intake air temperature sensor

I am looking for the intake air temperature sensor to try out a mod. All I am able to locate is the mass airflow sensor, but need the IAT with two wires. Can anyone point me in the right direction? thanks

Is this the one where you wire up a resistor to make it think the air is colder and it injects more fuel. I would suggest you leave it alone.

well the wires are going into the maf sensor housing where the iat is buddied up. this mod is a waste of cash and can cause more problems than actually helping

Yeah - the reason you don't want to screw around with the IAT sensor is because it won't fool the computer for long. Inject more fuel, drive mixture rich, and the O2 sensor figures it out in about a half a second, and forces a shorter injector pulse to compensate.

The adaptive learning in the ECU will take into consideration the change and work other angles to fix the anomaly. Thems computers ain't dumb!
