hey i was just wondering if after a long stream of shots from a mini 14, would it help to poor a little bit of water on the barrel, or would that just cool it to fast and cause warpage/cracks in the barrel?

I WOULDN'T DO IT! Let it cool on its own.Burning up ammo is BIG FUN, but you'll burn up your gun too.Even on machine guns like the M-60, firing at 100 rpm requires you to change the barrel every 10 minutes. Let it cool and ,if you want your mini to last, don't shoot it like it is a machine gun.
