Default Intake air temp sensor adjustment?

I own a 2003 dodge ram 4.7, I have heard that there is a way to adjust the IAT sensor and that will give more power is this possible or true and how?

I heard you can add a capacitor or resistor or something to truck it into reading different. Checking to see if I can find it...

The some of the cheaper programmers do this to spoof the computer into reading a rich condition, thereby leaning out the injector output. However it does raise exhaust gas temps, potentially leading to engine damage down the road. Tread carefully.

^^^ Agreed. I am still looking for that article, but the author did stress not to get too crazy with your calculations as it would burn up some other sensors.

The =POWER=WIRE=> Is a PLUG & PLAY mod that will give you 8-10HP with less than 1 minute to install. Advancing the timing for increased HP is an old trick that has been used for many years. With the newer computer controlled vehicles there are no distributors to adjust, so to gain additional timing advance we need to alter the signal from the air temperature sensor for the desired advance. Your PCM uses the Air Temperature sensors to help control timing and Air/Fuel ratio.

Your O2 sensors keep your Air Fuel ratio nailed to 14.75:1 at all throttle positions except Wide Open Throttle (WOT) so the POWER WIRE can NOT cause you to run rich during normal driving because no matter what the AFR will be 14.75:1. For this reason The Power Wire has been reported to add 1-2MPG increase when driven lightly. But at WOT the Power Wire will add approximately 2.5% at WOT. When your at WOT you are more concerned with HP than MPG at that moment in time and while passing an additional 8-10RWHP is exactly what your looking for.

Don't do it.

It is not a good idea to fake your engine that much. Get a CAI, locate the IAT towards the end. You will get more airflow and an accurate temperature reading.

I know that isn't enough to persuade you otherwise, but it is no different than an ebay chip that claims 20hp. It just fools the computer and sends false data.
