CAI & IC water spray

Image

CAI is just your standard 90mm PVC job. Bell-mouth isn't really obvious in this pic.

IC spray bottle is from a commodore, not sure which but it has a long neck and is a great shape for fitting into the guard. Had to cut about 5cm off the neck to get it to fit under the bonnet.

Image

4mm irrigation hose and mist fittings

The spray isn't perfect, but my entire setup cost lest than one decent metal nozzle, and it does the job just fine.

Hacked the crap out of the back of the stock blank to get the button and LED in
Image

LED is a water level indicator, using a float switch from Jaycar. Stuck a 470uF capacitor across the LED to act as a ghetto de-bounce, if the light comes on and off during "spirited" driving I'll go for a monster cap; somewhere up near 10,000uF. As it is it's likely to light up while driving up a steep hill, but should be fine under most driving conditions.

VERY nice work re: the waterspray mate. PMD and I were going to try and fit a Commo reservoir a few years back but never got around to it. It looks to be a great fit! :)

Thanks Pete! Besides having to cut off the original mounting points from the widest sides of the bottle and shortening the neck, it's a great fit. If I really wanted to I could have made the CAI longer as it would *just* clear the bottle. Regardless, the bottle is a good shape to minimize disruption in air flow.
Unfortunately now I can't use one of PMD's blanking plates. I was counting on the 5KW gain from the PMD sticker!

The original commodore washer pump was already attached and working. It's a bit noisy, but bloody hell does it ever put out some water! The pump is on the flat side of the bottle that you can't see in the pic. The float switch I added is next to it.

Fortunately the bottle will hold ~3L, so no worries there.



They're a good little pump those! PMD and I were impressed when we some testing with it.

Nice clean 99 mate. Looking forward to future updates considering how short a time you have had the car! :thumbs:

Wicked! Loving the electronic side of things, thought about integrating an automatic circuit for it?
