Yes, of course, it's a joke.

However, despite the fact that the cockamamie contraption is basically a CO2 adder, it still gained .6 tenths.

It does make me wonder if there's a less asinine, more thoughtful way to make a colder-than-ambient air intake.

Strange. In some idle time the other day I remembered Cool Cans. I was wondering if they were still an item that was used. I just Googled it and sure nuff, there they are.

Well anything to get "likes" on one's YouTube ch.

Track rental for this "stunt"....someone paid $

Every Test & Tune track day I go to there is always the crowd using bags of ice on intakes (typically ricers with fart cans)….by the time the staging lanes move to get you to the line....the motor is at full operating temp at any track here in SoCal....especially Irwindale

Some of the "ice" crowd do have "pushers" to get their car through staging....maybe they get .00x better times

Yes but did it get above 88mph? Actually did not watch. I enjoyed looking at that paintjob for 2 minutes though.



It reminds me of all the heated (frothing, downright Hatfield/McCoy level) debates years back on CAIs drawing from under the hood v. "outside air"

Actually I considered a cool catch type of approach. But instead of cooling the fuel simply wrap copper coil around the intake tube and put cold water through it. Ir maybe use an A/C unit to cool the outside of it.

I'm not sure how you could keep enough water cooled to do this and if you add another AC compressor I think you would defeat any gains from the cooler air. I would think insulating the tube would help more. One time I thought of using some stove pipe. It just occurred to me that if you could get air from outside the engine compartment and use a small, 6 inch, fan to blow on your filter. That may work but again I doubt the gains.

Maybe exhaust wrap on your intake would help.
