Yes it is he's new I told him about the PM function.Plus it's a little off topic doncha think?
seems that way doesn't it?Well , If you drive 50 miles one way to work and its 95 degrees outside and the engine runs at 190 and just general heat from the engine it would seem that the CAI tube up to the throttle body would heat up as well to temps above the outside air.
Good to know thanks for the info. It would stand to reason that moving air would not have the time to absorb any heat. Thinks for waking up my brain :tongue:seems that way doesn't it?
All I'll say is this. This past march I witnessed a '11 Mustang GT hit 170mph in the standing mile. With a stock air box. Engine running "normal" temps, but with ALL front grill/fascia/whatever openings blocked off. Completely. Ran the same with the stock CAI airbox/tube as with name brand monkey CAI kits. Once you capture the grandeur of the whole scenario, it makes you take a step back and realize how silly it is to be monkeying with truly utterly silly things.
Oh and I've actually datalogged the air temps straight from the PCMs Direct-Memory-Reads. Guess what? Once you actually start moving at a decent speed, the temps do indeed stabilize to ambient temps. Testing reveals all.
Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't the non-LSC have the two piece aluminum drive shaft, not the single piece?Wow thats nice. Why did they go from the aluminum driveshaft to the cast iron? I mean it's definitely stronger but myself I would have left the lighter aluminum piece in there..... Oh yeah and it's a 2 piece...
