    I've seen this all over. This is easily do-able, but you want to have the newer, lung-friendly refrigerant. What 99% of the market has in their vehicles is not said refrigerant.

    drain of an a/c system would not benefit the gain in power in the long run IMO

    i think maybe you guys missed something in the reading. i talks of injecting cooling down a stored amount of coolant and then feeding that into the the existing intercooling system..i'm thinking air/water intercooler with a super chilled charge when you need it. it also says it's only good for 30-45 seconds and will regenerate in 2 minutes or so.

    sum up, i take it as a normal water/air intercooler with a heat exchanger (think vortec supercharger with aftercooler) that has a seperate holding tank that is super cooled (like putting ice in the system) to quickly drop the temps below the normal operating temp (increase the efficiency of the intercooler, like the Ntercooler from NX).

    anybody else get that from the reading?
