Default got some new mods installed but no pics

I worked all day to get an aeroforce gauge put in. I put it basically the same place everybody else put theres. in the top left vent on the drivers side, anybody else notice the nasty reflection at night off of the drivers door window? other then that, i love it. It fits perfectly and matches the red interior lights at night.

I also added a FWI and basically was wondering what intake temp air are you guys getting? I am expecting maybe 8-10 above the outside air. am i crazy for thinking that? what should i expect? thanks

I would expect ambient with a FWI.

I got ambient + 2 with just a Rice Pipe.

Sounds like a good deal, where did you finally tap power for the aeroforce? Is the fwi from Intense?

If your IAT is up near the TB your sensor could be getting heatsoak. I sort of custom made my FWI and I relocated my IAT into the back of the filter. I'm reading ambient.

yeah i had a power wire tapped in from my subs that i dont have in my car anymore, i wanna say that it was tapped in at the remote wire or something. But anyways, it works. yeah the FWI is from intense and my IAT is near the throttle body. so maybe thats why i see it a little warmer then it actually is

Is there a benefit to having the IAT sensor closer to the filter and reading cooler temps? You'll love the Aeroforce, looking forward to seeing your install at the meet this Saturday. I'm starting to think I am the only one with the Aeroforce mounted in the center vents as opposed to the driver side ones.
