COLD AIR, RXP
SO, reading all the talk aboutair intake, and fans and 12v, well I had a thought to run by everyone. When air is compressed and released through a pin hole the expansion of the air causes it to super cool. Like CO2 tanks. So the thought was this. A compressor from an airbag kit with a 2gal tank do the plumbing and electrical setup to release the compressed air right in the 90 degree turn into the SC. So at Top Speed, you would activate a switch to add super cool air into the system. So would this hurt the engine? would it work? In theory it sound like it would, especialy during those 90 degree days we get in miami.

sounds great other than you run the risk of going way lean if the motor can't compensate.
Essentially sounds like a scaled down dry shot of n2o...

Whoever told you to do that is an idiot. If you put dry ice in your intake you run the risk of running lean and seizing your engine.

To see any positive results from this "dangerous" method of gaining speed you would have to add pitch to your prop because "if" it worked you would be hard on the limiter and since you had to add so much pitch to your prop your ski would be a total dog after the dry ice melted. Same thing goes for nitrous on a ski.
Also, do you know that dry ice + water + confined space = a potential bomb?
Who told you to do this? Surely they were kidding.
To see a consistant gain in power find a way to draw cold outside air into your intake.
The best intake i have found for a RXP is a Riva power filter extended out into a port into the front seat vent using flexible hose. This way only colder, denser outside air is drawn in.
Hope this helps!

I thought the best way was a tube pulling air from the rear.

Thats is by far the best way, but i do not recommend it for anyone else due to fear of water ingestion. I ride in glass conditions.

Comon of course they where kidding. Although though the set up of ram air intake in the top compartment with some dry ice around the filter would get colder air temps. But forget the Dry ice what about the compressed air thing I mentioned in the originaml post.

Honestly, i don't think you would see any benefit from releasing compressed air. It would only be short lived. Just like nitrous. There are plenty of ways to make real power that can be used at all times. Your idea of the air intake to the front hood is a good one. I did it and gained lots of speed.
Do a search for air intake mod and you will come up with all sorts of neat things.
