And yes, you need new flywheel bolts. Modern Performance in Houston has them, pre loctited and everything. https://www.modernperformance.com/
I personally would not really move the IAT / MAP sensor too much as it may be calibrated for its current location.
1. Are radiator hoses a failure point or weakness? Is there a benefit to upgrading them?
2. Fantastic, I'll get those ordered ASAP so I have them when I need them. Thanks a ton!
3. As far as iat relocation, I'm just tired of the absolutely horrendous consistent state of heatsoak. Having to drive the shit out of it for more than a few minutes straight just to get the sensor to read low enough to give me full timing and boost is pretty shit. I initially plan to install the IAT just to take measurements with a multimeter to verify/see where the additional heat is entering the intake system (before tb or after) after being cooled by the intercooler. It's well known that intercooler out temps are far, far below reported iat temps at any given moment, so it'll definitely be some interesting data.
During extended periods of low airflow, I'd expect my relocation to read cooler temps than the engine is actually getting at the port, but it's probably conservative enough that it doesn't matter, and If it's not, hopefully I'll be able to change that in the ECU. I'm just trying to improve the response once air gets moving. At the very least, I'll just take data.
I'm gonna leave the MAP where it is, by making a breakout harness and separating the IAT. This is all time dependant of course, and how much it bothers me once I get the car going again.
