As you know, I'm always happy to assist.
I'm glad I could save you some money.
Wait...what...you don't have the ACT yet?
Ok you need to drill and tap a hole in your plenum to hold the ACT.
Then you need a good SCT tune to utilize the ACT. As the blower temps rise the program will retard the spark timing and add more fuel. To be safe.
Likewise, if the ACT's are cool (like in the winter) the ACT sensor will report back to the EEC-V that all systems are a "go". You get maximum spark timing (well depending on other variables).
The benefit doesn't just stop there. Now you can data log a WOT blast and look at the IAT numbers. IAT on the screen will be the ACT and you'll be looking actual blower discharge temperatures after the intercooler.
You can use something as primitive as Auto Tap too.
