    induction kits...?

    hey all,

    i got an induction kit over the weekend as a xmas present.

    its an enclosed type as i know about the heatsoak on astra's but its a enclosed cone filter, and a sealed cold air ducting pipe that i can fit my arm down so there is plenty of cool air getting in...

    the question i have is can you have too much cold air going in? or similar?

    i ask because my car has always ran at about 90'c. but the last day at idle it still does yet when i stick the foot to the floor the temprature drops to about 80'c. it takes 2:30 mins at about 40mph accelerating and decelerating down a 40 mph country road..from 90'c - 80'c.the temprature outside is higher than it was before xmas and car is showing 10'c outside appossed to the 2'c a few days ago. also serviced my car on christmas day new plugs and oil and filter...(im not a xmas person so had been planned to do it xmas day when the fam is round so i could get out the house)

    any idea's?

    Induction kits love it this time of year, loads of cold dense air. They seem to perform better in the winter opposed to panel filters ect. Might just be a side effect due to the weather
