You mean before the TB, or on the intake manifold?

I'll have to update the firmware anyway to MSnSE, so I'll just leave it disconnected for peace of mind.

Before the TB in the IC piping. Not the intake mani.

I figured that would be the best place for it since it's the closest to the engine. Is the IAC dependent on the IAT? That's the only thing I could think of that might cause a problem.

too many acronyms. i assume iac = intake air correction.

if can be dependent of the IAT or the CLT temp. My problem is mine heatsoaks once i turn off the engine.

I've read a couple accounts of people installing their sensor in the intake mani and having heat soak problems as well as vibration problems because of the open element style sensor. Supposedly vibration is worse when mounted in the intake mani and the thermistor breaks inside the cage. That can be resolved by supporting the thermistor with silicone without getting it on the head of the sensor.

I meant idle air control, but if the manifold heatsoaks, then I'd assume the IAT won't read right on startup. I'll stick it in the IC pipe. I was just curious about the reasoning for not putting it in the manifold.

So now back to my questions about the fuel pump and fan. I guess everyone just wires up the FP to come on when the car is turned on and put the fan on a thermal switch? Are there better ways?

the thermoswitch will control the fans.

without building a circuit like the PnP, thats the best you can do about the pump. light green wire off a yellow plug relay under the driver side dash.

Has anyone come up with a circuit for the FP? I couldn't find anything with a search. I'd much rather do that than wire it to the ignition.

Also, does anyone know what size tap I need for the IAT?

I used the shielded wire ignition wire for the Coil 1 and Coil 2. Did I do this wrong? Do I need to go and get shielded wires for CKP and CMP?

I used them for the coils as well. I don't have shielded wires going all the way to my coils though and i don't have any shielded wires from the CAS. If you have problems then rewire it, otherwise don't waste your time.

Which you're supposed to. I misinterpreted the instructions on the first build.
