Removing the weather stripping at the hood line along the fire wall will allow heat to escape and not build up. Or, raising the rear of the hood will do the same thing, as the hood will not seal against the weather strip.
the snorkel is used like a cold air. but instead of being directly connected to the cone filter, its just bring in cold air to place of the filter right now. placing a new tube at he front bumper and then the other side placed next to that same spot will do the same, but better air source.
let me tell ya, i have a blk07 and the hood is always hot , even when my car is not running. so i cut the weather stripping out , about a foot and a half out, and the hood is never hot when im driving it only hot when it sits . i have a duratec and the filter sits in the left wheel well so my chance of getting heat soak is slim to none , but the cooler your motor runs the better . well worth the 10 min
Sounds good, my intake sits close to the centre of the hood so I should definitely do it lol. I do notice in rain when I come to a stop the rain steams off my hood lol. I think I will remove the weather stripping tomorrow. Hmmm might put a remote temp sensor by my intake and measure the difference.
