How would you explain that? Another mystery under the hood. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> I have a FMIC also so humidity shouldn't make that big of a difference. My MAF is clean. <br>What are the symptopmps of a faulty IAT?<br>How about old spark plugs - would they have anything to do with that ?<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (xman03)

Large amounts of atmospheric water works kinda like meth injection. Keeps cylinder temps low.

Re: (EAX)

EAX - get a dyno on a cool rainy day and one on a hot dry day. Then compare the two. Try to get A/F and boost curves too. Make sure you go to the same dyno place both times <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

Wow! Totally unnecessary folks. EAX has plenty of mods on his R, LOTS of custom type stuff. If he doesn't have 380 crank hp, he really should, and its down to the pathetic real world hp increases of the VERY expensive stuff people sell for the R. I've driven his car, folks, we're not talking about ZayZay here <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
