SOURCE: I bought a IAT sensor power chip, not sure if its

These are a scam. and what's worse they can cause severe spark knock in hot summer climates, this in turn can damage the pistons and require very expensive repairs. Also they will void both the basic warranty on the powertrain and the US Federal emission warranty. As to what they really are, they are no more than a 20 cent resistor, there is no "chip", the computer reads the resistance of a piece of heated wire as it cools and heats it can determine how much air is going into the engine based on throttle position sensor input, IAT stands for "Intake Air Temperature". Take it back and get you money back.
