But the intakes only on the far right side, the hot air isn't getting down there I could even block it off. Point taken though I didn't even think about it. And yeah I live in a pretty cold area, our high temps have been in the 50's lately although we hit 61 today.Carefull with this install!
Its great work (awesome to turbo a 3FE) but you're porting air from around your exhaust into your cabin fresh air intake. Any exhaust leaks, even a tiny one, will put carbon monoxide into the cab and (literally) kill you.
It's also where your AC draws air so unless you live in a cold climate it will be crazy hot in the cab.
Cooling with the carb fan is a great idea, just send it down or into the fender.
I'll be thinking about this and looking it all over. Btw I filled the manifold, down pipe etc with water to check for leaks, welded up a few pin holes and there is def no leaks
