Sorry can't really help you there.

When I did use mine I left it in Auto. But you will find it needs constantly filling. On a track day at least ever session.

FMIC + remap=switch it off.

STi didn't have the auto fuction unfortunately.

If I am driving fast, I tend to give it a good spray just before accelerating. Although in general, the car gets more cooling than it needs in my corner of the woods.

In general there ain't anything happening when I push the button ! The bottle is frozen solid from October til May... 8)

Which reminds me of one of my buddies in the UK who added an alcohol based antifreeze in the waterbottle of his Evo V ... :slap:

The IC spray on the Evo is manual m8

I generally use it if I want a burst of power if I have been sat in stationary or slow moving traffic. Heat soak isn't so much of a problem with FMIC but it does no harm to use the IC spray for a short while when you want full power

Seen a few Evo's with Auto button.

However, it doesn't ammetr whether the guy who added this alcohol based anti-freeze his car had an auto-spray or a manual. He had a nice under-bonnet barbecue when it sprayed the hot intercooler :explode:
