Cool can idea for water not fuel
I have been tinkering with the idea of getting a better hole shot off the line for racing,
The super charger water cooled idea got me thinking,
When the lake water gets cooler the ski runs about 200 to 300 more rpms,
In the old days of drag racing you would run your fuel thru a cool can that brought the temp of the fuel down for a denser air/fuel mixture,
I came across this Moroso fuel chiller, and thought what if you ran your intercooler water thru this cooler?
it would cool down the warm lake water and in turn give you more rpms?
The ice would not have to stay very long, a typical race is 10 laps or 25 minutes, but once you got the hole shot and were out in front it is hard for a ski to pass you,

I think Ross on the Yamaha side tried this with fuel. Think he used regular old ice though. The ice only lasted one run while drag racing.

This would probably work great with dry ice but keep in mind you would need some sort of closed loop reactive EMS to continuosly change the fuel curve as the ice melted. If your set up for a 62degree inlet temp and it rises to 120+ through out the race its going to fall pig rich without fuel ratios changing as remp inclines.
Just my 2 cents.
