JSB Racing intercooler misting controller

Right, this is just a feeler really, and a request to find out if you think it's a worthy idea. I think I might be able to use the shift light kit module for another product. As the module has a high current driver on board to run a lamp as opposed to a series of LEDs, I have the idea of controlling a water pump with that to provide water spray to be 'misted' over the intercooler, to aid cooling. The input could be configured as a temperature sensor input from the intake manifold, so that when the intake temp increases the water is sprayed onto the intercooler, until the temperature decreases.

What do we think guys?

Sounds a good plan.

Could also run an aquamist/water injection type device?

See that could be a better plan. I'm looking into whether I can use the PWM input as a basic switch. It could use a simple temperature switch that has a hysteresis. Normally water injection is just on permanently isn't it?
