inlet manifold cooling idea

Sometimes threads get out of hand. People start offending each other or do things that are not allowed (like asking for illegal software). These sort of threads will end up in the 'Hall of Shame'.

Wrap it in polystyrene, an excellent insulator.
Don't you already have a bonnet vent, or do you want a bigger one? :lol:

Maybe thats what happens when you call people chicken shit just because they don't jump at your beck and call because they are too busy doing other stuff to get involved in stupid online arguments about your sodding engine :angry:

well , the bottom line is , they already have , called fuel injector cooloing fans , and can be had on some european models . there is no pwer advantage to be had from cooling the inlet manifold , if you have an intercooler , that will suffice , heat soak is only a problem idling around town .
