would'nt you want a "Hot air Intake ?"
[don] Running outside to run a air filter to the heater core ! :D d'oh [done]
Unless there's something wrong with my PGT I've noticed it's even slower in hot weather.
No no no! :p
You want cold air going into the engine obviously because it's more dense, which equals better combustion...
But in terms of air resistance, the hotter the air is, the less dense it is, which equals less resistance and a faster Probe. The same principle is why they do the land speed records in the desert in the summertime.
So, in order to be your fastest, you should run nitrous in death valley.
