Yeah well running an engine in a Los Angeles dyno room ain't the same as getting groceries on a December day in Minneapolis.

Stick around we'll make you smarter than Car-Craft can imagine, we’re just here to increase your knowledge base without the prejudice of trying to sell you something.

In the mean time re-read what I wrote, I didn't dispute the colder yields more power, I just put in the real world provisios that you gotta live with when you do this to a daily driver. Provisios that gets omitted in the advertising copy.

I've often considered that the hot rod manufactures like Edlebrock miss an opportunity selling manifolds like the Victor Jr. which really works well except during that time and place where there's real winters. Imagine a Victor Jr. choice that's has the valley closed around the runners so it can get warm and sold as a year around high performance street manifold. You reading this Vic Jr.?
