Heat coming from vents

I noticed while driving aggressively that hot air comes out of my air vents. I'm APR stage 2 tune, intake, and downpipe.

Is this happening because I do not have a FMIC? No other mods than the ones listed above.

Not really a bad thing TBH.

Saves $ on heat lmao

I'm stock and have it too. I leave my temperature in the middle. If it's on cold or hot then I notice it.

If you have your temp setting switched over to heat you'll have heat coming through the vents even with the fans off.

Regardless of the temp setting, if the car is moving, there is air coming through the vents with the fans off. The area below the windshield where the HVAC intake sits is a high pressure zone compared to the passenger cabin, and wherever there's a pressure gradient, air will flow. This is true for any car I've ever been in, I didn't think this was even a question.

Turning the heat up or down controls how much coolant circulates through the heater core, independent of fan speed. Therefore, if your heat is on, and there is air moving through the vents, regardless of whether the fan is on, you'll feel heat. I don't mean to sound condescending but I thought this was very obvious, but then again I am a nerdy engineer so I may have overestimated the obviousness.

I never felt it as strong on my other car so maybe I never noticed. It was something I had to discover myself. I didn't really think the temp would get hotter until you turned the fans on though.

Maybe because before this car I had climatronic? I dunno.

Yeah I think perhaps because I had discovered it myself a long time ago I thought everyone had discovered it by now :-P

Just put it on the windshield defrost position and let it hit the windshield instead of your face and forget about it


Edit: My e30 had the fun convenience of blowing hot air onto my feet and face which was no fun during the summer since I had no A/C.
