    New MAP sensors are made in china?

    I just bought the intake map sensor off Rock Auto for my 2012. The one I pulled out of the truck reads "AA5A-9F479-DA Made in Germany" whereas the one I received from RA reads "AA5A-9F479-DB Made in China". The cage around the sensor is also different. It's more open with no cross hatch on it. Is this now the OEM part replacement or did I get ripped off? Came packaged as Motorcraft CX2401

    Thanks dj. The sensor just looked different than the one I pulled. Also Germany is known for precision parts, China not so much. I drove a few miles on it since the swap and it seems to have improved my mpg a bit. It did read -DB so I think it's the next reiteration of this sensor.

    This is the one that is the boost reference in the intake manifold right?
    The other two are the intake and CAC temps?

    Yes. This was the one that is physically inside the intake manifold held in by one bolt. The replacement has less of a cage around it, so the sensor was more exposed.

    Not sure where CAC temp comes from. I thought that was IAT2. Depends which reader you're using.

    CAC and IAT2 are both from TMAP sensors and read both pressure and temperature. This is how it works on my Liberty CRD which uses a 3 bar Bosch sensor. The one in my Jeep tends to heat soak pretty bad on the manifold, so I like to watch the CAC temperature on my truck(the one prior to the throttle body) to avoid this effect. I have a boost gauge with temp sensor that I have installed just prior to the manifold on my Jeep and will see a 30 degree difference between my sensor and the TMAP in the manifold.
