oh wow...brother...I'm pretty sure we don't have an IAT sensor on the celica...an IAT sensor is usually a sensor in the manifold that tells the computer how cold the air coming into the engine is...and this is turned into some sort of density reading and if its cold out you get more fuel, and hence more power...he celicas have a MAF (Mass air flow) sensor which has a temp probe, but instead sits in the Intake tube before the throttle body and tells the computer how much air is coming...regardless of temp...if you get more air-flow (Cold Air Intake) you get more power

Oh man because i bought this power tuner box that gives more horsepower to my celica but it say that it connects to the IAT sensor. it says that its usually located on the air Intake tube, Intake manifold or throttlebody housing.

^^^ oh dear...is it some ebay gimmick...all it is supposed to do it tell the IAT sensor that the air coming in is cooler than it really is...you wasted your money...sorry...oh, and if it is some ebay thing, open the box up and you'll just see each of the wires connected with a radioshck resistor inside of it
