    Injen intercooler

    Did some searching here first but couldn't find anything really.

    Seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on the Injen intercooler.

    Anyone running the Injen intercooler and if so what kind of ait2 number/temp drops are you seeing?

    These 2nd gen 3.5 EcoBoost run rediculously hot
    This pic is after about 25 minutes of driving and just a couple WOT's in 68 deg weather.

    Imagine how hot the air is coming out of the turbahs.

    My Mazdaspeed temps at the end of a 4th gear pull are upwards of 170...and I hate it. (28psi and a mediocre topmount intercooler)

    Yeah these 2nd gens are nuts for heat, my 2017 2.7 was nothing even close to these temps even after doing multiple WOT's back to back, **** even my old 2013 3.5 wasn't like this.

    This sucker heat soaks literally in minutes, can't even imagine what it's going to be like in summer when it's 105 deg out, especially Towing the travel trailer through the west coast mountains

    With the stock tune, there should be no harm. There are tables that will reduce ignition timing as air temps increase as well as injecting more fuel to help cool the cylinders. All to reduce the likeliness of knock.

    Definitely, I'm not worried about harm I'm wanting to reduce heat soak and the significant power reduction from it.

    Even custom Tunes, as long as you have a good tuner, will have the PCM reduce everything the same as stock tune to avoid issues when heat soak sets in.

    Not a whole lot of real-world reviews on the interweb for our trucks and the Injen at least

    I haven't seen a lot about the Injen, but in general it has always seemed like they make decent stuff.

    You definitely can't go wrong with a FR, a Wagner, or a Garrett. The Levels is nice too but no telling how long it will take to ship.

    Don't count out Mishimoto either. I run one on my 17 3.5 over here in AZ. Yesterday was almost 100° .....my IAT1 was around 110° my post CAC was 109°ish and IAT2 stayed in the very low 120° range, this was normal cruising and an occasional romp to pass people. Fit and finish is top notch and it has an EXACT OEM fit. Took about an hour to install by myself and yes, I have my active grill shutterts pulled out in that area

    Nice. That is also one I am considering, I can get a hell of a deal for the Injen to my door though.
    Do you have a rough idea or any data on what the temp difference is with it and before you had it by chance?

    The main reason I would get the Mishimoto over the Injen would be because you can get it in black, I prefer black instead of shiny aluminum.
    I'm not a fan at all how they all put their name on the front of it, most companies that is.

    The Wagner is all black with no words .

    I think it is one of the most expensive new though.
