Re: whos got a woody?

No a mod for the woodyheatsoaker much simpler and nicer.
It's a little to late in the trucks life to invest in a project like that I've already looked into that and the fan shroud would have to be modified and between cost of components to get that on our rigs it just wouldn't be worth it Dollar vs HP.

Re: whos got a woody?

I was thinking about that after I posted and you're right. In my head, I could conceivably see some room for that to be possible but there just isn't any room.

I have the woody 3.5" intake. Would your mod be beneficial to my application?

My wife's 5.7 has more performance than mine now.... The engine bay on these is really sealed up tight, I need my hood lovers off my 98 5.9 to cool this thing down when it's hot. I think a true CAI for this Jeep is going to be tough, just no air coming in except for the little scoop but it's mostly blocked by the hood when it's closed. I really like the intake but performance just isn't there.
I have the solution for the heat soak issue. I built my own intake and my IATs are 10-15* colder than the stock intake (6-8* average above ambient air temps) with no heat shield and an open filter in the engine bay (this is an SRI). I am using a metal intake tube as well. I bet you guys are wondering what I did to fix the heat soak issue. I will give you guys a hint: It is stupid to put an IAT sensor into a metal intake tube as the measured IATs can be skewed up to 100* or more. Even with an outside air source the tube will still get up to at least 150* or more. Without an outside air source the tube will reach the same temp as the engine coolant temp and engine oil temp (203*)

Here is a screen shot of my Jeep with my intake setup. As you can see the ECT is 205* and it is fully warmed up. I drove it for about 10 minutes before I started logging and this is at the end of a 8 minute data log. The intake tube was too hot to touch but as you can see my IATs were steady at 84* ambient air temps were 78*

Spill it on the mod Chad, on a side note the paramedic looks sick.

I was thinking of using header heat shield wrap on mine with a dusting of hi-temp black paint to dress it up once wrapped.
