What tunes do you have on your chip? How much boost are you making? Do you blow black smoke when you stand on it?
If you really think that a makes noticeable difference over say, a 6637 or afe, then you haven't been in the game very long. I have owned ridiculous amounts of turbo'd cars, supercharged, and a handful of turbodiesels. All of them intercooled minus the SC'd car. When you are driving down the road, underhood temps are damn near static temp. If you are 10* over static temp, your running hot. And lets pretend that we didn't
have a gargantuan intercooler mounted to the front of the truck, supplied with 3" aluminum piping, sure... I could see your argument on a cai lowering intake temps.
i'd be tickled to have you show me where my bad advice is, since you must be quite good with these trucks?
