My quest for cool fresh air!
Im really not diggin how The fresh air vent heats up the incoming air quite quickly even on the 60 degree setting. I don't want to keep running the AC. The hvac filter and its cover are mounted to the engine cowl, which sits right on top of the hot engine. The cowl and filter and cover heat up from its closeness to the engine causing the air drawn in to heat up. Also the entrance to the filter is way up towards the front, not back by the wiper area, which would be more ideal to draw in cooler air. Burger makes these HVAC filters that replace the big stock filter and cover and cowl, and they attach dierctly to the 2 hvac openings. I was thinking this might allow the fresh air vent to stay cooler, but without the cowl, which houses the rubber seal to keep water out of the engine area and the engine heat from escaping, my system would be pulling in more hot air than before....so I'm thinking of just getting rid of the stock filter and filter cover, but keeping the cowl in place. This way the heat seal would still be in place and the hvac openings W/filters, would be able to pull in cooler air from the wiper/windshield area.
What do you guys think?
