Sat. I installed a temp sensor in my intercooler return line. (feeding the engine)
I've only driven it 10 miles.. So right now I can't draw any conclusions about temps,fans, ect...

Some preliminary things I do see after a full warm up in the driveway..(in 55 degree ambient temps)

IC fluid temps seem to run a bout 15-20 degrees higher than ambient. (no fans running)

When going into moderate boost (5-10 psi) the IAT2 temps drop to about 15 degrees above the IC temps.


Just interesting stuff...

Nice Idea, do you have a break down on all the parts and piece's that made this cool idea possible. Please keep us posted. Are you running a aftermarket heat exchanger, E-fan, etc., etc.???? Thanks Garrett

"3/8" brass fitting at your local hardware store. ;)   I did drill out the I.D. so as not to be the bottle neck. (The stock restrictive point is the return inlet to the deguass tank) Other than that it's just a EGT probe.  Dorcy.. or Darcy... or D???? well anyway.. it's an old school type of EGT sensor system.

My mods are on my web page. All except for the recently installed H.E. e-fans.
