i've heard that for 1 degree cooler intake charge you gain 1 hp.
So...just bypass it with some hose...and everything will be good

It's not easy to bypass - you will have to make a custom manifold, or heavily modify the existing manifold. Wouldn't be terribly hard to just block it off completely. Not sure if that's a good idea tho.

on fuel inejcted it runs through the throttle body mostly to help the engine warm up faster
in other words emmision nazi crap
and yes the hotter the air going in the less power going out
it also increases teh chance of detonation
as far as the temp sensor location... i thought it was that doohicky mounted right under the thermostat on regular ea82t's and mounted in the water passage on the spyder style intakes from looking at this spyder i have blockign that off is easy and will be done
i am not sure how it is done on the standard ea82t intakes have not pulled mine apart yet

A little off topic but...
The EGR routes warm exhaust gas back into the intake. So will that give a greater chance of detonation? I remember somebody on the board saying that the EGR will help decrease the chance of detonation on a turbo car.
Here is a quote from skip:
This does make sense, the purpose of the introduction of exhaust gas into the intake is to lower the combustion chamber temp, thus reducing oxides of Nitrogen.
The turbo needs any help it can get in lowering the comb. chamber temp, this in an effort to reduce pre-ignition and detonation.
Many thanks to Mike for the excellent picts
to Caleb for doing the search and posting the link

1:1 would rule!
cut it and cap it.

I think in cali they do underhood inspections and if they notice that you did something, they may fail you before you even get to the smog test...if you go to get emissioned, make sure the car is nice and warm. Drive around town for awhile before hand.
Theres other tricks emission people have too, and some of the others on this board are emission inspectors so maybe they will chime in and give you better info than I could...
