    Air from relief valve

    I put the stock hose back on the relief valve and ran it out one of the rear vents. I had been running a filter on it since changing the intake. I did this to see how cool/warm the air coming out really is. I have run twice with the rear seat removed. Today I checked it after running about 20 minutes at speeds of 60 and above. It was 98 today and very humid. The air was by no means hot but it was a little warm. Much warmer than air temp. i'm gonna keep running it like this. It may not put a lot of heat in the hull (or in the intake if you are running a stock one) but getting any heat out helps.
    Hey Rudy......... when are you gonna fab up some more heat extractors?????? Make some more and sell them as singles. One on the relief valve would be great.

    Measuring the air temperature reading near the intake vs. what temperature is exhausting from the relief at the point of where it would enter the intake will determine whether or not it is actually beneficial to exhaust it.

    If the air in front of the intake is warmer, it would not.

    ES,
    That's a good point. The air temp coming out at idle is not very warm. But how warm? Don't yet know. I have a small digital thermometer that I can use to check what you are talking about.
    Hey Rudy...... I wanna be able to blow corn starch (or smoke or whatever the hell it is) out my rear vents too.

    Where water temp and air temp are within 10 degrees of each other I would bet it is of benefit.

    That intercooler is not 100% efficient.

    Here is a pic of the relief valve setup I have. I ran again today with the rear seat off. I put the filter I had on the relief valve on the end of the relief valve hose and out the rear vent. I also noticed that the other vent hole sucked air in under light throttle. I don't see much hot air being vented out the rear under throttle. If anything, it's sucking in a lot of air.
