    With the stock intake my IAT is anywhere from 2-6 degrees hotter than the the temp sensor for the overhead temp/compass gauge.

    If you have a CAI, the Scangauge, and the temp/compass console what temp differences do you see?

    I'm running the TRD CAI...

    in the cooler months my SG2 tells me that my IAT are about 1-3 degrees above ambient air temps...

    but during the summer it jumps up to 10-15 degrees above ambient air temps when at a dead stop but will drop down to 3-5 degrees above ambient air temps when on the move...I'm in LV...

    Thanks, that is the info I am looking for. From that it appears that with the aftermarket CAI you don't really get lower temps that stock. That is what I expected because of where the IAT sensor is located as well as where air is drawn from. In the CAI kits it sits over the header. The exception being the URD. But, even with the URD CAI your temp diff is only a few degrees. What I don't know is how much fuel/timing change does a few degrees make.

    It would be good if someone chimes in that has a different CAI like K&N where the filter is more exposed to the engine bay.
