    That being said....the best I can do without a bunch of expensive thermocouples is just give it a push right before or right after I go WOT...short of doing a full intelligent system, I'll just hit it "whenever" and hope it's doing something worthwhile.

    Edit: I don't know why that link always shows up as "browser warning" but it's just a link to a site that sells parts for an intelligent IC sprayer that anticipates when you will need a cooler IC and uses several integrated sensors to spray the IC before you get on the gas so it's cold when you need it to be.
    Yes, that's my point...I have been looking at my IC IAT before and after IC for over 4+ years, and have come to the conclusion that it's not a whenever situation ...It's a consistent 1 min to 30 sec. lead time that's required for spraying of IC for most IC cool down before actually going WOT for best results to get the IC ready as a heat sink to be able to absorb as much heat as possible. Knowing that is all you need to make the water sprayer as efficient as possible without any fancy controllers, switches, or thermocouples... Other than giving the IC a shot before stopping and just after starting the car to keep heat soak as low as posible, It's the most you can do... Unless you want to go where I went with my TMIC that's as good as a FMIC (of the same size).

    Right side of your trunk - across from the scissor jack. There's a light that comes on if your reservoir runs low. Just keep it filled halfway when below freezing

    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond itís compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.
