The equation for fueling in a MAP-based setup is strictly IAT/CTS/MAP based as to what is going into the engine (other than the CTS, obviously).
Initially that's what I thought would be the case but hasn't proven itself true the way we have the Hydras setup. We've been running intake temps pre-turbocharger for over a year and the AFR has been solid down to -20C and up to 70C.

If this weren't the case I would have installed the GM IAT in my own car. I do have a customer who uses the JDM IAT at the throttle body and he said it was a bit more consistent when the car is sitting still.
