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.
