I dont recall seeing heat exchangers like ours on the 917. They have an entirely different set up. Heat kills the heads...true. But you cannot discount the radiant heat that comes from the headers. This is a large source of heat can cannot be ignored. We are not talking about race cars that have their engines constantly rebuilt. Also the fan set up on those cars is completely different. I had the same thoughts you did and from my testing I found the engine ran hotter, especially in traffic when I didnt have alot of air flow across the heat exchangers. I do have the "heat sheets" now and I will evaluate how they do. but, my initial findings are that they work. I only go them because of the recommendations from people on this website.

Currently I would like to port the heat from the heat exchangers out from underneath the car, so I can lower the temp of the engine compartment. But I havent come up with an appropriate design yet.
