    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 was thinking something up like that before, use dry ice some how, we were even thinking using dry ice to cool the water going to inter cooler...

    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 cryogenic set up, goes before the throttle body or intercooler and chills the air after the supercharger up to 50 degrees cooler,

    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.

    this would keep the fuel at lake temp after the fuel pump

    2. the cryo2 could work. problems with that is proper venting or the motor ingests byproduct monoxide.
