cheap 5sfe iat mod

just wanted to post a thread on how to trick your car into thinking the ambient air temp is something else.

cut the wires from the iat sensor and route them back into your cabin then connect the wires to a potentiometer. now you can adjust the air temp you car "sees" so the car will act the way you want it to. this works great for you guys who have the short ram intake and notice that your car acts different when it heats up.

this is what one looks like:

90 celica:use the same guage wire that the iat has but solder the connections

lwf:the sensor should be on the air filter box if any one has a pic post it.

i own a 1mzfe motor so i haven't done it on my car cause i can't, but i have done it to my friends saturn and he has the g-tech pro so we were able to adjust his car's reaction and throttle response it also stayed consistant in hp and didn't loose and due to the fact that the ram air actually sucks hot air after awhile.

have fun
