for the brembos are much better

    I traded all 4 of my brakes for a Rotora BBK + $200. It was available.. I needed bigger brakes.... it all just kinda fell into place.

    Then I just ended up buying STI brembos + DBA rotors for the rear of the car, and had everything powdercoated to match.

    Total cost out of my pocket was $795 for EVERYTHING (BBK on all 4 corners), which would cost me nearly 4 grand if I were to buy it all outright. I Can't complain I suppose... but Rotora has proven themselves "difficult" to work with... that's the downside.
