I pretty much recommend the open element across the board now-- We're actually going to put together a simple little kit with all the parts needed. Just crimp it together with the correct length of wire and you're good to go (wire included too).

You guys have *never* responded to me. I tried 3 times.

I'm in Gwinnett and interested in going MS in my 91 turbo.

On the LC-1 we should probably take it offline, but I'm interested in the symptoms. Ground should be together with the ECU and to a GOOD ground point. I'd then try pulling the sensor and running a full heater cal and free air cal. I've had awesome luck with these things-- I'm still running the older model that actually had an issue, wired and configured properly though I just can't blow it up. Hopefully it just needs a full cal-- I've seen that 'fix' a few.

Initially this kit will include the IAT sensor (uncrimped), pins for it, 8' of wire (you can cut to a pair of 4' wires to let you put it most anywhere in the bay), pins for the AFM connector where you'll plug the IAT in at, and your choice of an aluminum or steel weld on bung for the sensor. It's mainly designed for you turbo guys who already have your piping/filter solution in place and just need the sensor bits.

We're keeping it cheap-- looks like $29 will do it.

I am sooo not wanting to have to weld something that will be visible to other people.

Put the sensor right after the IC where it will be hidden or in the manifold then? I know both are not ideal but it would keep you from having visible welds.

Guys- just found a link on another forum to a youtube video of my prototype demo video... MegaScott who I let in on it early on posted it after the announcement-- it's not polished, but definitely shows how easy it is to install.

not really, there isn't much developing there worth reading. Unless you like answering questions like "Where is my battery?", or "where is my muffler bearing?"

I can't believe someone wouldn't know where their muffler bearing is...
