ok first of all i want to let all you know that this is the most helpful site ive been to. most of yall really know your sh*t. ive learned so much in the past few weeks just reading year old posts. ok i got a few questions i know someone can help me with:
im Thinking of relocating my IAT sensor to my K&N intake, but was wondering if i will need to reset the ECU after relocation?
and i have a jet chip, that came with the truck when i bought it, do i need to take that out?
also if i wanted to check out the truck without the jet chip, can i just take it out, or do i have to disconnect the negative on the battery?
one more question; if i relocate my IAT do i need to get a 180 t stat as well?
sorry if any of this doesnt make sense im far from a mechanic if you know what i mean.

sorry to keep adding questions, but also im haveing the common problem of shifting out of first at WOT, at 4900 it starts jumping and i have to let off the accelerator for it to shift, i have read all kinds of posts of adjusting the kick down cable- is this the cable connected to the white clip? and if so what do i have to do to get more slack to the cable?

I moved my IAT this is the first time I've heard about anyone wanting or needing to reset the ECU or PCM. I didn't do it and no ill effects. I understand sometimes for mods you don't have to reset the computer it will just take a little longer for it to learn what you have changed. I also ran a Jet chip with this IAT mod
no you don't need to take it out this is just one more piece in the puzzle to getting better performance and they work together. you don't need to get a 180 thermostat but it certainly wouldn't hurt to get it. If you have a Jet stage 2 chip it requires use of a 180 thermostat. Not sure what the downside is to not using this thermostat with the chip though. Possibly ping city. I have a page showing where it is and what to plug the hole with here www.mark-world.com/dakota/iat.html

thanks for the help, ive been to your site before and went and bought my 1/4" plug. i was debating on relocating tonight or waiting for the 180 t stat. im gonna go ahead and relocate it tonight.

now- about the shifting problem, i put some slack in it and it shifted at 4100 and i felt quite a bit of vibration in the pedal at about 3500 that lasted for like a second, also i could feel a hell of a lot of hp loss. so i went back and put less slack on it, and it went back to the jumping, so i went back and made kinda a medium and it shifted at 4700 and the vibration was back as well as the hp loss-- you think i should just put it back how it was, and take it in to be looked at? im really scared im gonna cause some damage to my tranny.

I'm having the same trans problem. Happened a few weeks ago and I got codes referring to the pressure sensors in the trans. PCM was reset and all was OK for about a week and started again, but this time I get no codes. I have an idea what might be wrong but not sure. When I get it fixed I can let you know.
