Also, thank you to rayzazoo for setting me straight about the plug, and not just selling me a cable after asking for one.
For those still needing a black to grey converter, I do have 4 left. I think this will be my last batch. PM me if you're interested.

So if I have a 2010 SRT8, it's safe to say I have a black plug?

Yup, more than likely. The grey plug connectors were found mostly on 09 R/Ts and the 2011+ models when they redesigned the air box.

It's an easy check. The black connectors (usually on SRT 08-10 and some 09-10 R/Ts) is in the middle. The grey connectors (on some 09 R/Ts and all 2011+ MY) is on the far right. If you have the middle one, then the plug and play converter cable is necessary in order to use the new long IAT sensor. If not, and you already have the grey, you can go to your dealer parts and pick up the new long IAT sensor for $6.

My car is a dog in 85+ degree weather, esp with the A/C on, so I was really excited about trying the new 392 IAT sensor PN 05149279AB. It was $3.50 and plugged right into my gray connector and into my RoboFab air tube. Today was the real test as I go home for lunch, the car heat soaks, and I drive back in 90+ degree humid temps. The new sensor really made a difference I could feel. This is in the stock mounting location. Eventually I'll get the extension cable and relocate to the air box.

Thanks for the research guys as the heat soaking was one of my biggest complaints about the car. I can't wait to see if cooler weather performance is better as well.

(I wanted to put something with a "heat soak" subject in this section for exposure.)
Wait a minute, you just bought the regular 392 IAT sensor and it plugs into both the grey plug and the intake tube? I'm confused. Why does Rayazzo have these specially made adapters? Do you have to splice the wires and do it that way, or is it a direct plug into the grey plug (on 09 10 RTs.) Thank you. I am very much interested in this mod.

I don't have a modified intake and the 392 IAT Sensor plugged right into the stock connector and mounting location on my '10 R/T.
The adapters he makes can solve issues with a different connector, the need for a longer wire to relocate the sensor further from the stock location (some CAI's I assume), or both.

For the price I figured I had nothing to lose.

The 5.7s appeared to come equipped with the gray IAT connector from '09 on up.

The '08-'10 SRT 6.1s had the black connector and the newer design (long) 392 IAT sensor wouldn't mate to the black connector, so it was necessary to fabricate an adapter that allow the new IAT sensor to be installed.

It seems the 6.1s were really prone to heatsoak and they'd pull timing and lose some top end / mid range power.

Thank you for the clarification. So since I have the grey plug (I have a '10 R/T), I can just buy the 392 sensor from the dealership and plug and play? Very nice, I will have to stop by Baxter next week and get me one of those. Would love to battle against heat soak.
