I think it's a bit easier to do this on the Jap cars as they are already water-cooled and thus a little simpler to tap the existing cooling system.

I've seen very few with a stand-alone cooling system for the IC, something that is obviously going to have to be used on a 930. Guess at a mini mun there will be a pump and some kind of reservoir and associated plumbing.. seems llike a lot to me.

Curious: I had spoken to a tuner a while back who suggested the use of Nitrous to cool the charge air prior to entering the IC. He spoke of using a metered injector in the IC inlet pipe suggesting that the cool charge would be thoroughly mixed and further cooled upon exit from the IC to the intake.
Any thoughts on this approach
