As fuel vaporizes in the carburetor it has a cooling effect on the incoming air. Cooler air is denser and has more oxygen, the cooler the fuel is when it vaporizes the cooler the air will be and the more power it will make, plus the engine will run cooler also. In drag racing it is common practice to run the fuel line through a canister full of ice. Also the fastest drag race times are run on cold days because of the denser air.
There's something you could try for the Deathrace, Bairdco: chillin' your fuel. And heck, copper fuel line would be perfect for strapping a chilled gel freezer pack onto. Ya know, that may actually work. Whatcha think?
