    for those with intercooler waterspray kits

    if you mounted a water resevoir in the trunk, can ya tell me how you led the hose to the trunk? i was wholly confused when i tried to do that with mine, and i couldn't find a friggin way, so i just led the hose through the middle seat pass-through

    oh btw, what did u use for the resevoir? post pics!!! (cause right now i'm using an old milk gallon jug )

    I cheated - I have a wagon which already has two spray motors fitted. I rewired the motor to the spray controller and pulled off the rear spray hose and replaced it with the hose that goes to the spray nozzles.

    The rear motor is mounted slightly higher than the front nozzles - so it doesn't run me out of water for the windscreen.

    I rarely used the rear spray - so it was a good compromise for me!

    I'm eventually gonna rig a permanent sprayer using the washer fluid tank. Mine's a wagon, too, but I'll keep both pumps functional by adding a third externally to run the sprayer, and putting a bulkhead fitting and dip tube into the top of the tank. That way, it won't leak, and I can put the end of the pickup tube down about where the second pump intake is so that I don't run the front washer system dry.

    I didn't get full on details - but the MRT tech that I spoke to about this when I was considering a trunk reservoir said you could run it under the carpet through the cab and then through the firewall. He was unclear on how to get it from the trunk to the under seat spot.

    I have found with anything like this a very useful tool is a straightened coathanger - try sticking it thru from where you want it to pop out and then looking for it in the trunk.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Andrew
