don't get me wrong, it is likely fine, but I think it will heat soak way more than it should
That is not an IAT sensor. That is the MAP sensor, the IAT sensor is in the intercooler pipe.

did you try to draw it onto the crank with the crank bolt or did you use a balancer installer? The instructions for mine (from FM) say to use the old crank bolt. But my local auto parts store has a free rental of a harmonic balancer installer with the correct thread size...

What I did the first time that ended up destroying the woodruff key, which in hindsight was totally the wrong way to do this, was to line the damper up and slide it on ever so slightly with the woodruff key already lined up. One issue that made this difficult initially was that the clearance on the snout and the inside of the damper are so tight that its extremely difficult to get it to slide on. As I was pushing the damper on I presume it pushed the woodruff key down the snout and to the rear of the damper essentially causing it to "slide up" the rear and behind the damper sandwiching it at the back. Now having put the damper on and taken it off so many times it slides on/ off rather easily. This time we basically used the old crank bolt as you mentioned to push the damper/ woodruff key on together. Worked like a charm.
