    The whipple tune is unique in that it uses the IAT sensor preblower. Most, if not all, aftermarket tuners use the post blower IAT to accurately monitor temps. There is a reason why Whipple does this and it has been mentioned somewhere here on the forums in the past, but I can't find it at the moment. Nonetheless, you will need that sensor relocation kit if going with PB Dyno or Lund.

    The whipple tune actually does use a post-blower IAT sensor, but the problem is that they use a special tune that reads the temp from the IMRC wiring harness. PBD or Lund uses a different type of tune that only reads from the IAT sensor connected to the MAF harness. So, they require the relocation kit which wires the new IAT sensor to the MAF harness.

    Whipple even offers the kit if you are going with an aftermarket tune. I've been happy with the Whipple tune, but I'm not going for max power.

    Really!
    I didn’t knew about this and wasn’t ask for it when changed from Whipple tune to PBD.

    My first tuner didn't require it either. He just used HP tuners and edited the base whipple tune and made very minimal changes ( turned on per cylinder knock control, and edited O2s for the catless headers.)

    I got the relocation IAT when I went with PB Dyno.
