Seeing how there's no sensor after the TMIC to read, how is OS supposed to help?

You know what I am getting a AEM IAT sensor and bung installed on my ride some time this week. It will be post inter cooler so I can tune using SD. I just might do a few logs stock with out a splitter then pick me up a spiliter from SS and find out if it works.

Then we will see if any of their claims hold water......


BTW SS this is something you all should have done from the start. Then provide us with the evidence... Not doing so sounds a little fishy and also lazy....


Remember kids, the burden of proof lies with those making the claim....

The only ways to prove whether this works, would be to put'er in a wind tunnel with a clear hood and watch where the smoke goes, or to install multiple RTD's placed along the top and bottom of the IC and monitor temps at varying conditions.

Having a buddy in the trunk of the car in front of you letting loose a few cans of spray paint might work, too. The more color on more of the intercooler, the better!

What are you smoking? Can I have some?

The OTHER way to prove this works to to see if there is any type of drop in IC temps under WOT throttle from before it is installed.... A very quick before and after comparison will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt. This "mod" only takes a few seconds to install so there should be no time difference for heat up or cool down due to the ambient air temps. If this product does not in fact cool down the post TMIC charge air more than the stock setup then it's only purpose is engine bay dress up. As here is a quick blurb from there web site about what they claim this product does:

The improvements seen make this a perfect upgrade, even for a car with a factory intercooler and hood scoop.
Which means I had better see lower TMIC temps after I install this product. I will also take a video and post up the logs once I get around to doing this. Might be about a week or so as I need to install my AEM IAT sensor that I have sitting in a box. Right now I in the middle of a heat war with my engine bay, I just got done wrapping my DP, turbo blanket on the turbo, DEI gold tape all over the TMIC, and I even had the fins of my TMIC coated with CerakoteTM Heat Dissipation Coating. So I really honestly do hope that this helps out with cooling as well.

Also just as an aside to Subtle Solutions, if this product does not work as advertised I will be expecting my money back, no if, and or buts. You have made a claim and I fully expect this product to back those claims up.
