    nope ACT sensor (air charge temperture) ..... i can understand why it would need to be done but its hard on a 95-95 blower stang since the discharge pipe is so small and i dont know where to put it

    I think 5.HOE was talking about having it on the intake side of the blower . . or before the blower . . not between the blower and the power pipe. That's where I had mine and I never had any problems either.

    You can see the sensor installed in the black rubber right before the TB.

    My IAT was before the blower, but there was another sensor mounted in the bottom of the upper intake manifold.

    I'm confused now . . lol

    I had a 4.6 The IAC was moved to right before the TB so that the ECU would see the intake temps change should my MEth quit spraying, and reduce timming.

    Even if it isnt the correct sensor, he can see how they are relocated :)

    the guys on corral were saying to move the ACT sensor between the tb and blower cuz thats the real temperture thats goin into the tb..... if its put before the blower in the power pipe its always gonna read the same temp when in reality the blower is making more heat ....... lol anyone following me here i think i confused myself a little bit

    same principle as what I said...the temps are different after teh blower depending on the outside air, the timming should change accordingly. Look at what I did, that should work for you :)
