Ok, that solves that question. My car is running fine. I did not see anything like that at all. Yea, I took the entire setup out. I have a pretty good plan on what I have to check out later. So I am thinking it is mainly the sensor now and disconnect my battery for a little bit and then fire it back up. I will also use the stock grommet and place it in the pvc tubing for my sensor to be pluged in.

Sounds like a plan

I did not get very far at all. The grommet that is located inside the stock air hose is lodged in there pretty good! I really dont want to cut or rip anything incase I have to go back to stock setup. Does radio shack or walmart sell some type of grommet with two 'resistor prong things' near the bottom so the sensor can be pluged in?

Sounds like a part number question for Bill, then you can get it from the dealer or gmpartsdirect.com

Twister, can you take a pic of your setup? We're talking about inserting a rubber grommet for the head of the sensor to plug into the intake with. Just push it in up to the flange on the sensor head. We're not talking about the electrical connector. I can also shoot a pic of my setup if you need me to. Standard rubber grommets can be purchased at Radio Shaq. You just need to measure the diameter of your IAT sensor head just below the round flange (or rim), and get a grommet the right inside diameter for a snug fit. For instance:

My IAT is 5/8" of an inch in diameter (yours is different). I bought a 5/8" ID grommet, that required me to drill a 3/4" hole in the intake pipe to insert it. It fits snug enough that I have to pre-wet the sensor head with saliva or water in order to insert it into the grommet. When it evaporates, it'* in there very tight.

If this does not help let me know, I will get better or more in depth pics. Yea I know the sensor clip is broken, came that way from the lot. Never fell out so never replaced it.

Um, I am not sure. The cable that is in the engine is what is plugged into the tube. The grommet and the other part of what that used to plug into is still on the stock intake tube. Let me geuss, there is something on the stock intake tube that I need for this to work correctly? I was wondering what that funny looking device was on the inside of the tube. It looks like a little ball with three bars around it...? And that is not on the setup I have now.
