    It was controlled originally by ECU which was using MAP readings to control on and off.... so you can replicate this without using the ECU basically and can set up a pressure sensor off inlet manifold so for talks sake when boost hits 7psi + spray will be activated and deactivate when boost drops below that threshold it switches off.

    Tbh with you, I have never ever seen the water spray make a difference in any car I had it in, and this is only my view but I would suspect if you spent a bit of time and thought on getting cooler air from outside into the filter, and if an open induction filter keeping the hot air away from it.... it would be just about if not more beneficial.
