    Thumbs down Engine Bay Heat

    SO I have a bunch of DEI Titanium Header wrap left over along with a couple turbo blankets and I'm wondering what components generate the most heat in the engine compartment. I took a gander in the exhaust manifold and it seems pretty damn thick with a lot of casting slag left in but would be hard to cover. I think I can get one of the turbo blankets to work but wonder about it inhibiting corrosion on the brand new charger.

    Anyone have any other ideas on items to wrap to remove heat from the bay? How hot does the J-Pipe get? I also have some left over thermotech insulating ducting I'll probably slap over the Riva air. Has anyone had any experience doing this with any kind of measurable gains? I figure it would be cheap RPMs

    The J-pipe, and Exhaust manifold stays cool, from the waterjacketing. You can touch them while running on the hose. The heat mostly comes from the supercharger, and engine.

    Wraps can hold in water, and can cause corrosion on aluminum, and steel.


    Good hull ventilation helps rid the hull of heat while moving.

    Two 4in flow rites in the cowling. Don't use the ones pictured. Use the sled ones that interleave in. Those fall out. There is a thread with the ones I'm talking about here somewhere.

    I made my front vents function and I can feel the hot air coming out of my flow rights while riding. Having some snow mobile big vents getting made for the black plastic (taking the place of flow rights) like sportsters on the form

    I ride 100% salt and usually some chop. Where would you slap these on an RXT in that environment.
