Hot intake Air
We have been discussing this AEM intake and other open eliment setup and have been saying that its no biggie if we injest hot air cause the FMIC takes care of it.
Here are the things we need to think about:
We know what the turbo heats up the air, but does it multiply it by a factor of 1 or does it really multiply it by 2 etc?
Ex:temp entering the turbo is say 10, coming out the turbo is 50. If temp is raised to 20 entering the turbo, does it come out at 60 or maybe 100?
Now, regardless of what the the turbo is doing, im pretty sure that the hotter the air entering the turbo, the hotter it will come out.
Now for the FMIC. Lets say it drops temps by 25%. YOu have 100 degrees entering in, out comes 75 Deg. Now if you increase the temp to say 120 cause you had hotter air entering the intake, you will have air thats hotter than 100 degrees entering your throttle body.
It all comes down to this, the hotter the air entering your filter, the hotter the air will be entering your throttle body.
If you want to see how the temp varies with intake temps, you will have to read teh temp at the turbo discharge.
