Wire up an IAT & connector if you want it to run right.

The Fiero harness uses the same connector for the IAT.

What's an IAT? My engine came from a 96 bonneville. Will I have the same issue?
Havent had the harness made up yet.

I know there's a MAF, IAC. And TPS On the throttle body.

I use the IAT from the fiero huh I don't remember seeing one on my 2.5 duke, ill look again. my harness has no plug for the IAT so can I use any IAT ? or just play it safe use the 2.5 duke or maybe the 2.8 v6s IAT? hey thanks for the feedback!

84 - 86 2.5 Dukes use a hot air stove on the exhaust manifold to maintain a constant intake air temp so they don't have an IAT (aka MAT) sensor. Heating intake air so you don't need a sensor is a crappy way of doing it so GM went to the IAT for the duke in 87-88.

All 2.8s used an IAT.

You can use the 2.8 IAT in the air cleaner can along with the connector. It does have the same resistance curve as the 3800 sensor. Using the 3800 IAT however is a better choice.
