Those chips are not chips just a 5 cent resistor to alter the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module), the idea is that the engine control computer thinks it is getting colder air than it really is and slightly increases spark advance, u will feel no difference in power but u may gain 1 MPG in fuel economy, so u decide. One last note they are illegal in most states that do emission tests, it alters the factory controls.

I have a 2008 Pontiac G5 I was wanting to install a performance chip to it. It says to connect it to the IAT senor which has 5wires witch wires are for the IAT


The other three wires are for the Mass air flow sensor . That's a new one for me , performance chips or turners are used through the DLC . You program the engine computer . I have no idea what they can do from the intake air temp. sensor .The tan an lit blue wires are for the IAT sensor !

Where is iat sensor on 2006 toyota tacoma 4.ol 4door located ?


This is the 2001-2012 Toyota Tacoma wiring diagram, Toyota Tacoma IAT (Intake Air Temperature) Sensor Location and the Toyota Tacoma MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor Location, also included is a pinout of the sensor. You are likely installing a performance chip or a cold air intake kit for increased HP (Horsepower). You will want to be sure to disconnect the car battery before adding performance products.




Here is the Toyota Tacoma's Iat sensor diagram:

Hookup of G Force Performance Chip to a 6 wire IAT sensor for 2003 Hummer H2?


You have to contact the mfg of that product

It won't do a thing for your vehicle

Waste of money & may do some harm

Send it back

If you have no instructions that should send up
a red flag & G Force never has them apparently

The GForce Performance Chip has 2 wired (Black and Red) and the IAT Sensor has 5. Which 2 wired I need to used? My car is a Dodge Charger 2007 I appreciate Your answer


That is not a chip, it is a resistor in a fancy package. It cost about a dollar to make it. Jet also makes one. All it does is increase the resistance in your IAT circuit so that the PCM thinks the air coming in is colder than it actually is. Since most PCMs will add timing in colder air, you can get a bit of a perforance boost this way. The problem is, modern OBD 2 systems constantly checks itself and sensors. Since the PCM also reads a mass air flow sensor and an oxygen sensor, it eventually sees that there isn't as much air getting in as expected (since colder air is more dense) so it recalibrates the air temperture sensor thinking it is fautly. So, after a couple of days your 'chip' won't make any difference at all and in some cases it can actually cause the service engine light to come on. Also, the claims they make about these chips are unfounded and ridicuouls. Even a real chip or programmer can't expect more than a 15% gain. There is no way this IAT mod will add more than 3% and that will only be the first time you drive it. Try to get your money back and find a real chip or programmer for your car. If you are just bent on putting a resistor in your IAT wire, go get one from Radio Shack for a dollar and pocket the rest of the money.

I want to know which IAT wires to tie into for my new performance Chip. I have a 1994 Toyota 4-Runner with the 3.0 Motor. Thank you. Oh yeah, there are 6 wires that I found. Only 2 go to the IAT.


That chip is a waste of time and money, and your mileage is going to suffer. Why dont the instructions tell you which wires? The THA terminal is wire color Yellow/Black. the E2 wire is Brown/Black.

On my 1993 Geo Prizm i need to know were the intake temperature sensor is because i need to install a performance chip. Thanx


On the air inlet pipe from the airbox to the throttle body. But, don't believe those IAT performance chips, they are waste of money.

Locating the iat sensor on a 2003 dodge 5.9


The IAT sensor is along the intake tube before the throttle body. If your planing to buy the performance chip from EBAY or any other place, save your money. You can go to Radio shack and it will cost you less then $3.00 for the resistor needed to make your own "performance Chip" IF you like you can use and 10K ohm potentiometer wire it through to the IAT sensor wire harness so you can adjust your timing for the type of fuel you want to use or how much performance you want out of your engine. Here is a link to the installation of the resistors and the different resistor's you can use or like me use a Potentiometer. Note if the timing is to high on hot days, the knock sensor may trigger and the engine will power down 15% till next start up. Good luck and hope this helps. http://kingenterprises.net/IAT-Timing-Tricker.htm
