Yes, the Air Charge Temperature Sensor is needed with the intercooled setup. Funny, my 85 T1 had the sensor...they must have gotten rid of it with the 86 T1 setup.
The charge temperature sendor from chrysler is physically different from the coolant temperature sensor, but both function identically. The two sensors are interchangeable.
A one piece later T1 setup will need to be drilled and tapped to accepted the charge temperature sensor. Be aware that I have come across two plug styles, both very similar but not compatible. Both styles looked like (and probably are) GM 2 wire weather pack connectors (one with radii, the other with different size slots.
I just completed an 85 T1 conversion to a 87ish T2 setup.
wait, for 87 electronics, T1 converting to TII does anyone know if the air charge sensor is there in the wiring harness? Someone told me it wasn't; however from what the dodge garage says, the sensor is there, but you may just have to drill and tap a hole? Anyone know about this??
on alot of newer cars that have these sensors people move them further away from the engine so that it reads colder air. would it benifit to put them in the intercooler pipe or somewhere in the piping.
