Would you believe my silly-cone patch on the plastic IC tank is still holding?!? The all-metal IC is in my store-room, humidity has made the cardboard box fall apart, and I'm STILL driving around on my patched up plastic IC. Unfreakingbelievable.

Since this thread got dredged up I may as well respond. Actually, the intake senor in the intake manifold on the MAP sensor is used for reading air temp for correction purposes on the baro of the MAP. I had no idea however that the intake temp sensor on the CAI tube was also reading baro. I guess I'll have to check into that one. Do you have any technical data you can post? Thanks.

This is a great thread. I have a similar problem. High EGT’s and I threw two codes P 0483 and P 0299. My boost doesn’t seem to be affected as it goes up to over 20 psi when I put my foot down. I have a 2006 Ram 3500 with a little over 70,000 miles on a reman engine. The truck has a total of 112,000 miles. The original owner had issues with high egt’s. The turbo and injectors have recently been replaced. They also put on a aftermarket afe dry air filter.
Would the map sensor possibly be the problem? When the truck went into limp mode is when it threw the two codes.
Driving on the freeway it had a loss of power. Dead peddle.Got off the freeway and was able to drive surface streets home with limited power. At first I thought it might be related to the apps or lift pump but after reading the codes I’m thinking otherwise.
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
