air intake temps

I was wondering if anyone has ever used their flashpaq to check AIT on their trucks? I was curious because mine with a metal k&n always runs about 10 deg. hotter than outside temp if im running 30mph or more. is this normal, good, or bad?

With my RAMHAMMER I've never seen more than a 5 degree difference.

They will run hot if they are metal. I have had 3 metal intakes and the ramhamer was the best. I did not like the high temps with the metal tubes so I went with a airaid system. Down here in south Texas it is HOT. I like my airaid but the ramhammer was the best. I plan to go with a carbon fiber ramhammer next.

I have a home-made pvc intake that gets air from the hole in my SRT-10 hood. Flashpaq AIT sensor readings are 2-4*F above ambient temp at highway speeds.

anyone tried to wrap theirs with a reflective heat shield? Been wondering if it was worth it or not.

Example:

Here is my DA run with RamHammer taken a few months ago. The ambient air temp was 50 degrees.

5point7 hemi,
what did you do that datalog with? my Flashpaq only logs up to 4 thing at a time.

interesting temps, lot of fluctuation; anywhere from 14.4*F above ambient to 23.4*F above ambient. any idea how fast you were going?

since the RamHammer has done so well at the track, I expected AIT temps much closer to ambiemt temp.
