    I just needed an excuse to use that picture


    I'd like to see a comparison run with that. I think that once air enters the turbo and gets compressed, its heated up pretty good anyway, whether it started cooler or warmer...

    I guess we'd only ever be able to debate this fully is with someone testing on a car with IC before and after temp gauges...(I actually do want that set up too)

    so we need the MAF IAT sensor, one between the turbo and the IC, and one between the IC and the intake manifold...
    I'll try to have that set up once i get the fmic installed and have more room for temp probes.

    50/50 BOV completely useless with a mostly stock set up?

    Love the way they sound but do they serve any real purpose when I'm running a pretty much stock set up with only a TBE?
