I think it would be alot easier to cool the outside of the intercooler than running plumbing to spray inside the intake manifold. The added benefit of having the vapor resultant sucked over the engine by the cooling fan to add extra engine cooling.
This should make the intercooler more efficient and thus reduce intake charge air temps. Spraying water or windshield washer fluid tapped off the existing fluid tank in the front fender shold work nicely.
I wonder if anyone has taken temp readings of the intercooler charge air between the intake and outlet to see what temp rise during on track boost type cycles. Then spray the coolant mist on the intercooler surface and see any drop in delta temps.
Anyone done this yet?
