That kind of depends on the driving. If you do mostly stop and go/city then the cooler air will be more beneficial.
Thanks! I have been discussing this with Trdtoy (please chime in as PM box is full) and will probably be going this route soon. From my understanding with his box is that he leaves the flapper hole open.Trdtoy offers modified stock airbox. Shoot him a pm and get both power and quiet airbox.
Average IAT's are 10 to 14 degrees above ambient when cruising 75 to 85 MPH with no traffic.What is your IAT over ambient when on the highway?
Thanks for the info. I will look into those things.Install a WAI kit and you can forget all about this. In the meantime, reducing engine bay temperatures should be your M.O.
Coolant bypass mod, lava-wrap the coolant tubes, remove the hood-cowl rubber/plastic strip. Those are just a few simple ways to cut down on engine bay temps for cheap.
warm air intake :haha::crying::haha:^^^ lol. Thanks. Didn't know what a wai was.
I wasn't doubting your temps, I told you mine so you'd see there wasn't much difference even with add ons that are suppose to make things cooler.View attachment 83729
Leesrt, here is a screenshot from my ride into work today. This is at about 20 miles of straight highway doing 70 to 85 with no traffic.
Keep in mind that this is before exiting highway so no stops. Once I sat through a few stop lights my IAT was at 113 degrees. Your temps aren't any better than this?
