I remember someone doing it. I see no benefit to it. It's there to prevent freezing up and sticking of the throttle plate I believe. I did it on my old car but that was because I needed to feed the coolant to the turbo.
Only benefit I can see is possibly a cleaner engine bay with less hoses.
Yeah I agree with you. I live in Florida so I really don't need it there but then yet I have a 1.6L and 1 or 2 hp wont do nothing. Just wish there was a great mod for 1.6 to get optimum hp w/o enigine swap lol
I have it done on my Spec-V and I live in freezing North Dakota. There are no drawbacks from doing it, but there are also no proven power gains. There is proof that it cools the intake air from anywhere between 10 and 20 degrees. Cooler air is denser air, denser air has more oxygen. More oxygen, more power. Do it if you are trying to squeeze the most out of the car. It is free...
