i put a custom intake on my 95 se 3.0 and got the iat sensor on to but when i go to start the car it just dies but when i start it with the sensor unplugged it runs and also maybe thsi is because of the sensor off but the car stalls out once in awhile

I wouldn't think the IAT would have that much to do with your car running or not. I would pay more attention to your Mass Air Flow sensor. Try wiggling the wiring harness around, maybe lightly tapping on it with the back of a screwdriver to see if it makes any difference.

Before the O2 sensors warm up, the IAT and MAF both work to determine the A/F ratio.

Use a mulitmeter and check the resistance across the IAT. It should be about 37,300 Ohms at 68F. The IAT is a thermistor, so the lower the temperature, the higher the resistance.
