Default NX chiller

has anyone used or heard of anyone using the NX chiller system that uses nitrous to chill the supercharger to reduce its temp. their site said they tested a honda with a turbo and got 52 HP from it.

Yeah the NX chiller is a cool system. It has the nitrous and fuel rails combined so that the nitrous will cool down the fuel rail as well and have more power because it'* cooler. It takes some polking to get it work but it'* cool stuff.

There is a company working on a nitrous or alchol cooler for the MINI Cooper * right now and I know of at least one guy who designed his own.

He mounted two or three Nitrous nozzels in front of the intercooler and then had a manual switch to activate it.

I know the Mitsibushi EVO 8 has a similar system from the factory for its front mount intercooler. The EVO system uses a water alcohol mix though and has both manual and automatic settings.

i have seen a WRX that did that. using washer solvent to mist the intercooler under boost. used a wagon washer bottle with a second pump. but nitrous is like -700 degrees i think, instant cooling, but we have no intercooler. we can just get the intake charger as cold as possible before it hits the SC

Just about everything you wanted to know about N2O.

http://www.camd.lsu.edu/msds/n/nitrous_oxide.htm

Here is the Physical properties of the gas.

Physical Data
Boiling point: -127.3F (-88.5C)
Freezing point: -131.5F (-90.8C)
% Volatile / Volume: 100
Vapor Density: (air=1) 1.53 at 20C
Specific Gravity: 1.226 at -89C
Solubility with H2O: slight
Vapor Pressure: 745 psig
Evaporation Rate: high
Appearance: colorless gas
Odor: sweet odor
Taste: sweet taste

When the nitrous leaves the nozzel and goes from liquid to gas it will be around 127.3 degree Boiling point.

Yes we have a very different system so if you want I can get you a kit made I have the biggest west coast distributor of T&T and NX ready to supply us with product. Yes co2 too.

I cannot advertise my prices or ill get busted but if you are interested I can get you hooked up I can offer 35 40 or 50 shot deals but you are going to need a better fuel pump for a 50 shot. You will also need colder plugs and I will offer both ngk and denso plugs. I talked to NX and with them and my supplier I can have any custom system you want.

T&T systems are more $ up front but to run at the track there are certain parts required (wont list them) and they are included in a T&T system. For the Bonneville attitude and Bonneville club forums I will provide an unlisted deal. Otherwise it* all retail.

Ty
