I have noticed over the last couple of months that while I have been stuck in the usual morning evening traffic then want to give the beast a few beans the car lacks the normal power. The only thing I can put this down to is the car getting to hot under the bonnet and sucking in the horrid hot air. If I am moving the car is perfect…. Could it be time to think of vents….? Anyone else having the same issue…?
Interesting Simon, and i was waiting to see if this issue materialised. I am getting an A/S induction kit fitted next week which has a Powder coated alloy heat-shield with 80mm cold feed pipe which directs air to bottom of filter. So be interesting to see if this helps reduce `heat soak. I like the idea of bonnet vents though but what ones to go for????
