Has anyone heard of a Cryo-Intake. It supposed to reduce the air temp for the air intake and also made to aid in intercolling (if you have an intercooler). I was watching a show and it showed it cooled the air temp of air going into the engine to around 37 degrees F (Uses a CO2 tank).

I have seen these guys ads in Sport Compact Car. Seems to me that the only people who would really benefit from this are running very highly boosted, high under-hoop temp applications. The thing that they make that makes me laugh is their "Cheetah" Its a CO2 vent in your front bumper that you aim at the other guys CAI. Its supposed to "steal" like 3HP from the competition when you really need it. Nothing like super high-tech rice.....

Im making a C02 sprayer for my intercooler, but ill do it for like... 50 bucks or so. Plus the cost of a tank. There are fewer laws against C02 in the car then NO2 which you technically have to have a hazardous materials sticker for to transport.

Would this benefit for a stock engine (still waiting for an aftermarket intake that you don't have to rig for the beta-2 engine)?
Would it void the warranty (I have a 100,000mile bumper to bumper warranty).

This is an on-demand system, so it's not like it'll continually allow your engine tp create more horsepower like a CAI.
If you're talking about the Cryogenic air intake, they say that it would only run for about 2 to 3 minutes continuously, or 5 runs on the strip.
Still, it's an interesting concept. Since I'm used to working with compressed gasses and cryogenics at the lab I work in, I agree that it'd be relatively easy and cheap to rig up without their kit.

I plan on using like a 5 or 10 pound bottle which wont last long at all, but there will be a suplemental water sprayer for my intercooler also for just hot days in traffic or something.
