I plan on running it a few more years. Originally purchased JB1 in late 2015 and then upgraded to JB4. The only long term issue in hot weather is the wire harness loom crumbling into little bits over...

Agreed, it's again, that whole Qdot= m-dot * Cp * delta T thing in heat transfer. You're correct, the efficient IC can quickly recover, but the AC condenser is the killer. I like the way GTI Jake has...

I'm just 1.5 hours north in ATX. If you're in stop-and-go like I experience, expect IATs above 150 until you get moving again. Driving 65mph last week and 85F outside, my IAT was still 110-120F....

I'm not familiar with the spacers that you're using, but the Vibrant J spacer with middle sized insert has kept me CEL free with CTS catted since Oct; ~6k miles.

Don't worry about it too much, it's a larger mass that takes on heat in stop-and-go traffic. (Physics: Q=m*Cp*(delta T) thing) I had Magic for a few weeks until a local deal for an IE came along. It...

Or... you might not get a CEL. I realize that I'm using JB4 (w/no reset enabled), but I've never received a CEL with the CTS catted and a Vibrant J. Live on the edge.

Nice job TwoCans, at the end of 3rd 9-13 degree delta; 4th carries the cooling capacity. My 90F log in post#281 was 15 degrees over at the end of 3rd. Seems like it works.
