Mk7 GTI AM Commute Temps with Air Conditioner Turned On

Air Conditioned Commute Temperatures

Continuing to record post-intercooler temperatures this time comparing how the Air Conditioner affects the temperature of the air exiting the Intercooler.

The morning commute starts with the Air Conditioner off and then around time 800 it is switched on for the remainder of the drive.  Intercooler outlet temperature, intake air temperature inside the intake manifold, and the speed of the vehicle are shown in the charts below.  Temps are in degF, speed in MPH.

The afternoon drive is over the same route but with less traffic slow downs.  It is also higher ambient temperature in the afternoon.
