That makes sense and I completely understand what you're saying. I'm fairly impressed with the performance of this car, having only mild bolt-ons and a piggyback, but I would also like to see what times could be achieved with an intercooler, charge pipes, a down pipe, a custom ECU tune and stickier tires.

I will say that dang, there is so little room under the hood to get to anything, just looks so "busy" with a larger engine shoe-horned in there. I wonder if there will be much room to do bigger intercooler and charge pipes on the 3 when CorkSport does have some of these items for the CX-5 already. I know the turbo inlet pipe is coming out soon, and a DP is apparently on the way too. But it looks like Mazda has designed this in the 3 to run hot normally intentionally, which is just strange to me compared to previous cars. Oh well, I'm happy with how much the JB4 is indeed helping for now, I'll try to keep this thread a little more on-topic, and I'll try to see what kind of temps and times I can pull off with an ethanol mix now my car is "broken in" and have the air flow mods, that should be fun for now!

"1) Adjusted TEMP_IAT logging channel to reflect charge temperature, post intercooler (I think).
2) Moved MAF air temperature over to ign6 channel.
3) Added pre intercooler charge air temperature under trans temp."

Yep, and I appreciate all the different readings as they really help tell the big picture!

Since 1. is easily the highest of the 3, I'm assuming it is actual intake manifold temp with hot EGR gases already mixed back in, to be clear. That is what I monitor live as one of the 6 gauges and the one I refer to as normally is allowed to get up to 120+, in fact I see 130 or so as "normal" and is the one I can now keep low, within 20 or so of ambient with normal driving until one good pull with my air flow mods that before would hit 110+ even in normal driving. It's my educated guess that I believe this is intentional by Mazda to help prevent carbon build up, help emissions and provide consistent performance. The ability to keep this lower does seem to result in higher performance, but so far air flow mods for the hood seem to help a lot only until the first big pull, then helps much less, but still some after this.

I'm now assuming that 3., pre-intercooler, under trans temp, is what the ECU determines at what point to open AGS/start IC H2O coolant circulation, I'll have to pay closer attention to that now too.

I'm happy to say that having an intake with/heatshield that uses stock snorkel feed that 2. stays within a few degrees of ambient. Since you have the same intake setup as me, I'm sure you would notice this as well if you check the logs or gauges under IGN6.

Is anyone else not seeing this in the logs? Is this a gauge only option? It would be nice if this was logged so I could compare to the other two, which are indeed right in the logs. For the MAF temp that is listed under IGN6, just drop the decimal point to get the intake temp in F...

Look at Temp_Trans for pre intercooler temperature on the 3.

Right, but that was my question, it's not in the logs at all, must be a gauge option only thing...

I can assure you it is in the logs. Change the graph settings to display the additional data.

I don't use the graph function, it's much too small to view and manipulate on a phone very efficiently at all, it's a total pain. I have always exported the log as a spreadsheet. Now that I open the graph and see the settings I see there are a number items that are missing from the spreadsheet, that really sucks when it all should just be exported and included on the spreadsheet. I didn't pay all this money for a JB4 AND an app that doesn't export all the data, I guess I'm just gonna have to leave the app a bad review and maybe they will fix that. Not BMS fault, I know a 3rd party developer does the app, but this is BS. Out of all the data points there are only a handful not exported to the spreadsheet, I don't understand why they all can't just be exported.

Edit: OK, looks like it's called "transf" on the spreadsheet, and temp_water is called "waterf" on the spreadsheet. It's certainly not helpful and just confusing to have different names for the same thing between the graph and spreadsheet and only mention one of them when a spreadsheet is FAR easier to scroll through and use. That's why a more complete guide with all the terms and differences in names used between the graph and spreadsheet would be nice.
