I don't think he installed the IAT. Even if he does it ahead of the WI nozzles it would be better than nothing.

i always got AIT reading Rob. I put abit of tape on after i used the insulated bullet connectors so i would not have to worry about them agian.
And wire nuts work perfectly well along with the body ground for my AIT.

ugh

wire nuts are pretty bad in an automotive environment man. they're useful in situations where the wires aren't subject to extremes or movement. and even then they're only used because it's cheap and fast.

the ait sensor needs to be grounded to the block, specifically at one of the two sensor ground points by the fuel rail.

the ait sensor also needs to be inserted into the intake tract.

How can you expect your advice you offer to be taken seriously with a mess like that under the hood? First no FMICS? Then no crimpers?

I have crimped 90% of my wire connections but for stuff where i run 3-4 wires to 1 source and they are all realy small like the LC1 stuff it is easier to wire nut them + the stuff is under no movement stress so it should'nt fail. I also stand by the fact that WI is simpler/easier for me. The whole fmic thing has been blown out of proportion but oh well.
