Is the carb heat pipe really needed in warm weather for a T to run correctly?
Not on my car (stock low-compression, swayback NH, Motorcraft F11 plugs, Ford coils on 12 VDC, stock exhaust with turbo muffler and 1.75" diameter tailpipe).
Works fine at 50F without it.
Good going on that racer of yours! Drive it and let it tell you whether or not it needs that hot air pipe.
As always, you have the right answer Seth.
I don't know how right it is, but in the spirit of a speedster where less is more.......
Others disagree with me on this one too, so let your car tell you.
Without means colder air for more power and no added weight!
I've taken the stove off my stock '13. Had it out today at 38 degrees, and it ran fine.
