    To get the sensor in the airflow better. Makes for more accurate readings.

    Some of us have/are replacing the sensor thermistor with a better, faster acting and more accurate one to try to combat heatsoak.

    There is also the option to extend the thermistor further down into the airflow to get the most accurate reading possible.

    Then they even ground down the casting on the TB so it would fit under the hood

    I believe he's 100% correct. The EXACT same thing happened to me, except I was 200+ miles from home. The dealer I took it to also replaced it under warranty, even with a maggie on it.

    Should i look into doing that before install? My 90mm snout is being polished, so install is being pushed.

    I would if I were you. It'll be easier while the maggie is off.
