I installed a intercooler mister kit on a 337 saturday from 20 valve tuners.The kit was super easy to install and had everything needed to do the job. The kit fits all mk4 turbo cars. It proved itself to me in 107 degree temps.It was like driving at night or early morning.Very cheap.$55.00 Contact C. @ [email protected]

I'm not sure if this is the same one or same design that this guy is selling but in answer to your question

If you have to worry about water freezing in the winter months where you live you won't be worrying about IC heat soak.
Edit: keep scrolling down to page 11...Thanks for the link http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Hehehe I don't want to hear about hot until you live in the desert like us. Anyway, in the summer you can have the IC mister activated and/or using water, in the winter you can go back to washer fluid for your windshield and/or disable the mister. My guess is that these cheaper systems just reroute the washer tank to the IC mister and still maintain use of the washer jets for the windshield...shouldn't be a problem then. i.e. don't activate the IC mister in the winter when you have washer fluid in the tank.

Dry heat yes. People around here have a fit when the humidity level gets above 50%. We get snow too in Salt Lake (not in Vegas where I am half the time) and no way in hell would I trade..I'm originally from the East coast (PA) and no all too well about that miserable humidity

Back on topic: Does humidity have any effect on IC effeciency?

Well I am so sorry and since you are done typing here is a recap of what you said...school is out kiddies:
Water vapor acts as a buffer, stabilizing temperatures and water is an excellent molecule that abosrbs heat efficiently. high humidity is like an intercooler mister. it reduces charged air temperatures.
One school of thought : Dry air has more usable(combustible) 02 thus making more HP
Other school of thought : More water vapor causes lower intake temps and lower temps of combustion due to innate kinetic energy of water(read brownian effect of water)
Common agreement : Humid air helps reduce heatsoak due to water vapor acting as a buffer on the IC.

nope sorry.. if you wanna play hardball you might wanna bring something with you when its gametime.
