Any pictures?
With stock,ets and pw I'm seeing almost 50 degrees rise in one third gear pull.
Yeah, I just looked at a few more 3rd gear logs and the longest pull showed the +58 degree change, the other pulls showed from +20 to +44 degree changes.

I know that but I'll bet his MAF tune had the MAF with IAT pre-intercooler and I thought he was switching to SD so I figured that the IAT got relocated post IC. It just seems odd that there would be no temp change at all on a pull!

Do you guys think it's their housings? They make good power and my Dom 3.5XTR is making lots of power with my ETS TMIC!

I've never seen any intercooler only show 10 degree change. I have to seriously doubt the data you guys are getting. You guys must be using either slow response temp sensors or have poor placement.
I know I've got mine in a good place now right in the throttle body air path. I even wrapped a thermal sleeve around the IAT sensor and plug just so it doesn't pick up heat soak off the engine. I know the IC may heat soak when sitting still but at least the sensor won't be getting heat soaked before the IC does. I have not run any logs after wrapping the IAT with the sleeve.
