Re: Powerwire

i have the Powerwire from AIR RAM. ALso intake and Exhaust. The best way to describe it is this: you know on a cool morning you know about 50 degrees or so, your Jeep just feels spunky like it has a bit extra pop, well it feels like that all the time with the P/W. also on my 4.7 with just intake, exh, and PW, i also noticed a slight increease at idle. noticed this because ever since I did the intake it seems like when its good and warm the idle is a tad low. like say 450 RPM. with the PW it never nelow say 550, which is much smoother.

then i got the SC, I have the 91 tune. with the PW, I have mixed results. i had a weird experience when i was in the middle of flooring it, and had to let off real quick due to POPO alert. and one other time like that. where I didnt eh unexpected.
so for now I have just the SC 91 tune running and took off the PW.

one last thing. if you research the PW, it may work better in warm weather and in the cold weather is less noticable.

my plan is I need the 4.7 lugging trans update done so i need to remove my tune. once thats done I'll probably need a new S/C file, hopefully in stock, then load 91 tune back in. would then like to datalog and go to Bandimere for some testing in the fall.

Re: Powerwire

Ahh I must have misread that. No worries, I'll try contacting the dude from AirRam to see if he has anymore kicking around.

Re: Powerwire

i did say i have taken it off for now. but its a cool thing so I'm going to hang on to it.

im pretty sure AIR RAM has more in stock.

you could try a wanted ad, maybe someone else wants to get rid of theirs.

Re: Powerwire

Very true. Although I'm a bit impatient when it comes to Jeep mods, so will probably ending up going straight to the source and order one up today

Re: Powerwire

i get a understanding of how this works: "lower" intake temps means the ecu adds fuel creating more power.

what i dont get is: if your not actually bringing in that temperature of air and you add fuel, how do you run 14.7 a/f and get better power and mileage? wouldnt you be running rich?

Re: Powerwire

Is this the resistor that fools PCM that the air is cooler than it actually is via IAT? I plan to do something like that, but not for $60!

Re: Powerwire

I have one, I cant tell that it did/does anything. Is there anyway to test this? I have a Bwoody intake reducing intake temps already. I heard (not sure if its true) that with my setup the computer might not use the sensor at all because it is too far off (cold). Some have noticed lower engine RPM on idle and such. Isn't it a resistor? Can I test it?

I tested mine with the DashHawk...It shows about 10degrees cooler!

Re: Powerwire

Does anyone know if the PW will interfere with or trip up the Diablo canned tunes or CMR tunes?
