Well this Rx Chiller has been the bane of my existence. Ever since it was installed it has been nothing but issues. Sure it works great, cooling my IAT temps down to 56-60 degrees. However since it makes the IAT temps inside the intake tube so cold and this Texas heat is 90-100 degrees everyday all day, it creates condensation on the MAF sensor. So far I've had the $80 MAF sensor go out twice now. The first time was on the way back to Texas from the shop down in Florida. The sensor went out 100 miles south of Tallahassee leaving me stranded there for two days until the local dealership express shipped in a new sensor. For the rest of the drive (11-12 hours) I drove without the AC in fear that it might go out again.

Since I've been back to my house in Houston, I've been running the AC a little bit, since the temps have been in the high 90's and my car sits out in the hot sun at work, making cabin temps well over 100 degrees. Well the MAF sensor went out again last week and as I guessed, when I pulled the MAF sensor out it was completely soaked. So for the past week I've been driving without any AC. Lucky for me work is only a 15 min drive from my house. However today I had to go to the doctor after work and I sat in my car for 45 mins without the AC. Here's a nice pic of my shirt lol.

Tracy just sent me a valve that is supposed to help regulate the IAT temps, but I have no idea when I'm actually going to have time to install it.

Hopefully this works, or I'm going to be tempted to rip out this chiller.

I'm fairly confident that Tracy and I can get this bugger figured out though. The Chiller is doing it's job, too well. LOL

Thanks guys, tbh I didn't know I was selected for COTW until mlee PM'd me just now, work has been incredibly busy. I got home from work today with just enough time to scarf down food and watch my Bears take on the Cowboys, and I LIVE in TEXAS, try being a Bears fan in the lonestar state tonight! I've been typing this response for the past 45 minutes, the Bears keep forcing turnovers on Romo and it's distracting me...

Everything is sorted, thank God. The MAF sensor going out was a direct result from condensation building up from the chiller making temps as cold as 55 degrees, when outside temps were 95-100. Tracy at Rx sent me a valve to regulate how much cold air is sent in. So far (past three weeks) there has been no issue. I've pulled the sensor out a couple times a week to check for any possible condensation and there is non. So it looks like everything is good.

Not my final numbers. I dynoed with the OD pulley, however at around 8 psi of boost the fuel pump fails to keep up. I'm now on the stock pulley making right around 6-7 psi of boost at peak and it feels really good. The weather in Texas is finally getting cool so I'm going to make some runs soon. My goal is to beat V6owners 13.1 time
