Default relocate IAT sensor?

How many of you guy's/gal's have relocated your IAT sensor right by the TB or right in the intake after the TB? Doe's it seem to help much on a N/A application? I have seen different stuff over on HPT forum's that say relocating the sensor and good tuning on the cylinder charge temp can drastically improve performance when running in warmer conditions...any insight on this from people who have seen this first hand?

I just don't see how that is safe.....When your IAT's get too high you get pinging etc.. So how are you going to prevent that by lying to the motor about how hot it really is?

I would get away from the iat sensor in the maf. It is very slow responding.

your MAF get's heat soaked and lies about intake temp, if you relocated the IAT sensor you would think it would be more accurate to the actual air quality the motor is using

I relocated mine to the EGR spot on the intake. I just ran it at the track and my IATs started at 122 at the end of the run it was 99.. I was rougly 96* outside today... I ran a 8.5 today so 122-99, in 8.5 seconds...

so it's definitely worth it to buy a sensor and relocate it to either the intake or right before the TB?

I thought that the IAT sensor was in the MAF...did you get a different sensor and remove and re-route the wires Corey?
