My buddy runs methanol in his eclipse, makes a pretty big difference. CO2 will make a pretty big difference, but i dont know anyone on here or locally that does it. Better to spray the IC with nitrous though in case you suck it in to your motor, if you have access to a refill shop.

I want to say that Nick (STX) has a CO2 sprayer on his 9-5, though I'm not quite completely sure.

Though my opinion is that if you're going to be paying a pretty decent amount of money for the type of system that would make a significant difference.... your money would be better spent on a bigger IC. I've got a homemade alcohol sprayer setup on my car that I spent maybe $30 on. Depending on what liquid I'm using to spray, it'll drop intake temps a good 10-15 degrees.

Yea i would upgrade my IC before i added a sprayer, but a sprayer and upgraded IC is a good idea.

NO way, this non vig setup is a really good design, and it's made out of only quality materials.

i ran it, it definetly makes a difference, but the annoyance of no power on a 100 degree day when you ran out of spray is really annoying.
