Heated IP lines

Hi i just decide to waist some time on a upgrade for my 6.2.

I know that the heated fuel burn better ,but is no good to the IP and will generate air bubble into the fuel over 120F-140F .

My goal is 200F-210F , because i run WVO/SVO/ and i want to try on fuel too.

my system generate 55W on each high pressure line and they are isolated for the winter time.
I tested them on a fiberglass oven at 450F with no problemo at all , so i decide to go ahead with my crazy idea.

Right now i only run on manual control OFF/LOW/HIGH ,but the thermal shut off switch are in place for automatique operation.

Afthe driving test the result are conclusive for the power increase and the smell at the exaust.

The WVO smell drop within 1 minute and when i cruise on HW when i switch the heated lines on 30 sec later i have to depress the fuel pedal a little bit,or i gain in mph

Very interesting indeed. Am I understanding correctly that you are heating the injector lines after the IP?

Neat setup... Where did you get the heating elements?

Also, just out of curiosity, why is the intake and everything painted red?

Red's the faster color of course!

Hi i build my heated elements myself. It is so simple i can't resist when i found out how.
I simply use ; 20 gauge electric wire (the one they use to rebuild electric motor they are isolated with a varnish)

Each section of 50 feet produce 224W of heat with that wire.

I simply wrap on each IP line (the one with 1800 psi) 6'4" and i wire them in series to reach 50' total lengh.

And after i coat it with a fibrer glass resine , paint it to prevent the rust and your done.



Anb i repeat for the next circuit because i install 2 curcuit , just in case i need more heat for my WVO

And the red is because i read somewhere that ,it cool the air much better than the other coulors. and it is suppose to replace a IC easely . . . . . .. and i had noting else on my shelf

Ed

Is pre-heating the fuel in the lines only beneficial if you run wvo, svo, bio, or is it helpfull when running regular diesel aswell? Just curious because it looks like a very doable mod that might be worthwhile if it helps with regular diesel. In my part of the world it just gets too cold to run wvo or svo. I am looking forward to trying out bio-diesel in the summer months though.

Yes it increase my power by little bit ,i can't say how much but it does. and it also reduce the emission .

Why in your part of the world you can't run wvo???
My setup is O.K. and i run all year around .tested at -28C (-18F)last year.

This thread is worthy of a sticky, Ed start a new thread titled " how to make your own heated injection lines" and give lots of details and pics. We can get it posted as a sticky so everyone can build their own. Great idea and great pictures to go with it!! Keep up the great work!

Take a look at High Sierra's sticky on how to bleed the fuel system for a reference. That's a good and clear one.
