Mr Turbo
I did it the el cheapo way, using the rear window washer pump and main washer bottle. Hooked it up via a relay. I got a proper STi waterspray nozzle ($20 each) but you can use a retic misting nozzle.
There are more elaborate setups you can do using separate reservoir tanks,pumps and spray controllers triggered by boost pressure.

Thanks for the info El_Freddo & lefty.
Sounds easy enough, so I might have to have a go at that I think.
