EDIT 10/1/01: ORDERING INFORMATION DOWN BELOW....
Ever hear of the term HEAT SOAK? In very LOOSE laymen terms, it's when the heat from your engine/turbo "soak" up your horsepower, making a 200hp car feel like a 160hp one. It can be that bad. Well, TURBO cars are VERY VERY prone to heat soak. What can you do about it??? Participate in this group buy!!!!!
InterCooler Misting Kit
ick (aka...inter-cooler kit) $27.05+shipping
1 three ft hose
2 elbow joints
Here are the pics:
If you take a look at the above website, Lee (guy who did it), has temperature charts. Take a look at those!
WHY THIS KIT???
This kit will spray a VERY FINE MIST into your ic. It won't drip either. Most other nozzles drip. It's good stuff.
10+ people would LOWER the price to $21.64+shipping
What else you'll need:
Temperature Sensor (so you know how hot your IC really is). You can buy a digital one at your local Target Store (near the Car parts section). It's the Springfield's PRECISE TEMP. $10.00+tax
Install instructs. Not really much to it to be honest with you. Ask the forum for now cuz there's so many ways of doing this.
TOTAL cost of this mod: UNDER $40!!!!
Oh. And you should do the Wheel Liner mod too. That can range from $0.00 to $50.00 depending on your preference. The Wheel liner mod is where you cut out/drill the driver side (Passat) wheel liner to allow your IC to "breath". The forum members here can do a better job explaining this than me.
So who's interested? I need a raise of hands.
Disclaimer: DOING YOUR OWN MISTING SYSTEM IS YOUR PET PROJECT. YOU CAN'T BLAME ANYONE IF YOU DO DAMAGE SOMEHOW.
