Default just got my own intake installed

ok so i pulled off the old stock airbox (it was bolted down, i didnt know that... :( ) and on the TB behin the old coupling i see a little rin with two holes and a little metal filter... i hope this was the MAF screen? i pulled it off and put on my new pipe and filter... my K&N filter dosent have a AIT hole so right now its free floating... what will this affect when its unpluggedand what does it even do? when i floor it, it sounds like a turbo or a cat stuck in the TB, i like it.

SC whine is awesome. You need to drill a hole and get some grommets to put the IAT in the pipe, or drill a hole in the filter and stick it in there. Unplugging it is not good. That was the MAF screen you unplugged, its fine out as long as you dont have rough idling problems.

It'* a lovely sound @ WOT isn't it? I miss it with my muffler being louder...

Not all filters have the hole.

Not on OBD1.

Just try to get it in a spot that has temps closest to the incoming air until you fix it.

IAT-intake air temperature sensor.

It needs to be in the pipe or filter. Reading as close to the real outside air temp as possible, just as stated here. Your power and efficiency are hurting if you're reading hot engine bay temps.
