Default CAI IAT upgrade

OK I run that big E-1009 k&n but I wasn't totally happy with acceleration;thought I should be getting more. After reading the thresds here I decided to extend the wire on my IAT so it sits inside the filter to read colder air. Wasn't enough room to do it like you guys do it on the Xtreme k&n so i went a lil futher and relocated my IAT to the very front of the filter where the big rubber k&n logo is. I placed a hole and got a tight fit and I sealed it with hi temp red gasket maker. I then sealed the holes on the pipe with that metal filler that'* like playdough and I feel the xtra power. Am i burning more fuel now since it'* reading colder? So what if i am, i like the power

No fuel change. The PCM keeps your AFR constant. You gained a couple degrees of timing.

You really feel a difference if you relocate?

Alot will depend on whether you run a heatshield or CAI, but yes, it'* possible.

Q: If your not getting KR and you have high temps won't you still get full timing anyways?

No, the timing advance is partially based on the temp of the incoming air read by the IAT.

Which is why anytime my engine temps are over 200.....My car royally sucks for performance......The engine bay get'* so hot that it just soaks into everything, and the CAI turns into a HAI (Hot Air Intake)

You get 200* temps when your car is moving? I think you need to build a better heat shield.

Running a 195 t stat stock, most would see 200 degree temps.

I don't unless I have to stop at a stop light for a long time. Then after about a mile of driving again they go back down below 200.
