    Hi there, I am getting to the end of the build where things are starting to get difficult, I am back to the air induction system. The air temperature sensor is my problem this week, I have made an adapter to go between the MAF and the pod air cleaner, the problem is that the sensor out of the air cleaner is a flat surface mounting and adapter pipe is round. I could bend the star retaining clip to match the inside of the pipe and sealastic the out side against air leaks. The issue I have with this is if the clip comes off it will go into the motor. My question is this can I mount the sensor externally in the heat sheild around the pod? Will it still work properly? Any input would be great as plan C is pretty rough.
    Thank you
    Mr Henry

    Thank you very much for that link, that is just what I need. I have spent the last week looking for something like that but could not find one.
    Much appreciated
    All the best till next time.
