No? not a sleeper.
because you complained about AIT and now talking of puller fans when there's a brilliantly simple solution to make the IC close to 90% efficient all while staying a sleeper. That and there's nothing better to do than be a hater.
You can't see under the hood when it's shut.
Foam wrapped around the air filter makes the intake noise almost silent. BOV now recirculates to the comp housing so that's even quiter too.
SC will have a lot of SC whine coming from the inlet of the blower. I'm piping in the IC pipe to it. I don't yet know how that will affect SC whine. I think it will reduce it but how much? No idea. I hope I can reduce this noise to almost nothing, there are factory SC cars that are quiet so it's been done before.
If you don't like it, fine. You don't have to!
thenudge- My goal is to have a fun, fast car. It's already fun and fast, I'm just going to make it more fun and more fast.
If I don't succeed (blow up engine, for example), I'll build another one and try something different.
I was having high AIT's for several reasons as I've posted here or in the other thread here. The IC was very close to the radiator (causing it to heatsoak) and it wasn't getting enough airflow. I'm going to move it to get it away from radiator (will solve heatsoak problem) and going to put fans on it for airflow. Will it work? Dunno. I will test and see. I though my last IC install would be great, it isn't, I'm changing it. You can't win them all. If the new idea doesn't work, I'll try improving it or changing something else.
I can say I ordered a few extra AIT sensors to monitor temp in multiple places. So I'll have more data this time as to how the system is operating.
