The cooling effect only "makes power" indirectly, but it does help. The cooling effect allows a denser air-fuel mixture in the same way that an intercooler does. However, again, the real advantage (power adder) is the ability to run really high compression and shove a lot more fuel through without detonation and without overheating- of course, the cooler combustion really helps this.
29/10ths cubic inches of raw power.
