I'm going to hate to see what my reading will be when I get in the car! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://media.firevortex.net/icons/custom/green/fv-green-no.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Maybe next year. Stupid question, will this void warranty?

96 in Tampa Saturday. Yesterday wasn't much better. I'll be a customer once I scape the money together.

Re: Calling Phuz.... (wdodge52)

I have a feeling the dealer would give you a hard time with one of those installed, despite the fact that it works better than the factory intercooler.

Ive been up over 100 F more times that I can remember this summer. In fact, the coldest weather I have seen since installing stage 1 is about 75. I cant wait until it starts getting cold.

Re: Calling Phuz.... (T5 for Life)

Not only I feel bad about the stock IC but when it reads over 100F its a biatch to sit in those comfortable seats <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

I plan on buying a FMIC (either Phuz's or Bell's) when I get back to SLC.<p>It's been LONG overdue.

When I was out in California for the past 2 weeks, they told me it was 116 a few days before I got there. I did see a 108 degree day. Crazy!<p>91 today down here at the OBX, but the R is still loving it! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (phuz)

I'm on Tampa too and when sitting in the sun, it's read as much as 118. It usually cools a bit once moving, settling around 95-100. The drive isn't that bad, it's the running that's killing me. I run 8 miles and lose 4 pounds, mostly water.

Re: Calling Phuz.... (Needsdecaf)

Yes folk,<br>I do recommend y'all get your mount fronted.<p>I took a little trip up the pike about high noon today to get my wheels straightened:<p><A HREF="http://www.wheelcollision.com/wccsvcs.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.wheelcollision.com/wccsvcs.html</A><p>It was in the low 90's, so I was running with the AC on....<p>... never felt it -- the power was all there, all the time.<p>For folk who live in hot climates -- you really ought to put the FMIC at the top of the list <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
