Re: You might want to think about heat

i don't get that

any air going through the HE's , is air that isn't going over the heads and cyllinders...

beeing that the HE's bolt on to the heads, under then for that matter, and the air is blowing down on the HE's or headers, i don't see how any exhaust heat can go up , since it's blowing down from the heads in the first place

call me thick but i just don't get it

block off plate = more air over your heads
block off plate or not , heat can't transfer through air if the wind is coming from the direction it's supposed to transfer too

for all intent and purpose, if HE's are meant to add cooling to the heads, then why doesn't the 917 sport them?

also , block off plates, are they a simple after market mod?? i do remember seeing them on the Porsche Werks racing cars...RSR's if i'm not mistaken
