I don't have low power, and I meant over 3k not under. I'm confident that I'm making around a normal M54 would up there, I simply think with my CAI pulling IAT temps down to 80F where a NORMAL intake...

It looks to me to be an open-element sensor. I would be worried about putting it anywhere but a sealed area like the intake.
Do the usual kits for IAT sensor relocations have closed sensors?

It's not density I'm concerned with, if temps are sitting at 110F instead of 80F the ECU will pull timing. I have better power once the temps have fallen at any given RPM past 3k.

Great info.

I think it will be worth it, because when my car is driven harder the intake temps come down to ~80F, and my car has a noticeable improvement in power. Now this could be coincidence,...

I'm trying to relocate my IAT like many of the M3 owners. I have intake temps upwards of 110F when cruising, and I lose a noticeable amount of power when the temps are this high.
My intake filter is...

Fuel Tank Breather

Hello,
I have a P0444 code for my charcoal canister/purge valve.

I actually was looking at those Eibach springs at 425, 400 would be smooth but 435 right now feels very balanced and running 400 may take away too much understeer IMO. I thought about Swift assist...

Okay, was very much hoping that what appears to me to be little travel may actually be a lot, but if I must go to a bigger spring than I must.
Thank you for your input.
