Default JDM B16a ITR intake manifold swap help

Hello everyone, yesterday I swapped out my old JG Edelbrock intake manifold (that came on the car when I bought it last summer) for an Integra Type R manifold. Near the end of the install I noticed an extra port on the 2nd runner on the manifold, which I learned to be for an IAT (intake air temperature) sensor. Where is the IAT sensor on my B16a located? I've done some research regarding this and haven't found anything on the sensor's location. I can start the car and it will idle and run fine, I'll blip the throttle and it will catch its idle again, it drives around my neighborhood well too, but whenever I take it out of gear and brake to a stop the car doesn't catch idle and dies. When I turn it back on the idle tries to die out too. Help? Thanks.

The Em1 B16a? It might be on the intake arm? I know it is on my EX coupe. It looks like it from this image

Sorry I have the JDM SiR Gen 2 B16a, should have been more specific, it also has an after market short ram air intake so the only thing on my intake pipe is a PCV port.

After more research I've come to believe that my car isn't running an Intake Air Temperature sensor, and the car still won't idle after driving so it dies. Apart from that issue it runs and drives regular. Please help.

You need to connect the IAT circuit. The two wire style plug will have a red/yellow wire and a green/white OR green/black wire in it. Find that plug... lengthen it if necessary to reach the sensor on the intake runner... and plug it in. Also make sure that the sensor itself isn't damaged. Check OHM resistance or remove it and look at the end to make sure it isn't burned or melted off.

Thank you, I actually fixed my idle issue a few days ago by backing out the idle set screw a turn or so, and going through the process of pulling an IAT sensor off another Honda at the local junkyard. Thanks for the input!
