FWIW it may help to mention blast tube diameter - I use 3/4” inside diameter & no issues with cooling in 550+ hrs to date

Alain,

I had forgotten about this thread until this evening.

http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ad.php?t=88012

Take a look at post #8 on the first page and post #12 on the second page. (I can't remember how to point you directly to those posts.)

They highlight the temperature rise and fall after engine shutdown.

As for the temperature issue, most high temperatures are recorded after the engine is shutdown and the aircraft is parked, say for fueling.

You can add additional thermal stickers to see what temperatures you are dealing with.

That or install an EICommander, which can report the maximum and current temperatures.

Remember, the blast tubes are supposed to be aimed at the neck of the P-mags, not the rectangular section.
I'm thinking to install some kind of temp probes in the engine compartment to monitor the temps in the cowling.

Blast tubes are 3/4", and are directed at the round part, as recommended by Emagair
