I don't really understand what it is. I read it twice and still don't get it. It also looks as if it requires something else...

The only thing I can tell you is that you shouldn't get Nitrous Oxide because it's not good for your engine. There's a Firebird around here with it and it takes off like a jet. He has some Nitrous kit though, not this intercooler thing. Or maybe that too. Don't know...

That is designed to further cool the air that is currently being cooled by an air-to-air intercooler. You will find air-to-air intercoolers on most turbocharged and supercharged cars. You would just be wasting $600, as cooling the radiator in your car would likely only make it run worse.

:confused: Intercooling/aftercooling a forced air induction system is an entirely different principle from throwing ice cubes on a radiator. (The radiator goes cool, the thermostat limits water flow, and the engine temp stays the same. No brainer, except for the marketer's wallet...)

The Evo's have a factory installed intercooler spayer, that sprays cold water onto the frount mount intercooler. Car and Driver tested it, didn't make too much of a difference if I remember right, only picked up a couple tenths or hundredths, and that was during hot lapping.
