Was wondering if anyone out there with a torque app or something similar would mind telling me what their IAT's run? My 2020 n line seems to run hot but I am unsure. I usually see 30 to 35 over ambient when cruising. Up to 40 plus when ran hard or sitting. For example, today the air temp was reading 59. My IAT was around 95 cruising, at some points it was over 100. Lowes I saw was a out 91 briefly. Thinking maybe I have a bad intercooler?

Sounds pretty normal for a stock IC. Going to an upgraded unit can drop those temps by ~ 10 to 15 degrees or more depending upon the unit you get.

The stock IC heat soaks easily and when idling the IC doesn't cool the air because you're not moving. I have Tork Motorsports direct replacement IC and just went for a drive and cruising around it was 15 over ambient, 9 over on a little pull and 25 over after about 5 min of idling.

Hmm, may need to get a tork IC. Thanks for the info guys. I have been messing around with the torque lite app, and my best 0-60 time has been 6.7. On a 60 degree day. That is with a k and n panel filter, muffler delete, tork pipe, NST pulleys, lightweight wheels, pierburg WG valve, hks plugs and a bluespark set at C. I got a 6.9 once without the bluespark... timing on the app seems normal, boost levels peak at 17, everything seems to be good, just getting slow times. Car is much quicker than before the mods, but I just keep thinking something is wrong. Maybe the app 0-60 isnt accurate. It feels faster than what Im getting. I have read stock 0-60 times arounf 6.3- 6.5...

Seems like 17 psi is just stock boost. Are you measuring with app or with an actual boost gauge? App will not pick up actual peak boost because the bluespark "tricks" the boost signal. Getting below 6.5 0-60 is tricky on FWD cars. Are you DCT or manual.?

Im using an app, i figured 17 was normal, wasnt expecting a higher reading with the bluespark. Its a dct. I got 6.7 once at about 3/4 throttle going uphill. It seems like if i peg it to the floor its almost slower on average... maybe i just got a slow car

Yeah finding a descent level surface is a must. Are you getting a lot of wheels spin in first? Is traction control disabled? Too much wheel spin you may have to air down the tires some. Warmer weather helps with traction too.

Correct....helps to find fresh asphalt or concrete section to launch from with aired down tires. BTW your wheels match great with your car exterior color. Wish a gray one was available when I went looking. (y)

Did some more testing today. Aired the tires down to 33 psi, they were around 37 from the recent warm up. Had some cooler weather tonight and saw the times consistently lower. Managed a 6.3 a couple of times once earlier when it was warmer and was able to get 6.5 pretty consistently. Not terrible at least. Still wish it was reading a bit faster, but my app response may be slow, or some other factor. I also know a lot of magazines usually test with rollout which can lower times around .3 seconds from what I have read. I reset the computer yesterday when I added my HKS plugs, so I may do some more testing after a couple hundred miles and a fresh oil change. And try cranking the bluespark up a notch or 2...😎

Much better gains already. Airing down the tires 1 more psi and finding some E85 when clicking up the bluespark up a notch will get the results you want.

Been curious about how much e85 to add. I had an e85 tune on my flex fuel impala, so I fueled it up with pure e85 on that. I know the pump says it can vary from 51 to 83 % ethanol, which flex cars can adjust for. So I'm not sure how I would know exactly what I'm putting in a car not designed for it. They do have other pumps with i30 and something else that are maybe more accurate.

Where are you located? If you have E30 at the pump you can fill with that!! I use 4 gallons of E85 and finish the fill with 91 oct. I have plenty E85 stations around me so I just mix. I live in Sacramento and the ethanol stays consistent year around. I ran my '06 Evo (450 whp) on straight E85 for years. Ran my '18 Fiesta ST on E30 mix (tuned). Use an E30 mix in my '20 N-line and scorcher set on race or sport +.

To be clear, you're using a 4 to 8 gallon mix of e85 and 91 octane to get ~e30 on a 2020 N Line on stock fuel pump and injectors with no issues?

No .....Using 4 gallons of E85 per 14 gallon tank. That equates to E30. I am an all stock fuel system. I have had no issues with an E30 mix and do not anticipate any either. I have used E85 in other vehicles with no problems. Only disadvantage is your mileage will be less. I will trade performance for a small mileage reduction any day. Also I recommend you test your local E85 product for ethanol content.

Our tanks are 14 gallons? I've had my tank down to 9 miles on the display and have never been able to get more than 12 gallons in there

I am in missouri, I'll go check out the e30 pump on my next fill up
