    Default plumbing water to the carb box twin turbo v-drive.

    in the middle of re plumbing my boat and when i took it apart it had water plumbed from the exhaust to the carb box but the whole boat was plumbed ass backwards anyway so.....
    was told it was designed to have oil going through it and that people quit doing that years ago.
    should i or should i not plumb water lines to it after the motor and exhaust to warm it up a bit?
    my theory is that since the water will be cold until the motor warms up anyway it would actually be cooling the air fuel mixture when it needs to be warm the most.

    Is this a draw through Banks system?

    The following link may or may not be helpful.

    If it were me, I would not plumb any water or oil to it at all. If you have an issue idling in cooler weather I'd consider it a "possible" option. Cooling it will do next to nothing and heating it would be considered a big no-no given the current knowledge of forced induction technology. Again, personally... if it were me... I'd just skip it all together.

    Good luck,

    No way would I add heat to the inlet charge.

    WTF! so while some are spending thousands on innercooler, Scahill tells you to pipe hot water under the carb?
    Not me!

    My understanding of this practice,, which was originally done on many of the production turbo kits, was to help make the engine idle better. Most ran engine oil through the carb box, then to the turbo. When I raced my Schiada, I didn't run anything through the carb box, but even the Gentry kits have a passage in the carb box.

    I always had mine plugged on my Banks setup and it idled just fine. Never had any reason to add heat to an intake
