Using Carb Heat as a mixture control

For what it's worth...I was curious if anyone else has discovered that you can use the carb heat to cool your EGTs and CHT?My Jab 3300 works great. I was able to dial my motor in during the Phase I flight testing. Jetting and baffles are important, but the single biggest discovery was the use of Carb heat to affect the mixture.Applying Carb Heat has the effect of thinning the density of the intake air. Soooo, applying partial carb heat during any phase of flight has the same effect as richening…See More

I did have a 3300 with the Rotec TBI. After much experimenting, I believe I finally did get a air feed that worked. The problem of course is that getting reasonably consistent mixture in all cylinders is very difficult. The last approach I used was to have the intake vertical. There are some pictures of this on www.n708hu.com, see picture 1066.

I no longer have the 3300. after the through bolt thing, I finally gave up. I now have a Honda with a Viking gear box. It is nice not to worry about temperatures.
