you lose MPG but it's also a lot cheaper than 93 pump gas. i'm lucky that we have 3 sheetz gas station in our tow that have e85.

Yup the cost kinda offsets it and then some on bigger turbo set ups the mpg isnít that bad. Hell at times I feel like my evo gets better mileage than my daily lol. As e85/flex becomes more available it becomes easier to drive places due to station availability.

so going back to looking at heat management: i've got the coated and ported exhaust manifold, and the coated downpipe. I'm also considering:

wrapping the coolant hose
the underside of the OEM exhaust manifold heat shield
the wheel arch area between the front pass side wheel & oil cooler
the brake rotor heat shields themselves

any particular yay/nay to any of these? i think coolant hose for sure, idk how much the underside of exhaust mani heat shield would do, idk if tape on wheel arches would get torn up with rocks anyway, and idk if on the heat shields themselves it would just make it worse (reflect heat back onto the rotor instead of evacuating out)

(https://www.maperformance.com/produc...QaAhPPEALw_wcB) if we geting silly with small winter projects

What are you concerns for doing all of this?

The coolant hoses on the turbo won't hurt but won't really change much
Ex mani heat shield is good
Putting something closed behind the cooler will hurt flow, the wheel/wheel well helps pull air through the cooler. I have chicken wire zip tied to the back of my cooler to keep it from getting beat up
Remove the dust shields they trap in heat

just making sure i manage heat properly.

you removed the dust shields? i thought it blocks heat from brake to brake lines, albeit trapping more heat near the rotor

Air is a good insulator, the line is far away enough to not be affected by convection heat from the brakes. Fluid boils from heat conduction so keeping the rotors cooler where the heat is generated, it's better to not have a dust shield to trap in heat.

good point. maybe remove that & wrap brake line in heat reflective tape? lol

I made a new thread for the 2019 season. With the series getting larger and some pretty big changes for 2019 I felt it was warranted to cover all the changes.
