rad fan blowing hot air on intake pipe cooling ideas

Recommended Posts

hi guys

 

anyone had this

after getting it mapped he said it seemed to be running a bit hot and seems to be due to the rad fan blowing hot air onto the intake pipe considering making a shield to deflect the air away

if anyones made anything be good to see

yeah I tried the tape actually made it worse believe it or not

 

we were watching the itb temps when mapping and its just high

 

cant think what else would cause it

What intake temps? Where is the IAT mounted? What boost? What intercooler?

Lots of variables, let us know and we can advise.

I guess it would of been done on throttle body temp reading

 

running 1- 1.1 bar of boost

not sure on the intercooler was on there when I bought it but pretty sure its to do with the fan blowing on the intake pipe that's making it hot

did use gold tape but we removed that and it was 5 degrees cooler ?

The thing is, without knowing the temp, we cant tell you if its high or not?

If you're using the stock IAT, its mounted in the intake manifold and gets affected by heatsoak badly. So if you did a run with tape, waited, then removed it, it may appear lower, but its because the sensor wouldn't have been as heat soaked.

It looks like you're running COP ignition in your picture so its going to be on a standalone ecu; can you post the log?

il get the laptop plugged into it and get some accurate readings

 

yeah it does heat soak really badly its okay when your moving but if your stuck in traffic gets pretty hot

 

yeah im on COP with standalone link g4 so yeah il get a log going and get some data and then get it uploaded

Best option, im happy to take a look.

Id recommend moving the IAT to just infront of the throttle body to the intercooler pipe if it isnt already. 

This will reduce the heatsoak, and provide a more accurate reading.
