Just fitted BA XR8 cold air intake
Just fitted an SS inductions CAI to my XR8. Jeeez does the induction roar sound great. That plus quads =
Any way I've only done about 30 ks since doing it, and it seems to be running a bit hotter. before now, it's NEVER moved from a 1/3 of the way between 1/4 and 1/2 on the temp gauge. Now it seems to be constantly moving between 1/2 and 2/3, between the 1/4 and 1/2 mark (gee, that's a bit confusing).
I'm putting it down to one of two things. 1) the aluminium air deflectors are blocking too much of the radiator, or 2) the engines running a bit lean while the computer is adjusting to the extra air flow.
Any one got any thoughts on the matter? The aluminium deflectors concern me quite a bit, but looking at them, they do seem to be playing a big part in the induction....
