Everything on it is cake except the Air Temp Sensor, mine just wont come out of the intake tube:pissed:, and im not looking to break it! That is my only problem anyone have the same problem or any suggestions on how to get the sensor out with ease??

I found that the easiest thing to do is to disconnect the wiring harness from the sensor first, then disconnect the intake tube with the sensor still in it. Once I did that, I had more leverage and yanked it out (albeit very carefully by rotating it in a circular motion while pulling) with a pair of needlenose pliers.

Ditto to what JerzeyJeeper said.
I also took a razor and just slit a little bit around it to give it some room to pop out. didn't completely ruin the stock assembly, but, definitely "helped" the sensor out a little.
