Ed. What sort of temperature difference between the runners are you considering reasonable/acceptable?

Is "runner" Canadian for what USA people call "headers" and UK people call "Exhaust Manifold" ?[/quote]
And Australians call "extractors"

I'm a runner. Don't run as much as I used to when I regularly ran in 5 and 10 k events.

How Bizarre :? :!:

Ed,
Thanks for the approximate target temp. info: at about what distance from the head/manifold flange do you measure, I tried this before some time ago and found the temp. drop vs dist. significant, rather logically as Spok would say. Is about two inches correct, before one gets into additional metal affecting heat dissipation and since runers join at diff. places need to not get too close to that). If too close to the head does the head cooling affect it? I have stainless headers, not stock cast ones.

Jack

ps: fellow canuck, understood the lingo :)))).

Note,
Just reread, you said "around the bend... "

As long as your distance is the same for all readings it is irrelivent ...I stand and aim .....like the urinal ....Temperature is temperature?..and around the bend is where these guys are sending me aaAAAAAAAAAAaA.... :|
