cool Cold Air

Just a thought on this and its possible way out in left field.

Would active cooling of the intake air on a non turbocharged/blown engine have any effect.

What I was envisioning was a cold box, similar to the fuel ones, but using peltiers on a cold sink rather than just filling it with ice.

Anyway just an idea. Its amazing what you think of while changing brake pads.

You bet... any difference in inlet temps (cooler) is going to be a benefit in power.

Well I'll have to think some more about it.

Once I've got the Capri up and running will look at it some more.

Wonder if before or after the MAF would make any difference.

Initial thought was in the inlet to the air box or in the snorkel if fitted.

Anyway something to ponder.

Cheers.

ice

i know a woman who races a toyota and she tapes ice onto intake of her car. she swears it works really well. but the ice melts real fast so it doesnt work for very long. it might be good for the dragstrip though. as long as u can contain the water some where cause im pretty sure most drag strips wont let u leak water onto the track. and turbo cars arnt alowed to use there water sprays they have on there intercoolers

later
