    Mine is still with OE intercooler and I see 80-100deg C on boost and 5-6 deg higher than ambient when cruisin around.
    I'm upgrading to universal FMIC and it will be interesting what temps will I see
    The only way to be 100% certain that work has been done properly is to do it yourself.

    Bigger intercooler, Bigger pipework, Ceramic coated manifold, Heat wrap the exhaust (Mine's wrapped all the way to the 2nd cat).

    I'm not sure what the temps will be like in the summer but with the above my intake temps have been 5-15degrees above ambient through the winter.

    surely wrapping all that manifold will keep the heat in and make your pistons melt quicker?

    The manifold is ceramic coated (Like being wrapped but better).
    I'm not sure I'd want to do it to a standard manifold but I have the dbilas manifold.

    The idea is that you keep the heat inside the exhaust which makes the gasses travel faster.

    After a hard run I can still touch my manifold after 10 mins of cooling down time!!

    I did some testing last night with my data logger funnily enough

    Ambient temp 12.5c

    Cruising temp 15-16c

    Maximum temp attained 50c

    This is on standard IC and stage one map 2.2 airbox with standard air inlet duct, I'm somewhat concerned 50c is too high so may go for an aftermarket IC
