    [QUOTE=pdexta;54783]If you spray it upside down (like the can says not to do) it ices everything over. A frozen intercooler has to do something for intake temps, I'm just not sure how long it'll last with hot air running through it.[/QUOTE

    Dont think the propellant will do that much for you. Pick up a bag of dry ice from Publix and lay a few pieces in frontier of the intercooler.

    I know some racers use ice for the drag strip but it just feels a little odd using propellant to boost dyno numbers. Even so, one would need about twenty of those cans at once to saturate the entire intercooler to its core just to have a trivial effect on intake temp and even then, the effect would be fleeting.

    So the Dyno switch has been fixed. Dyno is backup. I didnt take a picture of my work do =( . Anyways, whoever set this up if you want to contact Autotechnik and schedule another Dyno day.

    Thanks for letting us know. We're definitely running out of time before it's blazing hot all the time.

    I can set this up, but won't be able to participate. I've been pushing my luck lately with getting time off. I am going to be well over my allotted amount by the end of April.

    So it will basically be Scott and Joe unless Joshua magically gets his car running soon.
