You are correct in your description of my mod.
The links posted below used to work but there have been many changes to the website recently causing the older links to fail....To bad because many times you will find some useful stuff in those links.
Anyway, the original posting is here:
Automatic warm air intake (very long)
I have made a few changes along the way but the idea is still the same. This last winter, I adjusted the sensor to approx 88 degress. What I may do this summer is put two sensors in for winter and summer time. Have the winter one adjusted to 110 degress (the original setting from Honda) and the summer one adjusted to approx 80 degress to allow some air from the front to come in.
I now have an OBD reader I and now able to read the air intake sensor and it was able to average around 88 degrees in the winter months. In New Hampshire it gets very cold. I thought perhaps I see if I can increase to 110 degrees for the winter time.
