I have a friend that let me borrow a cool can that he used for drag racing. He said to fill it with dry ice and go racing. Our tech man doesn't look at much so i think i can get by with it. I am also wondering if i will need to re-jet the carb.

Thanks

It is a can with aluminum tubing coiled in it and is used to cool the fuel on the way to the carb. I think i can hide it in the fire wall.

I knew a guy who ran one...he used frozen H2O ice. IMHO the coolness of the fuel isn't a factor....it's the temp of the air/fuel mixture. Since you can't cool the air---I think the balance would be off.

I have thought of putting one in the trunk near the fuel cell...Insulating the fuel line and getting some cooler air to the carb could add up to increase "volumetric efficiency" (nice word huh?)

i tryed that on my ol'stang at the drags and it didnt lower my et any.think its a waste of time.if ya think about it how much heat is under that hood anyway it would just warm it back up by the time it got to the carb.just my opinion
