Re: Yup, Mopar 3.6 CAI is here ;)
So far in 90F weather I see only about 10F difference in IAT between the stock tube and one that has the furnaces and resonators removed. Both run 15-25F above OAT with engine coolant at 203F. Major differece with the clean tube is that you can watch the IAT drop 10F or more on a single 0-45, stock tube is much slower.
Major influence is the sheer length in a hot engine bay particularly under 50 MPH cruise when the flow is low.
To really be effective we are going to have to lower the coolant temp to 185F-190F but there is no aftermarket 180 or 185 thermostat for the 3.6 that I am aware of. Stant does not make one. Does anyone here have a source ?
ps reading the FSM sounds like running at 185 will not upset the computer.
