If you cool the air by expansion, isn't it going to heat right back up when its compressed for combustion? I'll need a couple of stiff drinks before this makes sense to me. And 4 foot blowers? And since when do race boats have fans, radiators, converters?

Question Re: New engine technology, or Hocus Pocus.....?

Not sure exactly what this system is actually doing here, but it sounds like some sort of air condtioning system on the induction side of a motor. The question is, and maybe there are some knowledgeable AC guys here, is that a motor capable of getting a boat of this type and size to 200mph is going to use about 1500 cubic feet of air per minute at top rpms. I would think that the horsepower use , size of this pump, heat exchanger, etc. would make this system kind of expensive and oversize. Maybe It's just got a couple of 50 gallon nitrous bottles? Time will tell all! Hope it works and will really revolutionize engine power.

i stopped reading at 85% efficiency. I'll believe it when it solves our energy crisis. He may need to tweak the flux capictor first.

Solaroli also has new, patented technology that will allow Reggie to double the amount of rapper-bling jewelry and still remain upright under his own power.

Solaroli is also working on physics-defying technology that will make Reggie's hair look real.

Yes, that's his theory anyway.

You can read the whole thing here. The USPTO is full of crap like this
