Quote from: Sublime/Sixpack on January 06, 2009, 12:07:43 AMI can understand the benifits of blocking off the crossover, but don't you need the crossover open for proper choke operation? Or am I not thinking through this correctly.

Quote from: flyinlow on January 06, 2009, 12:32:44 AMHey Ron,How much Heat do Firemans coats insulate you from?
Quote from: Ghoste on January 06, 2009, 05:08:07 AMNot so much for choke operation as choke assist and emmissions. The idea of the heat crossover was to get heat under the plenum of the intake and reduce fuel puddling and get everything atomizing better. This sound fine except for a few key points. First, the quality of modern fuels as Ron mentioned; they boil too quickly and make the crossover contribute mightily to vapor lock. Second, one of the reasons for crossovers as you noticed was to help with cold weather operation, but it is cold weather operation from a large scale manufacturing compromise point of view. These cars when new had to operate in Arizona and Alaska. Drive your car much in the winter? And I mean real winter. Most of us, when we take these cars out it is rarely in freezing temps and when we take, it is seldom a jump in and throw it in "Drive" right away to get to work. We let it warm up in the driveway for out afternoon cruise. Lastly, the heat crossover robs power and many of us drive these cars for the feeling of power they have available. Our compromise today has become one of better acceleration over less practical utility driving.

Quote from: kamkuda on January 06, 2009, 12:15:33 PMThere is a local guy how was having some performance issues, including intake paint burning off. (the guy with the charger that we met at the Canadian Tire Cruise) This may be a help.Thanks
Quote from: Sublime/Sixpack on January 06, 2009, 12:17:57 PMIt would be interesting to have a heat measuring gun like Ron is using. I'm a curious type so I'd probably be checking the temp. of the various engine parts plus the brakes, transmission, u-joints, diff., etc.
Quote from: John_Kunkel on January 06, 2009, 07:49:52 PMI'd like to see comparative numbers with the identical setup only with the crossover open.
