I'd like to do an IAT relocate and split the MAF thermistor off into the intake filter. I'm planning on ordering parts over the weekend and was wondering if anyone had a list handy. I think I'm pretty capable of figuring it out on my own, but didn't want to waste time forging a path that's already been trodden.
Any open-style temperature sensor that fits that connector will work. For instance, there are 10+ available on Amazon, but information regarding the thermistors they use is not provided (I already looked).
I bought the sensor without the pigtails, since it's $2 cheaper and I have no need for the extra pieces if I have the Casper Electronics harness.
There's no guarantee that that kit has a better sensor. Reviews mention that the GM part already has "a" better sensor. It was $60 all said and done, and I'm not tapping into anything.
If I don't see a big difference in responsiveness, I'll pick up an Omega 44005 for $15.
The omega thermistor's main benefit is faster response time. On a car that doesn't have major heatsoak issues (maggied V's) the stock IAT is sufficient. also the thermistor was closer to $30 after their $8-10 S&H charges.
Easiest thing I've done in a very long time. Everything fit perfectly--just needed a large drill bit to punch a hole into the rubber at the base of the air filter. Added a really, really thick rubber washer around the base of the sensor for insurance. I don't have temperature comparisons yet because it's finals week, but I'll see what I can do about it later. Here are the three parts I ordered (all told, they cost about $60):
Only a few more weeks before the piano black Forgestar F14s arrive and I have the Extreme Composites hood painted! I'm still tuning the 8", 650 in-lb Eibach springs in the back. I think the rear needs to come up a half of an inch.
