Have the CVF... having humidity in the 80s and 90s and temps the same. Glad to have it. No issues.

I also have this and even when I'm running hard it does not surpass 226 degrees. I am generally hovering at 212/216 degrees even at these 90 degrees outside temps

I've heard different answers on the following, but sounds like all of you may be able to answer: With exchanging the stock IC for an after-market IC, is there a requirement to reprogram/re-flash the ECU or can one continue with stock ECU programming?
Not tuning will still give you cooler air temperatures but tuning it will allow you to bump up the juice for some extra power safer.

didn’t you also pull the I/C shutters?
have you been monitoring intake temps?
Yes I have done this simple mod. It does help at speed to keep temps as low as possible. But after sitting at a light the IC can heat soak some. So cool downs are a bit faster with the open airflow and no restrictions. I can also say, no rocks have flown in past the grill to cause any damage to the IC. So this mod seems like a big plus for very hot environments.

Thanks for the tuning answers. Has anyone looked at the Mishimoto or the Wagner Tuning IC’s? If so, any pros or cons?

For those of you in Florida, two questions:

1. Does this affect AC temps at all?
2. What does this do to your warranty? I want the option of a winch and IC relocation is the only real alternative.

I don’t have an FMIC. But never heard of anyone down here complaining of the AC not working up to top efficiency since adding one.

I bought the Wagner after reviewing a bunch of IC’s. It’s been sitting in my garage for a year, but looks really nice. Win suggested it (Goose)

I'm in Arizona. It was 115 today in Tucson. I have the ADD Intercooler. No air conditioning issues whatsoever. IMO, any warranty issues depends on the dealer. If that particular dealer is cool with simple add on stuff "shouldn't be an issue".
