50\'c+ Intake Temps
« Reply #15 on: September 21, 2007, 05:14:16 PM »
Ok here goes

This is how it was prior to me butchering the headlight frame and re-positioning the primary filter...


This is how it is atm...




This is how the front end sits without the sidelight removed...as you can see the front mount sits directly flush with the "duct" on the front end...as i said i need to make a top and btm tray that goes from the fmic to the rad and then another seperate undertray...

This is what i wanna do to my bonnet literally butcher it! Hehe...red areas will have open venting i.e just big holes but with mesh covers to allow heat to escape...

blue area will have some sort of scoop to get air into the filter/turbo area...



So whats the verdict people??? Will it work or not? :p

with icooler in that position u shd be getting excellent air temps cant udnerstand why they wld be so high/in traffic yes but after short movement they should be plummetting.i would have water temps wld have been more of an issue.
my v mount gives good temps on cruise but i think it requires more ducting to get best results

personally i wouldn\'t cut the bonnet open. It will look sh1te, let all the rain in, make the engine dirty quicker and also be a weak spot for thieves wanting to rip the alarm out. A better idea would be those bonnet lifters that raise the bonnet from the hinges about 1" Only trouble is this looks crap also

Well the car is never parked anywhere as just a weekend car and its garaged at home, so it being stolen not an issue...

The rain thing - it never goes out in the rain

Kev-Yorks done similar with his bonnet and it looks good because its done with the stock bonnet.

Yes fair enough it will get dirty quicker but im always cleaning it anyway LOL

I hate those bonnet lifters with every inch of my body...and it just gives more ammo to the local jackass\'s "Er your bonnets open mate"

this was a DIY job on my old FD.  Not to everyones taste

You need to get that gap between the 2 closed as you say.  It wont really help with your temps in traffic though

its quite a few years ago now so i cant really remember and i never took it on the track.  I was never happy with the water temps, the fans were basically on all the time in traffic.  Driving along on a day like today it would be about 87-88 but in traffic on a hot day and it would struggle with fans on all the time and would eventually creep up to 100.

Air temps were good and came down pretty quickly. I think on a day like today i would see temps of about 30 - 35 at cruising speed. No W/I though

i shouldnt think so but cant really compare it to stock inlet temps.   especially if its in a different place,  it may be that its closer to the block or something
