I think you'd be waisting your money. Now im not a expert on Nitrious, but I think the gains you'd expierence would be minimal in comparison. You'd basically have a really expensive, really cold intercooler spray kit. Like I said Im not an expert but I wouldnt do it..........Im also not a fan of nitrious, I think you should take that money and put it towards handling or braking mods

Dont waste your time and money. It will cool your i/c, cooler charge, but $$$!!
People do this because they have a n2o sytem fitted and purge the lines onto the core for jollies, its a wee bonus. not just to cool a cooler.
Fit it up properly and then purge it onto your core if you feel so inclined.
It wont hurt you, or your boost pressure.

you might get 3 hp from a frozen core, or 30 hp from a small n20 setup. If tuned correctly and not used daily, you wont have too many probs with it.

Edit - wolfs ideas isnt bad - do some braking or handling mods if your scared of nitrous.

I really don't think it'll help at all, and you would barely notice the difference. Maybe with a EM you would notice more of a difference. You would be better off just placing dry ice on the IC

*********** from fastwrx.com website **********************

"Perhaps you don't want to spray nitrous inside your motor, for whatever reasons. Here's a neat system that gives you the intercooling effects of spraying compressed gas, but with a simpler and completely external approach.

Basically, the N-tercooler harnesses the extreme cold produced when high-pressure gas is released. The gas sprays directly on your intercooler to lower the intercooler temp to well below freezing. The result is a tremendous drop in intake temperatures. Dyno tests have seen increases of over 50 horsepower!"

your not actaully spraying it into the motor, so its not gonna be a bad thing. it might not give you a whole lot of gains though.

i read an article about intercooler sprayers a while back and the only time they really noticed a difference in performance is if they sprayed it before a run. while the car was actually running down the track they noticed no difference in performance, but a small gain if the IC was cooled before a run.

i would never waste the money on nitrous to spray on the IC, but if you used co2 it wouldnt be that bad.

if you do a wetshot into the motor and have it done right, you'll be fine. I would do a 50shot. thats what im going to be running this spring in my car.

its not really meant to be a real-world performance application... its just kinda a conversation peice. it will do what it says, but i wouldnt want my intercooler to be running +100 degrees, then instantly cooled down to sub-zero... then heated back up to 100 degrees. that will cause cracking, or major warping in the metals.
