Heh, I thought about that after I posted and then was even more confused.

Fair enough.

Thanks for sustaining the injury.

I mean no offense to you, I just seek to answer your query. Sometimes it takes awhile to get all the information in the correct order.

No, I appreciate it! I meant sorry about your wrist and all the typing

Could you choke the intake path with a restriction? Wouldn't that give the same effect of having to throttle more without the disadvantages of hot intake temps?

the "choke" would also cause a pressure drop. Like having two throttles that are open a little more than one individual throttle. No gain.

Not sure what disadvantages you are referring too, but engine knock is a detectable thing, and adding a cabin control to control hai mix is pretty trivial in the scope of things modder.

+2 to DCB - Even if you used a governor plate, it would just increase resistance, the opposite of what you're doing with the hot air.

The only positive part of a governor would be that you could effectively re-set the 100% throttle position (in the case that there's a new driver behind the wheel, for instance).

Basically, the governor would choke out air supply, so that after a certain throttle position, no more air could get in anyway, so while the pedal wouldn't really be to the floor, it would still be at 100% of available throttle.

Just my opinion, new to the forum, need to vent
I'm just an slightly average mechanic. My opinion is we (the people who pay), are gonna have solve the mpg problem. I telling my age, but i was watching nascar racing in the mid 60's and early 70's. Ordinary guy's who started out racing (with a little history in bootlegging in the 30's, 40's, and 50's. E'nuh of that, one of the best (engineer's, mechanic's or whatever) Henry "SMOKEY" Yunick. Hey, i don't have no degree in physic's, or engineering. I won't even try to explain thermal dynamic’s (but correct me if i'm wrong, a. {a liquid when heated expands in volume}, b. {a liquid's boiling point is increased by pressurizing it}, c. {a vapor under pressure cool's when it is allowed to escape}. However we do it, we are gonna have to solve this! The tinker's, mechanic's, modder's, hot-rodder's, or whatever. I just wanna hand the key's to my 85' small-block g-body to my grandson in about
20 yr's. (getting about 400hp 50mpg, i can dream can't i) It took only one college grad to figure out the trajectory to get to the moon an back. If anyone on the planet can, WE CAN. I think that ole nascar mechanic was on the right track.(no pun) intended) Besides how many patent’s do you have attributed your name, and how many nascar legend’s, people in the automotive industry, do you know on a first name basis. So before
you discount his idea. Do some research! I know i am.
