^^ That looks amazing. Wicked color, great shell for a motor swap, wow. Worries me though that if the brake lines are done, the underbody might be too, but maybe they rotted from the inside due to fluid neglect.

There are M10 turbo manifolds floating around of nice design too. This would be a wicked cheap turbo project.

For cooling any type of metal bushing when tight tolerances are keeping them from getting installed. Seriously.

If I didn't already have an an E30 and an E34 (that both need work), I'd be very tempted!

Doubt something worth 40 bucks could get cold enough to use the warmest superconductor (which needs -143C) looking up similar cryobaths and doesn't look like it gets any colder then a typical freezer -25 C or so.
Looks pretty useless to me unless you plan on freezing blood or maybe overclock the sh*t out of your PC.

You'd have better luck heating it with a setaline torch, and hammer it off with a chisel.

LOL ^^ dude i was kidding. Though, it would be neat! You can flash freeze sushi with it and it doesn't break the cells of the fish, preserving the taste. (Or so I've heard.)

Anything this thing would do for a car, you can use a can of 'freeze' to do. Or, by a can of air from costco and use it upside down. Imagine my surprise the first time I was cleaning out a PC and accidently hit my hand with an upside down spray. Ouch!

I'm pretty sure he's talking about installing the bushing into the control arm. in which case, the colder the bushing the better.

sometimes when you don't have a hydraulic press sitting at home, and you have to make one out of washers and bolts, it can be hard to install while you're on your back under the car trying to press it in in a tight space. A cold bushing and a hot arm makes the job much easier.
