Question Need help installing module(chip) into IAT sensor

I recently purchased a module that is to be connected to the two wires for the IAT sensor. I been told the IAT sensor is also with the MAT sensor on the tube from the air filter. If this is correct, could someone tell me which two wires or where I could find a diagram. If its not correct please let me know. While I'm here, my kids are getting me a Volant cold air intake. Is this one of the top brands. Thanks in advance.

This is not what you want to hear.........
Don't go to the trouble. This won't do anything for you, except probably lower your mileage, and end up with modified/damaged wiring.
Those "chips", which are nothing more than a 29 cent resistor, won't do what they claim.

I'd recommend you dispose of the chip you bought. They are usually just a resistor that causes the ECU to get false information from the MAF Sensor. This will damage your engine. Do not use this. These are a common Ebay ripoff that many have sold for years.

For real, and safe results, look into the following true tuner products.

UpRev Osiris or UpRev MailIn Flash (Most popular and versatile)
Bully Dog
Hypertech
Stillen VKPro II

2006 XE CC Pref Pkg BT with AEM Brute Force CAI, PowerAid TB Spacer, TB Reversed Valve ByPass Mod, 2007+ Intake, JBA Headers, MagnaFlow 24" Muffler, 2008+ Rear Axle, Stillen: F & R Sway Bars, Black Diff Cover, Engine Dress Up Kit and 4 pc StreetScene SS Mesh Grille, PRG End Links Street Traction Bars & Shackles, UpRev Osiris Tuner 93 Performance Tuned, 18" SE Rims, Functional Hood Scoop...

Like they say but if you must here's a diagram.
I take no responsibility for anyone's Titan getting messed up.

At least your kids got some sense in getting you the Volant.

As they say, 3 strikes and your out. So I will gladly take the advice of the three replies and not install the module.
I will look into the list that TitanBlue has sent. Thank you all for the advice.
