    Hi people,

    as above really was looking at getting a gauge to see if a recent mod brings down the Post I/C temp at all. Any info on whether these gauges will display this ? If not any recommendations?

    Cheers, Jon

    Liquid reads the IAT's in the same way as the ECU/VCDS etc... uses the sensor input from the inlet masni so it will give you IAT's as the ECU sees them...

    Not sure on the other stuff as have not used them but suspect they work the same way..

    Thanks s3Dave for your comment, but i was questioning Post I/C which will be after the intercoolers, I just wondered where the AIT sensor was in the manifold ?

    Many thanks
