just trying to post pics. so if it goes through it will be a pic of my HAI

i moved the air intake around today and got 60+ degrees. i think i will leave it alone and not make the shroud.

do you guys take the readings for your gas log from your scangauge, odometer or gps.

I see you use 'dryer hose' too. Clever.

Explain how hotter, less dense, air improves performance.

Odometer vs. pump is the only consistent and most accurate way.

The odometer always records miles consistently. The gas pump can be inaccurate for one tank (due to variations in when it clicks off while filling), but data from multiple tanks is quite accurate as an average because it's how much gas you actually used.

GPS is subject to various failures (lost satellite, miscalculation, forgot to turn it on, may track only 2D mileage, etc). ScanGauge is very inaccurate for MPG no matter how well you get it dialed in, but it has been consistently accurate as an odometer for me without having to adjust it.

Lower density means less oxygen per volume, which means less fuel injected to react with that oxygen. You could simply not open the throttle as far, but then you face pumping losses. Additionally, the heat helps vaporize the fuel for more complete combustion.

I wonder if air, entering the combustion chamber at 130 degrees as opposed to the cooler factory induction set-up, will have any effect on fuel that is injected?

i will take odometer readings and then multiply them by my corection number taken from my gps over 100 miles. i will just multiply my odometer reading by 1.9 because my gps read was 101.9 miles when my odometer read 100 miles on a straight highwat trip.

here is a pic of my grill block
