That's a sensor that I don't have a good diagram to post. If anyone has a nice photo to post, please do so.

This might help -- It's located on the back side of the block and has a single Red/Blu wire connected to it.

Did a little research on that.... should have done it before hand, but oh well. It seems that only obd2 d16s have that... and they are interchangeable with b series.

OBD = on board diagnostics
