A before and after Dyno run would be more convincing

dyno run might not really portray it's purpose, it's purpose is to use less fuel and make the car more economical as they believe that a large percentage of the fuel currently going in isn't being burnt, so this is reducing the amount of fuel going in (as the fuels heated so it's larger, so less can fit through in the same time frame) and also making it mix better so it all burns.
Personally, I'd be wondering about the other side. If it's so great, why havn't any car manufacturers done it yet? I mena BMW, Merc, Ford, Holden, Toyota, blah blha blah, all spend a lot on development, have a lot of the world's best car engineers, so how come this Joe Smoe figures out something they couldn't?

Nah, i know that, but i have seen people make fuel coolers and stuff, and aparently it's good for performance... I wouldn't think they'd be going through all that trouble of putting one in if it didn't do nothing.


Yeah but i think that's to cool the fuel in the system i.e. in the tank and fuel lines. Not good when fuel is vapourising before it gets to the engine, it appears this device heats it up just before injection.

Lol, i think for $300 i could track down some appropriately sized washers....

Not much good if it saved fuel but reduced power!

A dyno would be interesting, as the guy said on a quote on TT (or was it ACA) that he originally set out to improve power, but found the economy improvements too.

If it really does work one could argue that i should be the fuel injecter manufacturers (such as bosch etc) who are incorporating a small metal sleave into the fuel injector design...

I see.
I'm gonna get my custom made..... hahaha....
Actually, i think i might try something easier... How about some copper piping, wraped areound each of the injectors, hooked up to the heater hoses.... Hot enough?


That was what the guy had in one of is early deisgns it looked liked when they showed the story on TV, till he finally got it down to a small bit that connects to the injector.

These injector "collars" are held on only by a rubber 'o' ring. Id be worried that the ring would perish (because of the heat) and the collar would fall into the engine! :shock:

So if you can make the same power with less fuel you should be able to make more power with the same amount of fuel huh? Show me.
