Curious if anyone has any expereince with these products? Would this be a way of keeping intercooler and intake colder to get more power?

I had always thought this was a stupid product for naturally aspirated cars, but with some of the ineffeciencies with intake cooling on the MS6 these guys might have something.

I've always thought these things were pretty stupid. I've seen numerous dyno's of cars with these setups and the gains were in the 10hp range. I would just install a nitrous kit and run a very small shot like 20-25hp. The gains will be much bigger and a shot that small will be very low in risk. The nice thing about nitrous is the torque gain. A 25hp shot will probably yield 50-60ft/lbs of torque in the 3-5k rpm range.

But I'm thinking about engine longevity and cooling effeciencies. Seems to me this is a very inexpensive way to gain denser intake volumes and keep car much cooler than shooting nitrous.
