My home made works, short term.

I'm up at 70 Mile House, British Columbia, in Canada. That's about 100 km (60 miles) NNW of Kamloops, BC. It's still pretty cold up here; epecially at our elevation of 3000 ft or so. It's still below 32f at night and hovers around 50f during the day.
I'd kind o' like to build a compact system to put in the back of my pick-up, but I have a few other projects (car builds) on the go, and they need finishing.
Thanks again everyone.

One ?, why is the air mix valve (hole and tape) so far from the intake of the motor?

I get a better mix with my "ductape/orface" (lol) that far away from the intake. But the main reason I mix at that distance is to cool the gasses with ambient air before the last filter, so that more condensate can separate out of the gas and collect in the final filter can. If I mix too close to the intake, I get condensate running into the intake.

Also, I've heard of some hacking of ICUs to change timing... may have been an old post on this forum, can't recall.

Other than tapping in to the ecm, I was thinking that relocating the crankshaft sensor a few degrees might work. That's the only hack I can think of doing.
It would be nice to have a pic of something like the condensate trap in the hopper.
I'll do some searching.

As the water drops build up on the lid, they drip down into the gutter and on into the collector. The valve stays closed during operation to prevent an air leak. Some older units would reintroduce the moisture right before the char bed for the extra H and CO, but at a rate that would not lower hearth temp.

I think I would have to redesign my top door for the condensate to roll into the gutter. I will be building a compact, mobile, and smarter looking system this summer. I will incorporate the condensate catch.
