Intakes And Intake Temps

Hello everyone. Im searching for some of you guys to help me out here. What Im trying to do is help everyone out here because it seems like a good bit of the SVT owners would LOVE to go FI, but dont want to spend the cash, or have another reason they reamain N/A. And I know a lot of you guys are running short ram intakes (and thats what im mostly interested in, however you CAI guy's are welcome to post some info as well). What I am interested in is those of you who have data logged any information regarding intake temps (ie: temp when idle, and temp during driving). Ok, so here's the list of SRI setups.

Stock


AEM


K&N


PiperCross


Steeda


Custom!


So heres the lay out I would like you guys to post the information:

Type: (if your using a custom setup, please list type of materials used)
Idle Temp Average:
Driving Temp Average:

I'll start off

Type: AEM SRI
Idle Temp Average: 90deg
Driving Temp Average: 110deg

(if I remeber corectly...I'll do another datalog soon, and update if its wrong)

Well I just want to say thank you in advance for any help along the way.


-Matt

I'll log today and get back to you, I also have an AEM SRI. I think the Pipercross and FocusSport Cool-Flo would be the winners in this comparo, but we'll see


AEM SRI
Ambient temp @ time of test 68*F
Low Road Temp 80*F (driving, clear air in front)
High Road Temp 104*F (at light for approx 3min)
High Overall Temp 118*F (after trip, idling for 2 mins)
Avg. road temp was in the mid 80's

I drove normally, was about a 6 mile trip local roads and 50 mph byway but I probably went 60...
Comments: 1. I was glad that once I got some clear air, my IAT was only 12* above ambient
2. Sitting for a short while causes underhood temps to climb quickly
3. It takes longer for the air temp. to return to cool than it does to get hot

If you go on Focaljet and do a search of the Pipercross Viper you'll find a couple of old posts from McNews where they took intake temps using the Viper and I think a couple other intakes.
It may of been for a standard Ztec engine though but the differences should't be that much.

yea, Im on fj as well (1svt4u2c is my name over there) I just decided to come here first...no real reason, just havent really posted much over here, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Anyway, back on topic, Also I was wondering if anyone did any header wrap around the intake, and had any drop in temp vs just the reg pipe. I'm gonna ask one of my buddies who wrapped his header on his SVT to see if he has any left, so I can try to wrap my AEM. Anyway, thanks again guys!

It will also be useful to note the ambient temperature. Miami can get quite hot =)

Also, the idle temp should be higher because there is no air flowing under the hood. Did you take that reading right when you turned on the car?

I like the project, but I think you should set up a standard set of running conditions to take out as many variables as possible.

I had my custom SRI wrapped , and it was considerably cooler to the touch after long drives. Although the location of the filter on it doesnt seem like an ideal spot. I would bet the Pipercross would yield the lowest AIT's.
Heres a pic


Now I have an AEM CAI, wrapped as well and it doesnt get hot anywhere, also dont feel that boggy feeling that I had with my SRI after driving around for a bit.

I did something approximating this in my '92 Bronco...I saw about a 10* drop in my intake temps with nicer summertime driveability.

Unfortunately, I totalled it a month later

Great info! And for the sitting at idle for a short period of time, something to help get the air moving is those rubber pieces just below where the windshield wipers are, above the firewall area.....yea, just remove those, I just noticed that in every pic no one has removed them. I did, and noticed a bit of a difference, time to hook up the SCT and check it out, i'll be back later with what I found.
