External IC idea
I was thinking and came up with this thought for racers. Would strapping one of those blue chiller blocks, used in cool boxes, to the outside of the IC make a big difference in performance. Obviously it's going to melt but may last 1 race then you just replce it with another from the cool box. Only drawdown is that your beer is going to be warmer!!
Just a thought, maybe a stupid one at that!

Now on your ski your always picking up for a cooler source, the lake or ocean. A ice block on the out side I don't see doing much. If you had a box you could put ice into, with copper line weaving through on the inside and run all the water through that cooper line before the intercooler, I could see that helping if your in a hotter climate. Ice wouldn't last long though.

Wouldn't you better off leaving an internal IC and just icing it down with Nos or something?

Could you do a co2 spray on the fins of the intercooler....I know they do this for front mount intercoolers for vehicles

A similar idea has already been tried, and works. It was not covered under stock class rules as prohibited, but the racer that used it this past year in Nashville was DQd for it, even though it wasnt hooked up!
It wasnt your exact idea, but similar, and more effective.
for the length of a race it doesnt make much difference, but if you are doing radar runs or gpsing it will help for sure.
good thinking though!

Another idea I have read about
I have read on the internet about someone looking into the possibility of running the IC intake water through an adapted car air conditioning unit to cool it further. I am over in Perth Western Australia and have seen water temps of upto 26degC, so we need all the help we can get.

A small shot of nitrous into the intercooler will drop intake temp big time! If I owned a 4-Tec motor setup this is how I would do it. I would say forget ice, that is too much of a pain.
