Ya. Maybe use some of the hardware that FORD is using on it'* "SuperCooler" technology for the SVT F-150 Lightning. They circulate refigerant through an auxillary evaporator attached to the trucks air conditioning system. Claim a 20% decrease in intake temperature for a 10% horsepower boost.
This idea has been used before in the 60'* but the old R-12 A/C refrigerant is toxic if combusted in the engine. Now the newer R-134a refrigerant doesn't have that problem soooo.......go for it.

Be the first to do a air-to-air intercooler into a water-to-air intercooler. That would cool the charge to low low temps. I will allow you to use my idea first.

You gonna give him that big ADTR intercooler hanging on your wall?

You should post that pic here, but put something in it for a size reference first.

If it'* as big as the ones I used to put in back in my early Shelby Dodge days I was putting in intercoolers 36"H x 48" W x 6" depth. But I wasn't putting them in my old Shelby Dodge'* though -I was putting them in buses at the New Flyer USA plant in St. Cloud, Minnesota. First off, they would fit in a Shelby Dodge, and then the lag problem too - oh that'* just too much for my brain to comprehend.
Actually the hot air-to-air intercooler'* that were/are popular and could be had from a local salvage yard were from Dodge Cummins turbo diesels, Ford Power Strokes, and more in the mid-sized intercoolers were from the Mitsubishi Starion/Chrysler Conquest TSi. Then, there were the Gen1 Talon/Eclipse BOV"* (Blow-off-valve'*) to hold higher boost levels allowed with the bigger intercoolers.
I know this info isn't overly usefull here, but thought I'd throw it on the table for consideration (the intercooler'* that is).
