"What do the temperature offsets mean?"

The 4 settings are:
0°C offset (Uses factory-installed IAT sensor)
IICE Air is factory set to -20°C offset.
Important note: Without the -10°C adjustment, the device will not work with the future products.
At the -20°C setting it performs identical to these devices:

|Good question. The four settings are offsets of the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor input to the ECU.|
For example, if the outside air temperature is 30°C/86°F, and the IICE Air is set to a -10°C offset, then the ECU thinks the air temperature is 20°C/68°F.
30°C air temp - 10°C negative offset = 20°C ECU input.
The ECU gets a 'negative offset' air temperature input, and thinks the air is a little denser than it actually is.
It responds by richening the mixture during 'leading throttle acceleration'.
And if you ask me what all that means I'm gonna smack you and point you to the first post in this thread, to the list of links to informative posts.
