As am I, this is why I took some offence to the statement by Mike insinuating as if he were the only engineer on the forum/in the world.Originally Posted by StationRocket
ANY intake/exhaust system has restriction on airflow, thus there is a pressure change.Originally Posted by StationRocket
Actually, 3 psi is quite substantial in the grand scheme of things. Assuming that you are somewhere near sea level, standard atmospheric pressure is somewhere near 14 psi. Therefore, your 3 psi increase in pressure is in the neighborhood of 1.2 atmospheres.Originally Posted by StationRocket
In any event, my point was that any pressurized system is better cooled than a non-pressurized system, regardless of the degree to which it is pressurized.
