Hi, I have removed the plastic cover and insulation blanket off the top of my 540 engine in a bid to cool the intake air. We have had temps from mid 20's to low 40's in the last few weeks. Can anyone tell me if I have caused myself a problem or not??. Thanks.
Thank you both. No, there is no problem and temp sits quite constant at just under 1/2 way but good idea about protecting the intake from outside temps. I had assumed it would be always hotter in there anyway.
