Anyone care to comment on this??? The colder charge temp should be read by the MAF sensor and the air/fueling adjusted to higher air-mass density right? Anyone try this? Im not talking 50-100 shot, just a small shot into the airbox..

Re: Blast a 20-25shot BEFORE the MAF stream... (mrkrad)

I could see this doing bad things to the turbo housing. Also you might just cause the DV to vent loosing any gains that the charge would give you. It seems that it would be best to run a wet setup and properly tune it. If you are looking for a colder charge then have it vent onto the intercooler.

I do not know about Volkswagens but I know of several 911 turbos that have a whatever shot right into the suction of the turbo. I personally would be more leary of the effect on the delicate pieces of the MAF being subjected to such a big and sudden change in temp. I had to replace mine at over $300. Snake bit I guess?
