Also, if it needs to be replaced is that where you put in the 180 degree stat that everyone runs, and if so does it hurt your fuel mileage or anything?
Not 100% sure but I don't think you will have a problem with air temp sensor as long as it stays in the air intake tube. The 180deg stat people are referring to is the coolant thermostat. It's located where the upper rad hose enter's the water pump on the front of the engine
