RX Super Chiller
Anyone heard of this? Wonder how hard it would be to adapt to a Turbo system.

Here's gonna be your problem:
The RX Super Chiller uses the cars AC system to chill the coolant used in water to air intercoolers to temps of 22-32* F on a continuous basis, as long as the car is running and the AC compressor is on.COBB AP ProTune by Bren of ///Bren Tuning

What about running one of these? Even if it was inline with the existing FMIC?

And then, perhaps something like this, a Freon to Water heat exchanger plumbed into the existing AC system with some extra freon added.
And then the water lines going between the two heat exchangers and a little custom FMIC piping.
I suppose the two things to think about that come right off the top of my head would be:
A) Would this overload the cars Freon to Air heat exchanger that it uses and is it upgradable
B) If if so, then the freon may not come back to the compressor in a cool enough state and may overwhelm the compressor by taking in too much hot refrigerant
C) How much added flow restriction does this add to the charged air system
D) Exactly how much more refrigerant is needed?
E) How much does this add to weight and cost?
F) How to only cool the Water to Air Intercooler with the refrigerant and not the cabin?
