Bernd. Lets say (I will in the future) buy this little deveice of yours. Can I leave it on all the time and turn the dial on the fly?

I guess what I am hoping is that when I don't need that extra boost I would like to run it at factory setting without turning off the motor.(Set the dial for current temp's) Save on fuel right??

Lets face it turning the engine off at a red light when the R/T beside you is reving like crazy just isn't cool is it?

Thanks

Does the factory temperature give the best gas mileage then?

So where do you set your IAT when you are just running around?

I still play around with the settings but the average is 70-60 degrees temp for me (11-11:30 position on the dial).

It varies from vehicle to vehicle so you can use those as a baseline but not for an exact figure.
