i am also not a p****

Question intake experts Q?

i made a ganzflow replica diameter about 2.4". unfortunately i just did a temp test in the intake and the temp of the air going in the tube increases quite a bit while in the tube. i wanted to if i should :

1) ditch that one, it is heavy and aluminized steel, get the PDM one for $50
2) work on this one with isulating material until i can get it to the rigth temp, ie aluminum shields around the engine, plus thoce beer cans slieves.
3) just go for the cobb

thanks guys

The Cobb intake will increase the intake temp as it travels through the tube also, since it's still made of aluminum. I saw a post recently where someone tested several, and the Cobb showed that in thier tests. I have a GanzFlow, and I insulated it using Frost King self-adhesive foil-backed foam. I don't have anything to measure charge temp differences, but I'm sure this helps stop it from warming up too much.

I'm interested in how much did it increase inside the tube. Do you still have the results?

Good info dc. Try a test and tune at a local drag strip and run the test again. This time you will have actual et's to go with it.
