Default Sounds dumb

it sounds really dumb
what if there was a box that surrounded the intake tube that coul be filled with ice to cool down the air

it would probably be better to have a metal intake and i realize it would onlybe helpful in short stints like just at the dragstrp

I think it would just add needless weight & would be a pain to keep full of cold water.
But your idea sounds good though.
How about straight Oxygen injection from a small tank (simular to a NOS tank)?

It'* a good concept, but it needs to be improved upon and engineered. Maybe something from the compressor for the air conditioner can run cold air over the intake.

Not to step on any toes here but straight O2 would be even worse than nitrous, it would cause the mix to burn even hotter than with nitrous. i dont have the time to explain now, have to go to class, so i will post later.
