Default GM IAT Sensor

Good morning,
I write for asking advise about it,
Is the last part I need to purchase for having all the items for supercharging and I don't want to go on an error at this point.
My car is a 2001 vvt "146"hp.
Any link or any key word for finding fast??
Best regards!!

I noticed that my stock car has an IAT sensor located on the air filter plastic box, but it is a plastic one, what is the difference between this and the usual GM IAT sensor?
I read that the best place to locate it is welding a bung next to the THB (as close as the engine, real IAT), in my 90 SS elbow.
Also read about the MAF and if running MAF not necessary IAT,
MassAirFlow is not the same as caudalimeter??
******* sea of dudes.
Appart from that,
Do you recommend me to read the MSPnP DIY manual? Mine is MS Labs MS2 Enhanced, but no manuals at all finded and not answer from reverant yet.
I do not want to waste my time, or it will be handful?
Best regards

He apparently is supercharging at some point.

The sensor you want is this one: https://www.diyautotune.com/product/...r-with-pigtail , or similar.

Hi!! Thank you very much!! I appreciate a lot your interest. I promise I will make a good following of all the process because I find loads of info but without an order so is very difficult to make everything sense.
In presentation is my project.
Now only make working MSLabs ms2 enhanced but I have everything except the GM IAT sensor for supercharging and inter cooling, I almost get divorced also jajaja.
I will try to find that sensor in Europe, for not waiting so long until it arrives home.
Again thank you for your answers.

Also say that I will remove the MAF, so need the IAT working with MAP together. This is very nice i am marine engineer but never touched a car engine. I am learning again!! and hopping been able to teach!!
