yeah, i dunno what hot ice is either...but if you meant dry ice...then that probably wouldn't work so well, since dry ice is compressed CO2, carbon dioxide, which doesn't burn(its used in fire extinguishers), so any positive effect you could get from cooler air would likely be offset by the CO2 entering the engine.
Dry ice is frozen CO2, unfortunately Dry ice's specific gravity is such that it goes from solid to gas, when exposed
to normal atmospheric conditions, under a specific amount of pressure it is a liquid(thus liquid CO2 tanks/containers)
It would have a cooling effect on the air around it, but you wouldn't want it in the intake. Like I said on AIM some
racers use ICE(maybe even dry ice?) to cool their intercoolers prior to running.
You probably know the new EVOs have an intercooler sprayer that sparys water on the intercooler. He wanted to try dry ice in the water resevoir and add water making the water really cold then have someone hold down the manaul button to continual spary water while he drags. Seems like a bad idea now.
hay guys i know its out of the subject but i know that in some race cars they coil up some fuel line and put in a can with dry ice to keep the gas as cold as possible, and i have seen some people put it on top of their intakes to keep them cold before they race!!!

yea some ricers..I mean racers, buy those cans of keyboard cleaner, compressed air or whatever it is, and spray it in and all around their intakes before they race. heh
I think they are trying to adapt my idea of turning the can upside down and purging out the window I wish I coulda got that patented. Midgets also help for conealing purge valve areas too.... no offense to any short folk out there
