Are you guys talking about a intake stream injection system, where the CO2 is injected into the intake, and therefore makes its way into the combustion chamber?

Or are you talking about using the CO2 to spray onto and cool down the IC, which by definition is OUTSIDE the intake stream...and just chills down the IC from the outside...

That's not possible. CO2 would seize an engine if it was sprayed into an engine. It sprays onto the fins of the intercooler, cooling the outside of the enclosed unit so that the air that goes through the IC is cooled down.
