Air intake temperature
Hi there fellow alfisti !
Does anyone know what should be the difference between the air temperature and the air intake temperature?
I'm asking because today i was at the dealer and we connected the OBD Diagnoser and at idling my air intake temperature was between 38-40 Celsius (outside were 25 Celsius). After that we took the car back on the road and the temperature dropped down to 33-35 Celsius.
Is this normal? because i think the air intake temperature should be about the same as the outside temperature, especially because i have a BMC CDA that sucks air directly from the front bumper.
