Default How does the pipe affect Engine Temp??

Hi,

Does the pipe (brand/type etc) play any role in engine temperature? I'm currently running my engine in rich settings and it's still overheating. After some checks, pipe is my last culprit??

TIA..

Is the head positoned so the vent holes in the head are facing the front of the car? I've seen this happen before, especially with the NTC3. Some heads this does'nt apply because they are vented for all postions. Also check gear mesh. Is the body on the car?? You do have enough ventalation in it?
I would'nt think the pipe would cause the problem.

Yes and no, depends on the distance between header and pipe. To short distance, out of the manufacturers range, could cause engine overheating.
But plug type, nitro %, gearing, and total head chamber (shims) would most likely be the cause.
You would have to be more specific. What pipe are you running, with what engine, what nitro%, what plug N, what chamber shimming.

Also wrong adjustment of needle settings even when running rich
will cause overheating of the engine.
