Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

I did some thermal dynamic engineering today: I have a bunch of pix.

This is the top to one of those plastic storage tote things (prolly get 'em at Wally's.). A bigger one might be better. This one has a 90' lip. It might work better w/o the lip. It's all I had on hand to work with.

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

The last picture kinda got cut off....
After I was sure it would fit in the spot, I made a notch at the top and bottom.
The notches are to (hopefully) keep the thing from sliding around. If you look where your a filter WENT, there's some kind of brace in there. If you look in, you can see the things I made the notches to sit in.

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

In this pic, you can see the brace thing I was talking about, and how the plastic lid fits. You can kinda see my CAI filter behind the plastic.

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

This is about the same thing, just a little closer. You can see where I tie-wrapped. I don't want it falling out, and I didn't wanna see a bunch of plastic on the road behind me!

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

I don't have a laser thermometer, so I won't have any real data to know if it works....

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

I was going to try mounting a thermometer on one side -just to get a base with the thing in, but it started POURING just as I walked out.

I DID get a laser thermo, but I didn't think to measure the engine block (where the cool air is hitting the block) until I'd been home for 30 minutes...

I'll do it tomorrow and Wednesday, then take it out and test again Thursday and Friday.
