    If you consider 75 to 80 F as screeming hot, I agree.

    Continous operation at 170 F sounds too low, espically on floats.

    As far as cleaning the air, bigger is better, that is probably why they changed it. The round filters cost more but last longed.

    As far as positively affecting the power stroke of the engine, I...

    Re: LEE System

    That's a new one on me. Is that an STC'd mod? Hard to imagine the two exhaust companies wasted years of their time and millions of $$ doing R & D when the answer was a piece of 2 1/2 pipe.
