If you put the IAT sensor in the filter...what size was the hole you drilled it out to? I'm assuming there'* no more to it than making the hole larger and fitting the IAT snug inside? Last time I had this filter I put the IAT in the pipe...this time I want to do it the other way.

If you have a soldering iron you can use that. Expand it by melting away a little plastic till it is snug, and you dont have any shavings inside your filter.

Yeah, may be hard to get all the shavings out of the filter...no soldering iron here, I'll have to improvise.

You could use a lighter and a nail to do it.

I ended up dremeling the hole for the most part. I started carving it out with a pocket knife...was taking too long so I use a dremel w/ a sanding cylinder...was the exact size I needed too. It'* pretty snug in that it won't come out by itself or by the intake torquing. It pulls out by hand pretty easily though.

The intake is in, new cleaned/polished throttle body too. Going for a joyride in a little while
