A cooling system for cooling intake air in an internal combustion engine. The system comprised of a two-stage turbocharging subsystem having two turbine driven compressors in series with two intercoolers and a closed-loop refrigeration subsystem having cooling coils within or in close proximity to the insulated intake manifold of the engine. This cooled intake air results in a lower peak combustion temperature which results in lower levels of nitrous oxides emitted by the engine exhaust.
