And one more for good measure...
This idea, perhaps induced by sleep deprivation, was strictly for appearances. It looked good in my mind when I saw this flexible tubing in the store. It was like, "Wow! Hey! I could slip this over my Induction Tube! That would look awesome!"mistermike said:It should provide a small degree of thermal isolation.
I tried the vent tubing 20 minutes ago. I started out with 6 pairs of sox, and now I'm missing two sox. What's worse is they're not even the SAME COLOR. Darn it all!!!!!!mistermike said:It should provide a small degree of thermal isolation. Actually, I'm not much of a stickler for looks if it works. Form follows function. In my Probe I have a big piece of plywood to keep hot air off the intake. Having said that, let me know when the socks are done.
Haha, theres no airbox and your talking about thermal isolation!!!It should provide a small degree of thermal isolation.
Where are these "extractors" that you speak of? And what is "thermal tape"? I'm wondering if "thermal tape" inside the louvers on my carbon fiber hood would draw even more heat out of the engine bay.White Rider said:...You can also get thermal tape for your extractors which will keep the engine bay cooler...
Looks much better. :thumbs: :thumbs:FLORIT said:Thankfully, this idea was easily revoked. I have removed the aluminum tubing and restored the HFI kit to it's intended state. Pic attached, with the date and time included so you won't think I'm cheating.
Man, it's a good thing I didn't buy that "chrome in a can" I was looking at!
Header wrap. Fiberglass tape you wind around the plumbing.White Rider said:extractors- the exhaust tubes that come out of your engine? Maybe its an aussie term.. sorry...
It's some sort of thermal tape Ive seen somwhere, maybe a magazine or a forum, it was a while ago... I'll try an look it up, basicly you just wrap it around the exhaust "extractors" it insulates them keeps more heat within the pipes- it doesnt look pretty, but apparently does a good job.
