The CO2 would be in the tank, not in the motor.

Still probably not good idea.

Yes this works. Yes you still need a pressure chamber to reduce or hopefully eliminate the sonic wave that we form in the the pipe to eliminate the excessive pulse thats produced in the pipe from effecting pressure in the tank. The Furony deal is a bit over cooked in my opinion (yeah I know we all have belly buttons and A$$holes). YB Slow there has got to be an Aluminum Extrusion in existence that could be adapted to provide both functions. The fins running on axis instead of radially...the heat sink used for high amperage ceramic resistors would be a start

I am busy making one on my own. Just used a piece of aluminium, drilled some holes and grind out the rest. OK, not fancy but no one will see. On top a piece of an old 486 cooler. The only thing I have to do is place an angled nipple on top of it.

All is nicely mounted under the radio plate:

Nice, my only concern would be that it might absorb heat from the pipe.

I think there is enough airflow and enough distance it will cool more than taking the heat of the pipe.

Yes, I have to go to the LHS to get a angled nipple which will come on top sticking out through the radio tray
