Default Air Silencer Removal

there is a article in the newest hot rod magazine, and on a dyno pull they took out the air silenser and got no power gain from a chasis dyno. I still took mine out and i like it so whatever. (it was on a bullitt mustang just in case any one wanted to know.)

I changed my mind about removing the air silencer. I took it off a few minutes ago (replaced the filter while i was there) and it left a big hole in the side of the breather case. Such a big hole would allow the intake to suck in hot air from the engine compartment. My car is a daily driver and I sometimesspend a lot of time sitting in traffic with the engine idling. Louisiana is a hot biznatch in the summer. I'll just have to wait until payday after next to get a CAI.</P>


</P>


Is that true? is it bad to remove it if u are a daily driver in the heat? cause if it is then im thinking of not removing it. What do u all think?</P>

I should be getting my Streetsmart Design CAI next week! WooHoo! <IMG src=smileys/smiley2.gif border="0"></P>


There were a lot of posts about removing air silencers. In some cooler cities/states it may not be too harmful but I want to share my pessimism with people that live in hot climates.</P>


I was reading up on the Kenne Bell Superchargers. I came across this bit of information from Kenne Bell:</P>


--------</P>


However, when coupled to an "idiot underhood filter" that sucks in 200 air (the equivalent to another 20 psi boost), the heat may be a problem for any supercharger - centrifugal, Roots or Twin Screw. We've said it before . . avoid exposed underhood filters in supercharged and non supercharged engines - unless you think that your engine likes all that hot air.</P>


--------</P>


Granted, they are talking about heat causing problems for the supercharger but it is still bad for a N/A engine. Heat in the intake air is your enemy. Every modern auto (that I know of)pulls air from outside the engine compartment for good reason. At highway speeds open air boxes may not be too bad because of all the air circulating in the engine compartment. But at low speed, or while sitting still, it's probably very bad.</P>
