Hot/cold driving, anyone?


#1

Is anyone else noticing that when it gets warmer your car feels a tad bit more sluggish?

When it’s 20 degrees out it takes longer to warm up, but the engine has a deeper than normal for a B16 growl to it. I love driving in the winter because it seems to have more zip through 2nd and 3rd gear.

But now that it’s in the 70s during the day it feels more sluggish. I dunno what the realistic numbers could be, but I doubt there’s a real big difference between driving in the cold to driving when it’s hot out.

On the brighter side I’ve been getting better mileage since it warmed up.

23-25 average just went up to 25-28 average, and yes… I need a tune up.

Anyway, yes I know my car is already slow “blah blah, blah”.

most cars usually run better in cold weather

That’s why I ran a tube from my air cond vent to my CAI intake and crank my air cond to FREEZING. It gives me like 200 extra horse power. I totaly smoke Yugos. :gears


#4

It’s true. My car pulls harder in the cold…once it’s warmed up :tard


#5

whys why i put icecubes on my whipple :lol


#6

So true cool air increases Horses thin air … heat thick air :lol :lol

well… uh… i don’t know, I just know that she has it mixed up

cold air = dense
hot air = thin

cold dense air = better performance

Oh …cool air is thin light air … Hot air is thick heavy air :lol :lol

Re: RE: hot/cold driving, anyone?

what? no.

cool air is more dense, so it’s heavier.

Hot air is thinner, so it’s lighter.

heat RISES, cold falls.


#11

i just put ice bags on my CAI pipes unti lit begins to condense over and crystallize. then im set. :rock


#12

Ok had the right idea just backwards :smiley: :D… But i always wonder what Humidity has to do with it cause i know it makes it so HOt some times you can breath …

A correct asshole. :fu :fu


#16

What are you correct at you didnt answer any thing :fu :fu and all i did was get it backward


#17

So no one wants to challenge my 200 horsepower AC mod? :wtf


#18

Re: RE: hot/cold driving, anyone?

backwards is a pretty big mistake. Like sticking it in the poopar by accident. :lol


#19

i believe the temp difference between winter and summer has a minimal change to car performance, but slight. I think the reason i can attribute the “noticible” change to is the pave and tire temperature. My car definitely spins more on cold pavement which makes you think that you car has a lot more power, but in reality it doesnt.

Now i don;t know if thats the case for you 00si, because… well, because you know, the whole spinning tire issue :rofl Jk
