Cryogenic Fuel Bar = does it work?

I came across this Cryogenic Fuel Bar System: http://www.designengineering.com/pro...asp?m=sp&pid=3
From the website:
Product Description
The CryOČ Fuel Bar is a billet aluminum extension to the fuel line with a cryogenic chamber. The bar is charged with liquid CoČ and freezes to -80 degrees f. Heat is removed from the fuel as it passes through resulting in a colder fuel charge.

Just wanted to know what's everbody opinion on this. I have not seen this sytem installed, no reviews, nor dyno graphs. I know that cooler air will help an engine, but cooler fuel? What do you think?

hard to say. sure cooler fuel will help.
but the money (well, your money) will be better spent
on a ecu and good tune.

do the stuff well known to give power gains first.. you got lots to choose from.
(ecu/tune, cams, exhaust, power adders, etc.).

then if you still want to go faster -
start experimenting with radical stuff.

Well, I do not intend to purchase the sytem, i want to do get a ECU and get a good tune first, and then open the motor. I just wanted to get some discussion out of it, because when I asked at work I had mixed response. I think (and I could be wrong) that it would not make that big of a diference. Sure colder air would benefit an engine, but cooler fuel? I know that cars with force induction do better in cooler weather, but I have not felt (on a NA engine) the difference between cool and hot weather (beside heat soak) and I do not think that cooling the fuel would take care of the heat soak issue. Anyway do not know if my rambling makes sense or not, but I just came across this and wanted to understand more about it.

Conventional wisdom says that for power, you want cool air (denser charge) and warm fuel (better atomization). The part of the system that looks most useful is the intercooler chiller, but you can do pretty much the same thing with water injection. Interestingly, these guys don't make any claims on their web site regarding performance or economy, and there's no rationale posted to lead you to believe there are any benefits whatsoever.
