you will be using engine efficieny by running the compressor dont know the sums but it will probly outdo the positive effect from cold induction air?!

As has been said, has been done, many times. Pretty much you need to be getting into the bigger power figures for it to be worth it.

can be useful if you only require short bursts power.
Run the refrigeration when the engine is at part throttle to chill down a tank of coolant.

Now what is highly dangerous, illegal, difficult to tune and does work well is if you have an LPG engine and you use a special Tx valve to spray liquid LPG into the inlet manifold. cools better than methanol. They tend to blow up in various ways and don't go for long. Don't try it.

on a turbo diesel ac i cant imagine it robbing to much power and the temps you could get off coil would be very low like 3 to 6 deg

How cold do you need your inlet air anyway? If you go too cold you're going to get water condensing in the intercooler and have water droplets going into the engine. You'll end up with cold spots in the combustion process which will probably rob power.
