Something different

I was wondering if you could make a seperate tubbing from your air condisioning and bring it to you air intake with a flick of a switch. this would bring in alot of cold air and make it run better. i don't know the details but it would be really cool. like nitrios but last longer and cheaper

ive thought about this also. i think quite alot of ppl do but then realise that the power you lose by turning the aircon on wont be gained by using the colder air. i think its one of those solar powered torch situations. :P

Sort of the same idea as water injecting, except they use cold water to make the air more dense. I read in SVTOA that they had a cold water injection system that might make in on their future Lighting (If they still build it) and Adrenaline. If I remember right, they had a patent pending.

SVT designed what they call the "supercooler system". basically, under normal driving conditions, it would use the vehicles AC system to chill a reservoir of intercooler coolant. when you give it full throttle, some valves would switch over and that chilled coolant would dump into the intercooler, causing a gain of up to 50 horses (as claimed by SVT) due to the significantly lower intake temperatures. this "supercooler" would have a functional life of about 30-40 seconds (definitely long enough for a few 1/4 miles), and would recharge in 2-3 minutes of normal driving.

And here, i find i,m not the only one with ideas.
Mine is to redesign a cryo cooler that would either wrap around a cai or inside the cai itself. either that or buid an airbox with it in it.
would seriously chill the air.
Anybody wanna give up an old cryo cooler for me to toy with?
hmmm, maybe i'll just hit it with an ol fire extinguisher, works for chillin a 6 pack of sodas in the desert...
