That is interesting about the cold gas but a bit counterintuitive. Did it work? Engines don't burn liquid gasoline. They burn vapors emitted from liquid gasoline. I'd think cold gas = less vapor = a lean burn. Maybe good for for MPG but I'm not sure about horsepower. It would also cause the engine to run hotter than it should which also reduce power output.

We also were doing the cold air intake into the carburetors’ also believe it or not. Most of the late 60’s sports cars had some type of a cowl or some type hood scoop so apparently auto manufacture new the value of cool air. The designs of Dodge CIA I say in my opinion is not the greatest because on my original air cleaner, there was no force air from outside the engine compact, only outside source of air thru the fender. So now you cooler gas coming into the carburetor and cool air outside the engine compartment…..Better combustion. I would believe in everyday driving if you get better combustion, I would think you would get some better mpg.
