If you have XP its cake. Save the pic (Rt click, Save As) Open the pic, resize it with the program that opens it. SAve it. Come to this site and attach it like you would any file. Thats the easiest way I know how to do it.

Dry ice sounds like a great idea to me.... Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide, and goes through sublimation (from solid straight to gas), skipping the liquid phase altogether. Hydrolock wouldn't be a problem.... the temperature of it is somewhere around -110 F which would cool the air coming through the pipe quite a bit. Replacing the ice would be a pain the ass.

yeah, but no need to worry abot no water, and during sublimation carbon dioxide wont go into your manifold.
but would sublimation be affected by the heat of the engine bay? would heat increase its sublimation process ?
if the ice box would be enclosed, would it have enough air to undergo sublimation?

thanks for replyin
