Ok, so I have a 2016 st I installed a fswerks intercooler about a week ago . I've read everywhere on here where people are seeing just a few degrees above ambient with their charge air temp, mine however never drops below 15 above ambient and under a hard pull I'll see anywhere from 30 to 40 above ambient. Is this happening to anyone else with a newer st? This was taken after the car sitting overnight. The car was on acc so no heat should have been affecting it. It's still 20 degrees over ambient, how is that possible?

Yep, it's confirmed as a bug. There is a stratified tune that fixes it I've heard, but basically been told it's a reporting issue and doesn't effect how the car runs. Maybe Ford never expected their cheesy intercooler to perform any better than 20 over ambient, so that's the lowest value it records.

Interesting, I might have to look into the stratified tunes. I'm just happy to hear it doesn't affect the performance of the car. Thanks for the info guys.
