It outside temp was 40 degrees
It was 56 degrees at the cold air intake
Exhaust temp was 104 degrees
Airflow is powered by a 12 volt 110cfm cage motor.
I think if my panel faced the sun at a more direct angle the exhaust would be a little better, keep in mind that our sun here in ok is at it's lowest point of the year, so as we advance towards spring and the sun starts its climb back up, the exhaust heat will keep climbing with the sun. Yehaaaaaaaaaa!!!
Here are a few pics of it.
Hi. pal fantastic work...although unless i have missed something I would thought that as heat rises you outlet may have been better placed with the header being at the furthest point from the inlet!! Feel free to educate me if Im of the mark here
