Default Another cheap but unpractical mod?

In light of all the cheap, almost useless mods being sold on e-bay my friend and i have been debating over whether it would be beneficial/harmful/useless to re-route the AC vents to blow cold air directly into the intake. Yes, we've been over many variables; refrigerant somehow leaking into the engine, compressor strain, etc. Now this wouldn't be a huge improvement to the performance but what if it only helped the low end power in first gear when the CAI doesn't have enough air for a good launch...this might actually help. Input/Opinions please...and go ahead and be brutal, i got shot down several times in the NA tech forum!

that sounds just as bad as my friends smog-charger idea. we put headers on his 5.0 mustang and they didnt have the inlet for the smog pump lines...so he had a brilliant idea to route the air into the intake.

this has been posted before do a search, I think it was something like super super cold air intake or something. But its bs it won't work, it takes power to make the ac work, so you would gain anything

I was chatting w/ Brad at Vishnu Performance yesterday and we were talking about getting your intercooler cold, he semi-jokingly mentioned that a real good use for Nitrous would be to spray it on the outside of the IC to cool it - expensive, but if you want cool air bad enough . . .

Default nx n-tercooler

nitrous express has something called the n-tercooler. it sprays nitrous or co2 on the intercooler to cool it down. and they can custom make a spray ring for the size of your intercooler.

Liquid O2. Less expensive, negative 320 degrees, you can steal it off your dying grandpa. Or just take his portable liquid oxgyen tank off his wheelchair and run his cannula to the air intake(just kidding).

I remember seeing this in the GMC Syclone / Typhoon community.

They have water to air ICs so this guy rigged but his A/C lines to run through it and chill the water. It worked too.

Now you could get an water to air and give it a shoot, not free, but very cool (get it?)

u can actually use ur nitrous to cool your intercooler, u just have to set it up so that when u purge ur lines the nozzles point onto the intercooler

NowUcMeNowUdont - Here's a cheap, practical mod you can do all by yourself: Learn to use the Forums properly!! As Jeffg pointed out, you already have one thread about this exact same subject in this exact same forum, so what the hell is the purpose of starting this thread just a few days later?
