Any thoughts on these? All this intercooling talk has gotten me looking outside the box a little bit. but here'es some examples.

NX Ntercooler

For supercharged or turbo applications where nitrous is not an option, NX offers another alternative, the “N-tercooler”. Using either nitrous or CO2 this unit can reduce air inlet temperatures dramatically. In a recent dyno test, a turbocharged Honda, equipped with an NX “N-tercooler ”, increased its baseline by an astounding 52 horsepower! If it makes horsepower, it must be Nitrous Express!

the NX is a great set up under massive boost, and only good in short bursts

i was toying with the idea of installing a pulling fan/s on the intercooler i have yet to test it though

popular mod for the rally guys is something as simple as spraying cool water from the windshiled washers, redirected to the front of the intercooler

honestly though if budget is of NO issue, a small lightweight water/air I/C setup would be best

IMO the procharger is too big and uneccessary if your boosting under 15psi of boost

the CO2 sprayer will release a lot of condensation when its spraying at ambient or warmer temps. I assume you guys would rather not have water dripping everywhere inside your engine bay, unless you do front mount intercooler setup.
