Some jerks even purposely pull sneaky staging tricks which lenghten the time. So the other persons engine will heat up.
Thats why you get a fan switch and just turn your fans on high, so all they are doing is hurting themselves.
Anyways, to answer the Ice question, evidently it really helps. On the GTP the blower doesn't get hot because it is a Stage 4 ZZP Blower so we have never tried it, but supposedly you just set a bag of ice (the kind you get at a gas station or convienience store) on the top of blower for like 10 or 20 minutes, then the blower will be much cooler (it gets very hot even after just driving around and not getting boost), since it is much cooler the air will be cooler, since the air will be cooler it will be more dense, and it will cause less knock, meaning less knock retard, meaning more power and a faster ET.
