Hot Air Intake

Cold Air Intakes are for the movies. They look cool and are easy enough for the average kid to do in the driveway. All cars already have a snorkel that takes in the air from the "cold" area outside of the hood. Cold air can increase power density but more power means more fuel is consumed. And cold air creates more heat loss of the combustion just to heat up the air. I made a simple hot air intake that picks up off of the catalyst and runs at 140F.
