I read and re-read the results, I just didn't post anything. I am planning on supercharging, specifically the ECS Novi kit. I live in Vegas where ambient is 111 this weekend! I seen IAT's in traffic of 125 un-boosted. I see timing of only 18 at WOT :/ I am not surprised at the results of the Vortech tube. The air once compressed is getting heated then cooled in intercooler so pull location should not make much difference. Maybe if from outside engine bay... Interesting how the elbow killed boost pressure. Air doesn't like corners.

I still don't understand how the PD blowers are seeing such low IAT's. Got me considering one of them. I just hate all the plumbing for heat exchanger and added water weight, PD blower, etc.

Thanks for the research!!!

I appreciate the results...confirms what I noticed driving. My car actually builds boost faster (or at least I'm seeing more 1-2 psi more boost in first gear and a 0.2psi gain in 2nd on) with the vortech intake elbow off running ECS style. I'm keeping it this way, it gives me a dual catch can location also (behind headlight). I'm honestly going to spray it more than likely this summer so IAT's will fall drastically regardless of where it is. LOL
Just to car with 3.70s rips through first so fast I never saw more than 5.x I can see 7 if its hooked.
