That is not a performance chip it is simply a 10 cent resistor that reduces the signal coming from the air temperature sensor to fool the computer into thinking it is cold out and the engine needs more fuel.

You are best off not messing with such tomfoolery. You will rarely see more than an increase in fuel consumption and a placebo effect. At worst the overfueling can lead to premature catalytic converter failure.

If you are dead set on doing this, the air temperature portion of the MAF meter is wires 5 and 6, colored black and red/blue respectively.

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 !

1994 toyota pickup, 4x4, 3.0 efi, I need to know the color of the TWO wires that go to the IAT sensor? These wires are intagraded in the connector to the MAF sensor ?


The IAT is inside the Air Flow Meter in the air intake and is not serviced seperatly.
Using an ohmmeter measure between terminals THA and E2. Resistance should read:
at -20°C (-4°F): 10 - 20 k ohms
at 0°C (32°F): 4 - 7 k ohms
at 20°C (68°F): 2 - 3 k ohms
at 40°C (104°F): 0.9 - 1.3 k ohms
at 60°C (104°F): 0.4 - 0.7 k ohms

If reading is out of specification. it will be necessary to replace the Volume Air Flow Meter assembly. Also, I suggest check this wiring diagrams...

I have a 2000 VW GTI VR6.I'm trying to connect a performince chip


do not cut into these wires. any real performance programmer will not require you to do this. these ones that tell you to cut into the IAT will ruin a $700 mass air flow meter, and do not do anything. all they do is try to trick the computer into thinking it is colder then it actually is, and to richen the fuel mixture, which will actually HURT performance and emissions because the air density does not match what the temp sensor is reading. the temp sensor is there for a reason!

Which 2 wires is The IAT on 2007 Silverado


The intake air temp sensor is the one that is not the mass air flow. It should be a little 2 wire sensor in the inlet tube. The mass air flow is near the air cleaner, and is inline with the air inlet tube.

There are 5 wires in my MAF plug. I need to disconect two of the IAT wires to add a performance chip. I just don't know which two those wires are.


get a diagram from dealer for the iat not mass air and just hook it up to iat. maf are to exspensive to mess with . tell the dealer you need to replace your iat and need a diagram they will give it to you. that's your wires

I have a 2003 hyunda tiburon 4cyl..Need to locate intake air sens


Hi
It is the sensor on the middle of air inlket manifold. but there is two sensor built to one. as I remember it was 6 or 8 wires connected. I have the rigin drawing of you like I can send you it by mail. but I recomand you not to connect this chip. I have tried severral types and the difference is very little and chance for distroying cabelsensor and get check engine light comeing all the time. If you need a chip you could try the Volo Performance chip VP 12 or you must talk with Seoulfast racing about changeing or update the ECU on your car.

Good Luck

Yes. That is exactly it. The Air Intake Temp Sensor is built into the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the Air Filter Box. Below is a picture...

I cant locate the iat and the maf sensor wires on my car.


I can tell you that the mass air flow sensor is up front on the drivers side of the engine. It will be located on top of the round black tube that runs behind the air cleaner box. The IAT, or the IAC valve should be located closer to the engine towards the end of that same tube. That's where the throttle body is located. I would suggest going to your local library and referencing a Mitchell or Chilton repair manual if there is one available for that new of a model.
