My IAT Sensor Relocation

I relocated my IAT sensor into the filter compartment, it doesnt get the heatsoak as bad now, next I have to seal the filter compartment fully from the engine heat, thats my next project.

I sealed the existing IAT hole with a bumper grommet I found around my garage, you can buy on in autozone, pep boys etc. I hole sawed a new hole 7/8" for the new IAT sensor location. I ran all the wire in a plastic wiring troft like the OEM ones you see all over the engine bay and it all looks like the factory did it because im that anal.

The temperatures im seeing now are much lower and closer to the ambient temperature, while standing still now the heatsoak is cut atleast by 50% once I seal the filter section I should have that up around 80 to 90%, Pics can be seen at the link below.

Steve its running alot better then it was before, the temp does not rise as fast now when standing still, IMHO opinion this is a must with whoevers CAI you are using. Once I seal the filter bay from the engine and just have ambient temp directed into the filter section its gonna get alot better!

Re: My IAT Sensor Relocation

So, if I am hearing you correctly... I should relocate my IAT sensor when my Volant shows up? And this will do what for performance?
