Also - folks don't seem to understand that unless you are under power/boost, an aftermarket IC will look basically like a stock IC....

Yup… just like when cruising and pushing 1-3 psi won’t show shit either, yet it’s still commonly referred to as a means of IC performance measurements.

The real test is watching a full WOT pull through the powerband and making sure the intake temp curve stays flat versus drastically peaking near the top.


Also it’s commonly ignored that the sensor reading temps is 6-8 inch away from the head that consistently in the 200+ degree range, so it’s naturally going to transfer the heat… point a heat gun at the top side of the map sensor and watch your iAT reading skyrocket.

You want gnarly come to Phoenix. Highs around 117-118* for the last week.

I would stick with those temperatures too. And thankfully it's a dry heat (low humidity) or it wouldn't be livable. It's barely liveable with low humidity.

Well I didnt listen to Chrismk77 and I tried to get a log with the JB4 and im pretty sure on the second pull below the car went into limp mode. Threw a bunch of codes; had a flashing CEL and EPC light on. I turned the car off and then back on after I took a screen shot of the codes and it drove just fine. It was 90 out and on the second log you can see temps within 10 degrees of ambient, though I didn't get to finish 3rd gear for the pull. Ill have to get a clean pull with and log with the access port tomorrow.

I was going to keep the jb4 for the guages and possibly for a w/m controller in the future, but it just doesn't seem worth the risk for it to keep switching maps automatically. I don't know why it is doing that. I am definatey going to keep it unplugged and I may just sell it on here seeing that I dont have much use for it if it is going to keep acting like this.

Ask George at BMS. He's very helpful.

I'll be installing a majesty IC sometime soon and I was wondering if it would be a good idea to clean out the inside of the IC?

I don't think it's necessary, I didn't do it for my ic, but if you wanted to run compressed air thru it to blow it out I don't see anything wrong with that

Mine was clean. You will want some better clamps unless they now ship with proper which I doubt. Just disconnect existing I/C hoses and cut 2 1.5” long pieces stuff them in the kits bigger silicone hoses with gasket sealer …It also helps to warm hoses in sun before installing for flexibility.. These are the clamps that work the best.

What size clamps does it use?

Looking at the picture in the add it looks like they might include a coupling that can be used as a spacer. I'll have to see when it gets here. I'd prefer not to cut any of the stock parts just in case I need to put it back.

Buy a 2.25" OD silicone coupler that is about 4-6" long and cut in half. One piece for each side.
Fit inside the new tube and then onto the stock intercooler.
I used the clamps that came with mine and they worked fine.

Doesn't even have to be that long. I ordered this when installing mine, cut in half it worked perfectly fine.

You don’t need to buy anything just the 2- 3.25 T clamp that’s it if it comes with coupling’s and you will want to secure with extra hardware aka screws or nuts bolts. It’s clearly marked 325T and if you read summits description it tells you circumference.
that is all
