So in my quest in experimenting with the new INTENSE PCM, I swapped back to the 3.3" SC pulley from the 3.2".
I had installed the 3.2" when I installed the new PCM and noticed that whenever I shut off the car, even after a slow and easy run, the fans would
come on for a couple of minutes. When running, the engine temp was about 10*F cooler than before. About 175* F. OK so no big deal. I liked that.
So tonight I re-installed the 3.3" and went out for a performance run to check the torque management.
The car seemed to have just as much power even though the boost was slightly lower. OK, you might expect that because I may have been getting some knock retard.
But, now the car runs about 10* warmer (185*F) and when I shut off the engine after the 0-110 mph runs, the cooling fans did not
Good news though. No torque management. 1-2 at 5900, then 2-3 at 5900 without hesitation and kept on pulling.
But the temperature has me baffled.
One thing to bear in mind. It only went through a couple of on/off cycles, so the PCM learning may not be complete yet.
