Air Intake Temperature

Hey guys,

So yesterday I decided to data log and see what my air intake temperature was. I am running a JLT Series 3 cold air intake and a 93 performance tune ( I have a 93 race tune I have yet to try out) from Bama alongside the x4 tuner. At 28 degrees Fahrenheit and going an average of 70mph I saw my air intake temp fluctuate from 26-30 degrees Fahrenheit. After the engine was plenty warm the idle air intake temp went from 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit. I am running a 07 GT/CS with 66k as a daily driver. I was curious if anyone has a method to keep the air intake temp low regardless of outside temp ? I haven't tested it in extremely hot temperatures ( I have a black car) but im sure it might run above ambient and I would like to always see it about 10-15 degrees cooler then ambient. Thank for the help guys.

Then your gonna have to put your stock airbox back on and remove the JLT.

A sealed airbox will keep temps down by not sucking in the hot air from your engine compartment.

Does anyone else feel like the stock airbox is a better route then an after market cold air intake ? The lasting debate ....

Doesn't seem like much of a debate anymore. At least on here, the general consensus seems to be that the stock airbox is best until you get into forced induction applications.

If you're blown, that's when you should really worry about lower iat s. I don't think NA will see a drastic difference.

Is there any data out there to show that the stock is better off then a cai ? If that is the case I will do what is best for the car.

On 3Vs not much. On Coyotes a ridiculous amount.

Besides the fact that Ford did a great job designing the air intake on the new gen mustangs, this plays a huge part in cia choices. Fords design is what helped me make my choice of the K&N Typhoon. Sealed air box with true cold air intake at grill. That and K&N's been doing this awhile. I also picked it because it is a nice piece of under hood jewelry.

Air Intake Temperature

Have the intake fully sealed from the engine bay. In other words make it like the stock intake.


Every day is a joyride.
