The general rule with heated inlets is:
- Don't heat them. A cool inlet charge is denser and gives more power.
- Heat them only in the depths of winter when the carb may ice up, and use the heater hose. Pull the hose off the heater tap and connect to the inlet. Then run a new hose back over round to the heater tap. You'll be using the heater in winter!
