    Has anyone used a cool can to chill the inlet water for the intercooler?

    I know the cool cans are made for fuel, but has anyone tried to run the inlet water thru one to cool down the 90* water temp?
    It seems simple enough to make one, with some copper tubing and a 2 gallon igloo cooler,
    this 98* air temp and 92* water temp on the Texas coast is a rpm killer,

    it would be for a Closed Course racing application,
    10 laps usually take about 15-25 minutes per moto, then put fresh ice and water in for the next moto,

    You may need more than two gallons. Dry ice and glycol may hold up for a few minutes, and the water would definitely be cooled.
    I say go for it. What do you have to lose--besides heat? lol

    I don't think it is allowed for racing.

    it would work good for drag racing but for closed course your best use would be on the fuel

    A good quality IC makes that practically useless.

    Hey - if it doesn't work on your ski, that's basically 3/4 of all the parts you need to make a moonshine still

    If the water temp is 90F, and ambient is 90+F, then an (impossible) perfectly efficient IC would produce 90F iat's. Not good for power.
    IF he can cool the iat by 10F, that's a significant difference.
