Unhappy Sorry! Another delay in getting MAF flow/intake air temp comparisons

Sorry all! There will be another delay in getting the comparison of actual MAF and intake air temp. between the Dinan CAI and the AA CAI. I can't get back up to get my beast in Columbus until Friday. Hopefully, Tony & I will be able to get together awhile for the weekend and hook up my Auterra to our beasts to get the data and be able to post graphs (I'll at least be able to post numbers) at that time.

Anyone care to speculate in advance what if any the differences will be? Theoretically, Tony's intake air temp should read lower because of the Dinan upgrade moving the temp. sensor to the front bumper. Anyone want to guess about mass air flow differences between the two CAI's?

I'll take a just plain wild Guess.

I think they will be fairly close to each other.

Dinan's should be a little lower than stock because of the Moved sensor.

And the AA CAI should be a litttle lower than stock because of an appearant larger quantity of cooler air ramming through the system.

So at a totally un backed up, uneducated, straight out Guess, I think they will be close to even. But both slightly better than stock.

I have Zero supporting data.
