Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

I also used an analog thermometer to check the air temp on both sides of my cooling thing. It was the same on both sides. I tried to use the laser, but I don't know if I'm getting an accurate reading -like is the surface supposed to be hot? Does it normally get warm? Etc...

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

Here are some rough/unscientific numbers I've collected. I tried to get the temp as SOON as I stopped. If I waited even two minutes, the temp rose drastically -at got as hot as 197'.
I have an OBD11 transmitter coming (errr!!! Not until the last of August!! Are they walking it here?!!) that will allow me to collect some realtime data.
The numbers are only with my TRD (thermal recalibration device) attached. It DOES seem to work...

Thermal Dynamic Shield test results

These readings were primarily taken on my to and from work.
My drive to work is typically the coolest part of the day.
My drive home is most often the hottest time of the day.

What you really need is th wifi dongle for your torque app. That way you can measure your IAT's more accurately and on the fly.

The one I ordered has bluetooth.... It'll send real-time data to my iPhone. Torque is only for android (unless it's changed in the past week). There's a "Torque" app on iTunes, but it's not the same...

I'd like to move the IAT sensor to where the CAI filter is! It's doable for like $30.

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

When you know how to use something (apple was the 1st smattphome),and it's easy, and you get used to it, you're hooked. That's why I still use an iPhone -for now.

True bro. Ive used both and its not really all that different. Just think the apple UI is a little more cluttered

It's actually $29.95
AirRam - Cold Air Induction System

It's better than crimp-caps and better than soldering (both of which will degrade the signal). It doesn't change the signal going to the PCM...

Re: Cooling the Engine Compartment

If you're concerned about under the hood temps, you should just order the Paramedic hood and call it a day. Vented for extra circulation of the hot air just under the hood, and will especially cool it down when driving. Or at least that's my simplistic plebeian logic.
