Ah ha..... I must have missed this before, because I was wondering why your IAT readings aren't closer to ambient.

If the IAT can be located in the very front of the filter way up near the headlight, you'll pull very nearly ambient readings from that baby, especially on the highway. I would recommend mounting that sensor as close to the cool air as you can. Your PCM will "think" your airflow temp is that much lower, and give you more fuel in return.

If anyone else is considering an autozone intake, there are a few holes with plugs in them that would be perfect for nitrous, or W/A injection nozzles...

If he just added a resistor it would do the same as moving it to just get a lower reading

and either way, his pcm realizes that the o2 sensors aren't giving the readings it would expect for the timing, fuel and intake temperature that it'* sensors were reading.

and in about 5 minutes, it wouldn't matter... the pcm compensates.

Exactly. My IAT is actually only about half an inch from the filter flange in the pipe anyway. I read within 5 of ambient while rolling. I was running the IAT in the filter, but that location was ideal for the nozzle for the WI, so I switched things around. I can swap back in 5 minutes.

I meant removing the EVAP all together like Allmachtige did? Will that set codes? Or is it easy to relocate?

Gonneville and Smell bird have there located behind the headlight, and Allmatige has a T fitting on his, I believe with no codes, but he hasnt been on here in a while

Behind the headlight sounds like a plan. I will have to look.

Are you sure that'* right? I thought common practice on this site was to get the IAT reading as low as possible? I swear I read that there'* an advantage to having a lower IAT number. Isn't there a difference between this and the Ebay scams?

i dont think so. The comp will re-adjust to the colder air by using the other sensors and such
