Default How are you guys holding your IAT sensor wires onto your MAF/AFM?

High temp electric tape, soldered into place?

Mine tend to fall out quite often and im looking for a more permanent solution. Something that can be easily reverse able and stand up to the high temps under the hood.

Lets hear what you guys have done.

I'm pretty sure I just have mine taped similarly to the pics in the MSPnP manual and it's tucked under my cool air box to protect it from radiant heat. No issues so far.

I pushed the tabs in and then wrapped the **** out of the plug with electrical tape. Its tucked away and you cant even see it.

Frak the AFM harness. Run the IAT sensor wire into the passenger compartment, put a vampire tap in the appropriate wire at the ECU connector, and plug into that.

Thats what i'm saying. Just got done doing this myself. You're already running a vac hose through there, why not a wire?

I've just about run out of existing holes to fit things through the firewall. Someday once I have a trusting relationship with the MS i'm likely going to do a complete re-wire on the engine harness and tidy things up.

I would like it to be reversible, so hacking up the harness isnt really an option for me. Im thinking, possibly find a used/broken afm and use the male end that plugs into the harness and just solder the wires to that, and have it plug right in.

I don't consider a vampire tap to constitute "hacking up" the harness.

But your idea about the spare AFM connector will work too. That's how I got F/P IAT working back when I had an EMU, after removing the AFM. Specifically:

+1 with a twist.

When I was running MS in parallel with the stock ECU, I had the IAT wire run into the cabin and attached directly to the IAT input on MS by passing the stock wiring/harness altogether.
