WOT Air Woes with the air box enclosed
I did some test driving today. I didn't have my super chips connected to the car to check my IAT's; which, in hindsight, I kinda wish I had. Anyway, I guess it really doesn't matter much cuz the car definitely had breathing problems at WOT with the cardboard piece in place and the hood closed. There's just not enough air flowing into that small space behind the left headlight, and truthfully, I don't really want to drill air holes into the front frame rail, or anywhere else for that matter-if I can help it. When I removed the cardboard, the engine really perked up and returned to the performance I'm used to. I did this experiment cuz I was looking for a DIY way to lower IAT temps more quickly at the track. So, I guess what I wanna know now is: how well those 23 dollar (with shipping costs) thermistors work? Are they worth the price for what they're supposed to do? Can anyone chime in on this?
