HPT Weld flange inlet air temperature
Aluminum flange (CNC-machined). Allows you to move the factory Honda/Acura IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor to a charge line or intake.
In the factory configuration, it is a known fact that aluminum intake manifolds can become soggy, incorrectly giving the ECU a higher air temperature reading. In a standard engine/ECU setup this is not a problem, but adding a turbocharger, supercharger or other aftermarket bolts can cause problems. Ideal placement of the IAT sensor would be just in front of the throttle body on the intake lines or charge lines.
Some OBD2 Honda/Acuras also come with the air temperature sensor in the intake lines, and in a forced induction configuration you will need to find a safe way to mount the IAT on the charge line/inlet so it doesn't blow out under boost.</p >
Another application that these can be used with is some JDM intake manifolds that do not have a flange on the intake manifold to mount the factory IAT sensor. In this situation you can add this flange to the inlet.
