This part of "we" knows that plastic is a much better insulator than highly conductive aluminum. For example that is why frying pans are made of aluminum (to conduct the heat) and the handles are wrapped in plastic (to greatly reduce heat conduction to the cook's hand).tuner-automotive said:I plan on changing the intake pipe that comes out of the throttle body and goes to the MAF from plastic to aluminum.
As we all know , plastic is not a good insulator and the aluminum will not allow the air to heat up as it passes .
The isuzu 3.5L was used in the 1998+ trooper and acura SLX clone. Thats it.mbalgach said:i'm thinking about re-working my intake system - does anyone know what other trucks or suv's the trooper engines are in? isn't the 3.5 V6 made by chevy or someone?... .
