heres the low down...
do you drive the car on the street mostly?

if no, maybe its good for you..if yes, do you have plenty of places to buy
ice, and not mind pulling over and refilling the resevoir with ice every
few hours?  

It runs on ice water, which needs to be replenished. Kind of nice for a
drag car, but stupid for a driver.  Plus its REALLY expensive, and I
wouldnt doubt that one of the reasons they used it with a 65 mm TB only is
cuz it will work witha  65 mm tb...notice how they didnt try the TC inter
cooler with the 65?
