Bill,

Which temps are you referring to? I've been datalogging occasionally and the warm weather has made my IATs warmer than before, but that's expected. The datalogging Senad showed in his first post were from just a few days ago and he verified that under just about the same ambient temp, the Evolve intakes kept IATs at about the same as the stock intakes did, maybe slightly higher. But then once under load, the IATs dropped rapidly towards the ambient temp.

Quick update: Been driving around this whole weekend with the intakes and man what a blast! I am addicted to the top end power and the top end noise! It is sooooo lovely the sound! It pulls! Went out to dinner and desert tonight in the meatpacking in the city, and man i was getting thumbs up from everyone, alot of car guys around there with exotics. Popped the hood for some friends too, they were in love with the carbon fiber and attn to detail of the kit.

It might provide extra intake noise, but you would also allow more heat, and would lose vacuum pressure the stock intake makes as a sealed system to get air to flow and respond quickly.

Thanks alot Bill! See Randys post, he gives a good explanation.. The oil temp on the dash is higher then earlier months just from the summer heat.. The intakes won't have no direct correlation to oil temps on the dash, unless the IAT were really high, but thats a long shot, and these intakes maintain stock like IAT's so you are clear from that..

Randy;
The temperature gauge on the dash seems to be indicating higher temps than normal. i had a check emissions light go on and the dealer tried to blame it on the intakes, wanted money to run codes, which they finally did but must have reset something, light never came back on. may take it to an indy shop to check for any codes.
The gauge seems to be well past the 210 mark and heading for the next indicator dot before heading back down-seems to head north under acceleration and then comes back down a little. But never under 210. just wondering if it is because weather in the low '90's, getting a little heatsoak also?

When I come visit my brother in NY we're gonna meet up and you're going to show me around Brooklyn lol. In Brooklyn, I've only ever been to Peter Luger's, Grimaldi's, Fatty Cue, and the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.

And yes, I have been paying closer attention to my oil temps this summer. Typically I never really ever hit 210degF, but I noticed that this summer my temps have been hitting 210degF and sometimes going a little over when I'm driving hard. It cools down relatively quickly though back down to below 210degF once I come to a stop or am hwy cruising.

Bill,
Our posts are just out of sync haha. See what I just posted regarding my observations of the oil temp. Mine have been high, but it's usually still just under 210degF unless I'm driving hard and then it will go a little over.

I actually happened to be doing some datalogging a few weeks ago when the ambient temps here in NorCal were at 96degF. Here is the link to the graph and you can see. My temps did hit as high as about 218degF, but they did cool down and hover between 210-212degF.

datazap.me | randywei | 96degF ambient

Do you have the Evolve-R cable? I can't remember if you got the tune or only have the intakes. If so, you can read error codes using the cable and the Evolve-R software.

Alternatively, you can buy your own cable and check yourself using BMWLogger-2. Like $40 just for the cable and an extra $59 if you want to do some datalogging. Software is free for reading and clearing error codes as long as you have a cable. BMWLogger – Welcome to BimmerSoftware.com

Randy-yes, i have the tune Stage 1 for 91 octane but thinking about changing to the MAFless tune....if it would make a difference. Your oil temps seem to be pretty much in line with mine-maybe mine a little higher.
Thanks for your help!

I'm assuming you have your Evolve-R cable still? If so, hook it up to your car and run the Evolve-R software. There's a Diagnostics option and it will allow you to read our error codes, if any.

Unfortunately, and I tried this today, the Evolve-R cable won't work with BMWLogger-2 for datalogging. Shucks.

For the MAF-less AlphaN tune, it will just affect your throttle response. No added power. I don't have the AlphaN tune, but this is what I am told by others.

What are your ambient temps? And at what RPM are you guys at? If I'm just cruising on the hwy at like 70-80mph (RPMs around 2700-3000) I'm at around 210degF, maybe a little over, when in 96degF ambient temp. If I start accelerating then temps will start rising, but then once I am cruising again at like 70-80mph then the oil temp will drop back to ~210degF.

This past weekend though, weather was at about 86degF and my oil temp never exceeded 210degF I don't think. It hit 210degF, but usually was under.

SoCal does tend to be warmer than NorCal though.
