Since I dont have a car to put one of these on, yet.
I was thinking a test is still in order.
Attach an EGR cooler to my 212cc 7hp pressure washers exhaust. Pass a known amout of water through the heat exchanger, measure the delta temperature.
If it works well I may have to attach one to my pressure washer and enjoy having the pressure washers water warmed for free.
I figure a 7hp pressure washer running flat out has to be burning roughly the same amout of fuel and generating about as much exhaust as an aerodynamic ecomodder car being driven for fuel economy.
How does that sound?
