Actually it's the HFCM and that is the Horizontal Fuel Conditioning Module that is down under the driver's side seat along the frame rail. It incorporates several functions found in various locations on the 7.3L engine such as a pre filter (10 micron), water separator, fuel heater, fuel pump and the DTRM functions of the mixing chamber.

That's because somebody has bastardized the term. Ford calls it the Manifold Intake Air Heater (MIAH), and lots of folks drop the "M" and make it IAH.

We also have an Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor, but folks usually don't call it the AIT sensor. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif[/img]
