Looks good, but make sure no wires are exposed at all. The remaining wires should be taped at least but better to use the remaining wire harness conduit about 5" you should have stripped off from the IAT line. If you dont have any excess conduit you should have some extra pieces that came with the kit. Other than that looks fine. good job.

There is a little hole before the throttle body, I just cover it with tape, just wondering what's the hole for?

Actually taking a closer look, it looks like you did not re route the IAT sensor to the new intake. I think you have the sticker AEM covering the hole for the IAT sensor, unless this is how you want it......i dont think itll work. IF not Heres what you need to do: Unplug the IAT sensor from the wiring harness and remove the IAT sensor from the throttle body. Strip 5" of conduit off the IAT line. Insert the HEX Head plug into the empty hole on the throttle body were the IAT sensor was removed. Use the o-ring. Inser the rubber grommet into the hole on the intake pipe. Insert the IAT sensor into the grommet by screwing it in carefully pushing. Plug the IAT sensor harness into the IAT sensor installed on the intake pipe. Then again like i said int eh earlier note, wrap all exposed wires with the supplied conduit.

Yes that is the hole for the IAT sensor you have to re-route to the intake. Use the paragraph above for reference on how to do it.

what the difference does it make if I keep this setting?
Do I need to buy hex plug and the o ring?

Thanks

Your kit should have came with both. Where did you get the intake from? THe IAT need to re-routed or the CEL will stay on

The CEL stands for check engine light........the ECU will recognize that the intake is on without the IAT sensor in the new spot. Throwing the CEL on

well thats not good.........the kit had the rubber grommet you needed and the extra conduit. and that hex screw.......so if you dont have them youll need to find something close to it. Find this: 1 Hex head plug M12 x1.5, 1.4" slit-convulted conduit, Rubber grommet to fit the hole on the intake..

its a good idea to diconnect the battery, if you havent already, to reset the ecu.

you know if u already thrwon that **** away, just put back the iat in the original place it was, it shouldnt make a difference since its still reading the 02 from the throttle body instead of the intake.

correct me if i am wrong guys.

so basically what ims aying is go back to the step where you took the iat out and put it back where you took it from.

should work.

your fine i think, basically instead of having your IAT sensor on the intake you have it on your throttle intake body which is 6 inches up the line. really shouldnt make a difference since that is the original position anyway.

if i am wrong let me know people.

whoops didnt mean to write that.
So, maybe we all have diff opinions on this topic, but if you call BS than YOU tell me why it doesnt need to be moved. And why every AEM users manual and every person on here with the picture of their install has moved it , and i see yours is the only one that didnt. Maybe there is something i dont know here about this...so lets hear it.

what i don't get is why this has to be done, why did aem design it this way, what are the benefits/differences? other intakes don't do it.

cause aem is cool and injen is not? lols...j/k

The general debate here is that if you move the sensor out of the intake manifold area, it can read "colder" air, since the air has not hit the engine yet (where it starts warming up), therefore it adjusts the air/fuel ratio, letting the computer know that there is actually colder air coming in. This soudn about right? correct meif i'm wrong. I'm more of a DIY mechanical guy, not as techy as some of u guys out there.

I guess thats why, i have not understood this concept fully, but that sounds most logical. I know that the ECU gets alittle weird if it aint moved though. I just was trying to explain to the first post that it should be moved to be safe.

like i said before the iat sensor only gets moved down 6 inches, the air hasnt really hit any combustion stage at all and at this point has just passed the butterfly air intake flappy thingy and thats where the iat starts to read the air.

so like i said i dont see why it makes a difference. so far silverbullet has had the best explanation and i will agree with that. dont see why your CEL should come on though.

Well has his CEL came on yet? Usually the CEL takes about a day to come on if there is a problem, so then if it does'nt than maybe he should just leave it the way it is then..No harm no foul?

Do you notice any problems with the throttle response? Since I've gotten my installed, mine revs smoother and the rpms hit redline pretty quick now. If yours does the same...maybe it's not a problem. But the AEM V2 instructions specifically state to hook that puppy up at that spot so that's all I gotta say about that.
