ST205 Water-to-Air Intercooler functional from factory?

Postby kkelly3201 » Tue Sep 08, 2009 6:02 pm

After some poking around online I am under the impression that the water to air function is not operational without manually setting it up, I've read that the hardware is all present, that it is just not functional. Am I missing something? I hope I'm wrong.

Huh?

Could you be more specific? Or are you talking about the factory antilag which came on the 205WRC, but was not operational?

From what I can recall, both the anti-lag and the heat exchanger sprayers are not functional on the ST205WRC's from the factory.

Well I don't believe I own a WRC, but I thought that was the higher-end model, why would it's parts not be functional?

The anti-lag would likely destroy the turbo in quick order if it was functional.

Do you mean Water Injection?
It comes with the reservoir and sprayer but other then that, you will need to go out of your way to get it to work.

Water to Air intercooler: Yes
Anti-lag: No
Water Injection: No?

The non-functional parts exist for homologation purposes (so they could be used on the Rally car)

The 205WRC models (2500) came with functional, but disabled Waterinjection pumps.

See photos and info on www.gtfour.co.uk -> what is -> 205WRC

they put it in soo they could use the systems in the races. wrc rules required the manufacturer to make X amount of cars sold with the same systems. if toyota didnt comply they wouldent be able to use the systems in their rally car.

soo why arent they enabled? well anti lag and water injection dont make for a good dependable consumer car.

So can the 185 cold start injector be used on a regular 205 engine to adapt for water injection?
