where did you find it? at Home Depot? I will have to canvas our Lowes to find something.

BonneMeMN, Twister and I will have to adapt whatever you do anyway to fit around our stupid PCM box.

Just simply cut the wires and solder on an extension wire to it.. less then 5 minutes.. ( if you're good with soldering.

You think Macho could also just splice them into new wires, using a connector? Maybe some 16 or 18 gauge wire?

Yea.. can do that too.. but connectors usually reduces power and may change the ohms/resistance reading slightly.. thats why I would suggest straight solder instead..( since I believe that the IAT sends info back in ohmage or resistance?? ) but for IAT I don't know how that would affect it.

Thats why I didnt want to screw with it. I will do the insulation thing first, since I need it anyways. If it doesnt help much then I will move the sensor.

I've got metallic bubble wrap looking insulation from Lowes. I think it was $25 for this huge roll that I still have most of.
