      About 2 weeks ago I installed the IE IC.. everything was great/ IAT was around 100F in 75F ambient temps, then the hose on the driver side popped off/ EPC light came on ofcourse which I had to drive it for like 15miles with it off until it was placed back on. Ever since then my IAT Temps have been crap... I cant lower than 120-130 while driving in 75-80F ambient. Yes I have checked everything for leaks etc.

      Any thoughts or anyone has dealt with this?? because it makes no sense

      I had a similar problem, but it turned out my MAP sensor was going bad. Everything seems to be better after swapping the maf. It's 60 bucks.

      Do the temps drop when you floor it? I see 115 to 120f during cruise in 85 to 90 degree NYC heat.

      I just replaced the Map Sensor and yes the temps do drop when flooring it and same cursing temps as you as well in Chicago heat. I just feel like it should be lower than 115F-120F when cursing

      I agree, I wanted it lower at cruise, but others have said it's normal. My previous car had a very large front mount. This is my first aftermarket IC that sits between two other heat exchangers.
