Default New intake trouble...

Well today I've been installing a new AEM short ram intake on my car, I haven't had any problems installing it but from the stock system there seems to be a sensor or something that has no place to connect to. I don't see anything mentioned about it in the directions so I'm basically wondering what to do. Do I need it connected? is there going to be some check engine light that's going to be on now? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

is it the sensor that usually clips to the front of your airbox and has a vac line connected to it? it also has an electrical connector on the sensor. Here is a pic of the sensor im talking about on my weapon R CAI setup. I have an 07, but I think they are 100% identical engines.

Here are some pics.




The first pics is the wire that has nothing to connect to after I put in the intake. The second is where it connected to on the stock system.

The system I bought was for a 2.5rs but I was told that I wouldn't have any problems putting it on my OBS. Could that be the problem?

Might that be for the intake temp sensor?

Yeah thats the IAT Sensor Intake Air Temperature. You have to install this in you intake, so the ecu can read the temp of air combine through the intake. Pepboys or autozone sells a kit for this especially, comes with a drill bit to make the hole on the intake and the necesary rubber to put around the hole so the sensor stays put. Cost about $10 or something. Hope this info helps.

You have to take the other part of the sensor off the Intake box. The hole you see in the box is the one you have to make on the intake so it could work properly.

Thanks for the help, I was able to get it a couple hours ago, but I just drilled a hole and used silicone to put the piece in, I took my time with it so it looks nice. I might take a look at that kit though but it requires a smaller hole then the one I made (which was only like 1/16" bigger then the widest part) I'll just have to stick with what I got. Thanks again for all the help.

does anyone know what the sensor is for on the 07 2.5i that is pictured above? The end with the hose on it was attached to the stock airbox via an OEM hose and it has only one fitting for a hose to attach so it does not have air flowing through or across it.

It's your MAP sensor, if that pic is taken where I think it is (a little hard to tell).

K, that makes sense. Ill have to find a better way of keeping that silicone hose from getting kinked since it has to make a sharp turn.

I remedied my sharp bend by getting a coil spring with an ID the same as the hose that makes the sharp bend, bending it to the curve desired to make with the problem hose and then removing the temper from the spring by heating it rapidly until it relaxes. I used a standard propane torch and it worked well. Be careful not to get it too hot or it will become annealed and be very very soft. If it glows red, its too hot) then let it cool. when its cool it will maintain the shape you bent it to and you can run the hose through the inside of the spring to support the hose while it makes a sharp bend. It will allow the hose to make sharper bends than it could normally do without becoming kinked or collapsing. I tried to reroute like you are thinking, but couldnt get a good place for the sensor to sit and still have the wiring harness reach.

So we meet again in yet another thread lol. It seems like we are thinking alike on our cars. I think if we lived near each other we'd be collaborating a lot.
