CO2 intake air cooling!

Has anybody else heard of these they have a bulb that goes in the intake and co2 gets blasted through it. It cools down the intake air then you can route the line to blast the co2 to the radiator to cool it down! I wonder if they work or are they junk?

don't know whether it would work or not, but i bet it would be VERY EXPENSIVE to keep operating

Co2 is not too expensive. I think you blast it and the bulb stays cool for awhile! I don't think its a constant flow.http://www.tunerschoice.com/xq/aspx/...qx/Product.htm
They also have intercooler spraybars for you forced induction guys!

The link you gave is just to the intake adapter. Its another $370 for the tank and installation parts.

For forced induction its much better to use one of the systems which uses the A/C system to cool the intercooler fluid. Works really well -- brings the water temps down to about 45 degrees and you never have to buy bottles. I'm sure something similar could be rigged for a non-forced engine.

Frankly though it seems like a lot to spend for the gains.

Yeah I figured it probably isn't too much of a gain. But I got a big bottle of co2 I am looking for something to do with. I am probably just going to make into a tire, air tool power source.

Make sure the CO2 doesn't get into your motor! You'll just be displacing O2, haha...less power.

There is nothing wrong in using CO2, I guess it must be cheaper than buying NO2.
