eek Really Really Good Idea!

Now before you critisize just have a think about it!

I was looking in dicksmith and saw these cans of compressed air called Air Dusters, they are a can of compressed air ment for removing hard to get to dust and dirt etc. Now when you spray the can very very cold air comes out which has no residue or condensation and if held down for 10 seconds can freeze the thing being sprayed...

Also another product called freeze spray which instantly cools components!

Now If you had a Pod Filter setup in a type of enclosed area such as a box and developed a way that you were able to press a button from the drivers seat which caused three or so cans of this compressed air to spray around the pod filter, wouldn't the pod filter suck in the freezing dense air and therefore get more HP almost like using NO2???

Re: Really Really Good Idea!

You don't want to freeze up the filter though, then it won't suck in air...

Re: Really Really Good Idea!

This wont work,

#1 the pure amount of this product needed to mage a decent drop, well heaps...

#2, spraying it at the pod will use up some oxygen, and even if its cooler, it will have less volume to inhale = less spark.

nos works by cooling the air in the chamber, and as it does that , it releases oxygen, which is why you need to add extra fuel with nos.

Re: Really Really Good Idea!

Well no I wouldn't have the spray facing directly at the filter it would be sprayed close by it so it would suck it in at its own liking?

Would this actually work and create HP gains, what is the temperature of NO2 when it is sucked into the intake???

Re: Really Really Good Idea!

I know this isnt going to create 150 HP at the rear wheels, but wouldnt using the freeze spay when not sprayed directly at the filter have large HP gains compared to a cold air intake??? Cas the more cold air the filter has to suck in the more power the engine will create, isnt this corect. So if you had three or so cans spraying in a small enclosed area where a pod filter is the temperature would dramatically drop causing the filter to suck in colder air???
