    Whew thanks man I appreciate it. The reason why I want the larger tank is because I also plan on having a Water Injection Kit. I'm sure they could tap into the reservoir of the 12 L tank. So that way I could the Water Injection with also the FMIC sprayer at all times. Well at least the majority of the times. Once again thanks man. RYAN

    And you wanted some cheapo toggle you would be kicking yourself if you didn't go for the STi switch.

    Very true - PKer persuaded me the STI switch was the way to go and he was right although it pains me to admit it

    If your talking the USDM one- try subaruxtras.com or your local dealer. If your talking the RA one, probably rallispec.com

    Thumbs up Sprayer install (Long)

    Nice install Big Sky, looks good. Yer switch looks cooler than mine, and it's lit. Nice.

    Couple of ideas:

    1. I used a three position (ON)/OFF/ON switch. It was kind of hard to find but I was able to track it down at the local "Fishermans Warehouse". I think it is meant for a boat. I wired the ON position to a "snap action switch" that I found at Fry's Electronics. The snap switch is mounted between the gas peddle lever and the peddle itself. So, when the switch is "ON" the sprayer is only activated at WOT.

    The (ON) or "Momentary ON" obviously sprays only when depressed (like the STi switch), then the switch reverts to the ON position mentioned above.

    Off postition= no spray (der)

    2. I also mounted a small (about 1/4 in.), blue indicator light, that I found at Baxter Auto Parts, into the left side of my center dash clock pod thingy. Tapped it into the new wire just before the firewall. I guess that I did this because I just want to know that it is spraying when I expect it to. I can't really hear it.

    Blah blah:I have a wagon so cost was minimal. I plugged the hose that leads to the rear of the car and ran a second one to the hood along w/ the existing one. I unplugged the connector at the rear washer pump and ran new wire from the switch, through the firewall to the pump. Reversing the function of the motor for winter just means re-connecting the original hose and connector.

    I used two of the 360deg. misters mounted directly over the intercooler w/ little L brackets. Very good surface area coverage.


    Parts:
    Sprayers ($5)
    Vacuum Hose (couple $s ?)
    2 Switches ($10)
    Scrap wire (layin' around)
    Indicator Bulb ($5)
    Misc. Connectors and Hardware ($s ?)
    Hmm, I may have forgot a couple of things, oh well.
    edit: I already had some black wire loom from joes that I used for my amp install to cover the wire in the engine bay. I just ran the new wires w/ the amp wire. (about $5)

    Total cost < $30.

    Total time: Plenty, I'm not the greatest at DIY stuff.

    Later, T.J.

    I'd say your doing OK on the do it yourself stuff - good job.

    Just to update a little I've been fiddling w/ delta dash of late and can confirm intake temps going down w/ the spray. I haven't figured out how long my spray will last- ie how many "shots"- usually a couple/three seconds.

    I'm guessing at a track day I'll wish I had the big RA 12 liter job.

    for the "STi" IC spray switch,

    what doe the wiring diagram means "Auto/on off swithc" and "manual" trigger?

    is pin 1 a "+" hot wire .

    Basically, i'm using the STi- Switch and I want to hook it up to the UTEC and also be able to "manually" turn on the IC sprayer.

    and if i'm guessing, i should hook up pin 1 to a "hot source" but what pin do I use to activate the pump? pin "4"??

    Also, why is there "two" illumination switch?

    Thanks
