|scooters4x4 6.0||Good ol Apple doing all the thinking for us again....|

So ran the truck today. I got the IR gun used a sharpy to make dots on;the drivers side of the intake, on the egr cooler, on the oil filter housing, and on the side of the radiator to indicate where to aim the gun. I warmed the truck drove it about 10 miles pulled over and grabbed the IR gun and logged my temperatures in Apple note. After traveling 18.8 miles I pulled over and repeated the process with the IR gun. Well the engineers at Apple seem to think that i am too dumb to enter data in to Apple note and it changed my data to make the numbers sequential 136,137,138, etc. so I had to adjust fire as my baseline data was now invalid.
I had some screenshots of the ambient temperature displayed on my dash and I had been watching the OBDII air temp and the IAT2 temp via forscan. So I rolled with this data.
So run one with the egr in place;
Ambient displayed temperature was 58-61 F
OBDII air temp was 60-69 degrees.
IAT2 temp was 87-99F
Parked the truck for a while and then replaced the egr with the eBay spool. Afterwards repeated my run. It was slightly warmer out so the data varied slightly and there was still heat in the motor trans, etc..
Second run with spool in place;
Ambient displayed temp was now 69F
OBDII air temp was 70-82F
IAT2 temp was 94-102 during this run.
In all fairness I did NOT watch the data as closely during the second run. These runs were at a displayed 69mph in the 70 zones and a displayed 60mph in the 55mph zones. These were fairly low boost runs probably average 7-12. Under high boost conditions maybe the outcome would be different.
I have not really thought too extensively about this data; what it means or it’s validity. While driving I was thinking that the spool had led to a greater IAT2:OBDII air temp delta, but after writing down the numbers and reviewing them it appears that the spool has decreased that delta. By no means is this scientific and there are probably a whole lot of details I am missing. I will think about it further and post back my thoughts, but this is what I have so far. I would prefer to have data logged the data but I am not that savvy with the tuner or the monitors yet.

|Kunkel3269||No problem! I was clueless on this as well. A lot of great information on this forum. I will keep posting updates as time goes on as well. Hopefully they are good updates and not bad! LOL|

|Kunkel3269||Just took my truck on a little over 400 mile trip. Ran great. Kept an eye on all my fluid levels and temps. Never went over 9 degree delta going over 80 on I-20. No fluid loss anywhere. Fuel milage looked great running on gearhead 8K tow tune. On the way back today had a 60 MPH cross wind for about 120 miles. Never went over 8-9 degrees. I’m happy with it so far.|

Okay, 3rd attempt at responding I seem to be having issues today.
I had my narrow view glasses on earlier and forgot there are places that test for emissions, so far I am lucky where I am.
This now does make total sense and is the best alternative.

I bought the one ton as its GVW dictated that I did NOT have to smog it, well the law changed about 10 years ago and now I have to smog it. I would have preferred a full delete, but the shop that did my work would not do it so I am where I am. I am also uncertain it will pass with a full delete so I want the option to reverse the delete and use the plug. I am also uncertain if they will change the laws and start sniffing for more than they currently sniff for which would require me to “reverse” my “delete”.
