Default IAT Sensor Location

I have a chip that needs to be plugged into the IAT sensor on my 93 honda accord LX 2door 5 sp. 2.2L
We have a cold air intake added.
Where is the sensor located?

I sincerely hope you're not speaking of one of those EBay Special Performance chips that have been circulating of late. Absolute waste of money & Time.
But, If you insist; #21 as Amckee pointed out.

It is an Ebay special...Do they not work. If this is the case, I won't bother putting it in.

It is no more than a fancily packaged resistor, meant to artificially shift the fuel curve by changing the value the ECM sees from the IAT sensor. It's amazing not only how many of these things they sell, and how much they get for a $0.30c resistor.
Stay away from those Turbonator 30hp for $69.95 specials you see advertised also. Another snake oil product offered by companies lower on the evolutionary scale that Ronco.......

I was told by the Honda dealer that the IAT sensor was a plug near the throttle body with one black wire and one red wire coming out of it. Now I'm really confused, can somebody please verify which is correct. Thanx and sorry for the confusion

My information is direct from the Honda on-line Parts Catalog. Can't get more accurate than that.
And besides, his idea of "Close" might not agree with yours.
