Guess I should of explained IAT in my terms as I have mine mounted in the IC pipe near the TB so all I would have to do is mount another just after the turbo and figure a way to read the data...

I agree that it is hard to get real world data as each will have to be retuned. Just throwing a FMIC on and only tuning it for the MAF readings is useless so a complete retune is required to get the best gains out of each IC which ten throws a completely different variable into the equation. :|

Ron we will have to get together on a weekend and try this once 1 of us comes up with the $$$ to pay for it haha
