Does anyone know what this is or refers to?

I've heard of cold air intakes. Cold air intakes are devices that are installed onto your air intake line and chills the air before hitting your engine. The colder air creates more horsepower (the colder the air, the more air that can be forced into the cylinders - more air, more fire, more horsepower).
I have never seen a system like this. In my experience, a cold air intake has always referred to a system that draws fresh air from outside of the [very hot] engine bay. As you said, the cool air is denser and can therefore be mixed with a greater amount of fuel -- generating more power.
