I really gotta post here, before things get too far ahead.
Sure, I’ll post about it here.
According to what I hear, the Hot Air Intake should work on a Gasoline
engine. Diesels supposedly benefit from cold
intakes, so long as it’s not winter.
Forums seem to have taken a nosedive since 2011, but this one’s still alive. Meanwhile, I’m posting in a specific guitar forum where only I and fewer than 12 other people reply.
I haven’t modded my Explorer recently, but I’d like to put the hot air intake piping back on. It’s meant to go close to the exhaust pipes.
On a recent long 200+ mile trip, on the return trip in the last 70 miles, I was seeing intake temps at 130 - 136 F even without the piping to the exhaust. Maybe it was just hotter outside then, but that’s not usually what happens. I’d see it go to 118 at most uphill these last few weeks, but I don’t often drive the car long enough to usually see that.
I’ve considered putting some fiberglass in the engine bay too, to keep it warm in winter months and shorten warmup time. I got a bunch of fiberglass cheaply in a yard sale, so that’ll work out.
My last tank came out to 20.9 MPG, but I think the pump shut off too early; it was a Sheetz pump (the gas was $2.999 vs $3.359,) and I’m used to pumping at a Citgo station. The on-board computer was reading 20.1 MPG, so I know the pump was off.
