Either way it's clear that any increase in temp is offset by the decrease in resistance, at least on the dyno, which is what I will be testing. That is, if it will translate on the road or not. M&Ms testing was a good start, but I didn't really think it was empirical enough with to many variables between the comparisons.

O-cha, on the "other forum" you mentioned 150deg F.....which seems really low to me. Does a anyone have a measured amount? Im not concerned with the IAT, just the physical compartment temp. The coupler Im making is only good up to 260deg
