I just put twins on my 03 and im not sure what to do with the sensor that's can I bypass it? in the air tube right after the air box. I now have a 5in intake and no where to hook up that sensor. I think it is making my truck run rough. Is it this sensor? What should I do about it?

Leave it plugged in and let it just set some where it wont hurt nothing. You could drill a hole to mount it in ur current intake.

Ok good deal. Ill get it tonight. It just measures the temp right? It doesn't measure the volume of air?

Yea just temp the only issue is it needs air flow thru it to properly read the temp. Mine has a little filter on it screwed to the battery box. This is not effective at all haha. But keeps the code from piping up. I don't really know if the truck would run different with it hooked up correctly or not. Ill be doing a 2nd gen manifold swap soon and when I do im gonna weld up a new intake pipe with a mounting hole for that sensor just so its not just hanging there in my way haha.

That's odd I didn't notice any change without the sensor installed correctly. Seems to run fine. But I might be sunrise when I hook it up correctly then too haha
