IAT relocating benefit???
I want to start a bit of a discussion here about WHY we should re-locate our IAT sensor.
The IAT sensor is supposed to measure the temperature of the air going into the engine, not going into the filter.. The way i see it is that if you were to re-locate the sensor to a different location, all you would be doing is tricking the computer to think its getting colder air when in actuality, the air will more than likely warm up before entering the intake manifold. Thus unnnecessarily richening the A/F mixture. The same result could be acchieved, by putting a Resisor inline or parallel with the IAT sensor in the stock location. ( i dont remember whichway would be appropriate here) Therefore i dont believe any benefit could be achieved by re-locating unless it make installation simpler with a CAI set-up.
