air intake/heat shield
Anyone using a heat shield for the intake either homemade or part of a kit?
I have the open cone type and although it's great for taking in alot of air it's to hot, my IAT's are way to high for optimum power,90* while moving at highway speeds, and 130*140* idle and slow moving ,and thats 60*ambient air temp.
So it's just soaking to much hot air from the engine and want to get those numbers down.
Iv had it tuned using SCT X-cal2 with wideband o2 datalogging and I now can do it so im going to try different intake setups and see whats best.
Interested to see what you guys might have. Thanks, Rob
Oh and i got the lean cond't corrected and now have a nice 12.8 A/F ratio.
