The dealership "fixed" the issue and added this funky guard (see pic) on my intercooler which i know cuts down on performance. Just not sure how this can be an allowable fix. Anyone else see this fix before


Plate put on intercooler

They are doing this to try and raise the temperature in the CAC system to "burn off" the moisture. They don't have an acceptable fix right now other than to try and Band-Aid it. See my previous post for a great fix that will keep carbon deposits off your valves and the moisture out of the system. This engine is phenomenal and has the potential to last 400k miles, just needs to modification to do it. The damn EPA and CAFE standards are what's killing these things.
