Thanks for posting the conditions. 108F?!?! You definitely had very nice relative humidity, but if temps were more ideal, holy smokes, you probably would have had even nicer numbers!

Great work to you, EAS, and VFE!

We've had a hell of a heat wave for the past 2 months, it seems it's finally cooling down.

SAE results are corrected to a standard that reflects weather conditions. I did not see the uncorrected results posted, but would expect them to be lower due to the heat.

Still, I agree that even corrected results often do not correct for all of the loss. Sometimes heat causes timing to be pulled for example, resulting in lower power.

I just kept the scoops on so that the air would flow into the engine bay and out the vents

Got it. I was wondering if you worked up some trickery with the VF intake that I've never seen before.

Hey Joe - did you reuse your top radiator hose or was a new one provided in the kit?

Thanks, my kit didn't include one either so I'll do the same. I was just curious because I've seen other installation pics and vids that shown a custom VF one.
