Default FWI Results

Ok, got a chance to test out the FWI today. It was hot and the car read 91 F. Cruising at about 40-50 the IAT temp read about 102-104 so about 13 over ambient. At 72-75 the IAT read 95 so 4 over ambient. With the SLP CAI I was seeing about 120 IAT with ambient of mid 80'*....

Thats the good part, here is the great part. Highest KR spike I saw was 1.5 where before I was getting 4 to 5 KR and the car felt real strong up top. If I get 1-2 KR on a hot day i'm thinking the normal cooler days should lower it even more. I'll have to grab some more data later.

3.2 pulley back on the car makes it feel like a monster again....the 3.4 felt to slow to me. Also the whine has skyrocketed from the intake. The car reallys screams now and I'm loving it.

FWI sounds tempting, but I am afraid of sucking in water.

3.5 tubing with a 4" patch from the TB over the hose.

Those are some pretty good numbers there Todd, I wonder still if just moving the IAT sensor further away would give you even lower temps. I'm betting that with the FWI you ARE actually pulling darn close to ambiant temps just the engine bay and TB are hot and warming the tube and sensor giving you slightly higher temps readings.

So you got the 3.2 on again you devil! YGPM

I'm thinking of surrounding the tubing with heat shielding like the reflective wrap SB2K uses. That should help some I think.
