EDIT: I have got the images

Hi,
Does anyone around south east Melbourne have a completely stock SH XT engine bay (cat back is fine). I just need to take a thermal image of the engine bay after a few minutes of driving.
Also would be great to get a image of a COBB heat shield in operation.
Cheers,
Toby

Presumably it would be a bonus if they had a dyno tune coming up. Get some thermal images at full load!

I certainly plan to have the camera when mine hits the dyno next time.

On the dyno wouldnt really be that good of a representation as the dyno is stationary. Dynamic airflow througj and around the vehicle will probably change things up quite a lot.

Currently Im only interested in radiant heat from the exhaust systems and the effect on the tmic (Primarily in slow moving traffic where the car will spend most of its life). Of course we all know the answer, but seeing it in real time will be handy.

Toby, I have a stock SH XT MY10 which you can use for imaging in return for a six pack

Thanks, though I took up some offers last night so no further need.

Wasn’t entirely happy with the camera. These temps are from driving at 80-60km with very light input.
Tonight I’ll head up to the hills and get some heat into it. Hoping i can borrow the $75k thermal camera and get much higher resolution images.
