Finished up my AIT temp mod.

I installed a ProSport dual read out AIT gauge. I installed one sensor after the blower and just prior to the bypass valve. The other sensor is inside the #8 intake manifold runner. With this gauge I can monitor the air temps both pre and post boost inside the charge pipe before the throttle body, than get another reading inside the intake manifold post water/meth to see how effective the w/m is actually cooling the air charge prior to going into the cylinder. I really didn't have a chance to test it today being Easter and all, besides the neighborhood was full kids and folks enjoying their time outside. Once hooked up without the truck running both the gauges read within a degree or two of one another. I then fired up the truck for a bit to see how the gauge worked and I was fairly impressed. The outside air temp was in the very low 70's. The first sensor in the charge tube read high 80's to low 90's and the second sensor in the intake manifold read in the low 80's. Now these temps are what I saw at an idle and then I shut her down. I did go back out about 20 min later to move the truck inside and upon start up both the charge tube and intake temps were slightly over 100. Proably from heat soak. I revved and held it to about 1500 rpm and watched as the intake temps dropped faster than the charge tube temps did. Can't wait to see how the temps react during normal driving...and then it on to boost.

the aftercoolers work extremely well with the meth even better! but wait just thinking do you run an aftercooler or did you ditch it.

Excellent job! I'm crazy about monitoring stuff......

Ditched it all. Its just a straight shot from the blower to the throttle body. Besides the only time I'm in boost is for about 11 seconds at a time.

yeah i guess but that boost pressure it compressed and hot maybe some testing in future with and without aftercooler there has to be a big diff.

Thanks. Plus its an eyes on mod. I use to have just a green LED light that came on whenever the w/m pump turn on. However just because the light turned on (plus it was hard to see in bright light) doesn't mean that I would't have a plugged nozzle or two. Plugged nozzles = BAAAD things under boost. Watching the air temps in the intake manifold will assure me that my w/m system is in perfect working order. Another plus is it will help me judge as to when to activate the w/m and how much I should ramp it during boost.

Before going to the track or any kind of boost testing. Always tested and adjusted the w/m with the nozzle out, spraying into a bucket.

I just drove to the DMV to renew my lic tabs. Overhead reads its 40* out which it is, the intake charge tube reads in the low-mid 70's and inside the intake manifold reads in the high 90's-low 100's. Now those temps were at driving and while it was shut off and parked in the lot for 10 min or so, when I came back out and started it both my AIT temp sensors read in the low 100's. Then after I got home and let it sit outside with the engine off for a good 20 min the charge tube read 78 and the manifold read 128. Now to further check the accuracy of the temp sensors I'm going to read the charge tube temp with a digital oral themometer and see how that temp compares to the AIT sensor temp.
