What do ya'll think?
So, is it something like Nitruos? or am I misunderstanding it?
it's like running your incoming air through a big freezer before it goes in the motor
So just a new form of cold intake.?
Cold air into a motor makes the motor run better. For ever 10 degrees F you can drop your intake temperature, you gain 1 hp (this is OF COURSE limited to an extent). All this kit seems to be doing (its not adding a combustible agent to the mix) its simply cooling the air that goes into the motor. . . . which works. Why do you add an intercooler to a turbo setup? Cool the intake air temp down, why do you wrap intercoolers in dry ice, again, make it cooler, why do most cold air intakes stick the filter way out in the bumper far far way from the engine bay and the hot engine bay temps. . . to make sure that the temp of the air going into the motor is cool.
Combustion in a motor is the process of compressing oxygen and petroleum distilute. The more air/fuel you can get into a cylinder the stronger a motor will run. So, if you cool down the air, you get colder air (and what happens to something when it is colder?). The colder the air is, the less active its molecules are, the slower they are moving, the less area they take up, the more oxygen you can fit into the same size hole.
Ever notice that on a hot hot hot day your car doesn't work as good as it seems to as apposed to mid late october in the early morning (and OF COURSE your motor is heated up to operating temperature before you raz it). The colder the temp of the intake air, the better the car will work.
I think this is an awesome idea, Pottie.. . . in principle, should work. . . but, reeeeally can't tell until someone has tried it. . . lots of great ideas just don't work out. . . keep me posted if you find anything else out, and if it don't work. . . meh, cheap cryogenic process!
I'll let you know how it works, we've got one in stock, and will be installing it in a vehicle early next week I think.
makes sence - just like the nitrous express kit forthe intercoolers
sprays compressed co2 directly on the intercooler making the intercooler even cooler for the air and increases horsepower alot!
I'm just wondering if it'll be a dramatic HP gain or not. Hell, SEMA gave it the 2003 Best new product(performance/racing category).
I'll stick with my intercooler thanks.
you have an intercooler but no turbo???
Don't worry about it :wink:
But anyways, back on topic.. How much do those systems run $?
It's gonna be between $600 and $700
holy! for that price it hasta work some serious magic!
i think i want one
Well, we'll find out I guess.....I'll keep ya posted.
just a different form of n2o
