It appears that it would be right where the hood scoop pushes air onto, suggesting that it will push air back from the IAT sensor. It is of my opinion you'd be fine.

Edit - I saw the picture on post 9. I think that would be right where the old intercooler would be so I think you'd be good to go.

Also - Did your car require any special ramps to get onto that trailer with out bottoming out? I'm hauling my car to P&L next week and want to make sure to think ahead.
Yea I still have my scoop so that area is getting flooded without outside ambient air I just didn't know if the sensor my get heat soaked at low speeds and cause problems.

Anyone have an opinion on problems from putting it on the inside of the curve?

Layvon - as far as my trailer goes I have a few tricks. A little trick I learned was to drive the trucks rear wheels up on something to get the trailers tongue farther in the air. Obviously from the picture I have to take the bumper off and usually just put a couple small pieces of wood at the end of the ramps.
