it will work, but im pretty sure mine is 5/8. its best to put the IAT sensor in the plenum where the brake booster hose normally is on the 3400. then move the brake booster to where the EGR normally is.

if the IAT sensor is in the charge pipe close to the turbine it wont read correctly. the charge pipe gets heat soaked badly in that area

I just got done moving mine :)

I REALLY like this idea, how are the brake working now ? Just the same as before ? :wink:
yes brakes work just as good. the hole for the EGR is plenty big to give vacuum for the brake booster

I datalogged the temps and they were 8*C less on average now

I suppose you could get a jacket for the turbine and heat wrap the charge pipe too, but that gets expensive

if anyone knows where you can get one for around $50 let me know though :lol:

Damn, thats expensive.

And about your IAT / Brake booster setup, looks like I'm convinced (wasnt too hard eh ? :lol:), so even more work to get the turbo in there... damn :lol:

ya I dont plan on getting one of those turbo jackets until I have money to waste

it wasnt hard to do, making the plate for the brake booster hose took the longest. then you just extend the 2 IAT wires

I used the EGR gasket as a template for the holes
