    When I was shopping around for tunes about a year ago, I noticed the upgraded 3-bar Map sensor was about a $50 - $60 part. Now that I finally have my tuner ready to go, I need this sensor. Upon doing a quick Google search, I came across the recommended part number (AA5Z9F479-D), but this is nearly double the price as I remember!

    Did the price really jump up in the last year, or is my memory fuzzy and I was just imagining the reduced price?

    EDIT- the seller cancelled my order and pulled all the others he had up for sale. I guess he realized he could charge double the price and didn’t want to miss out. Guess I will just see if the local Ford dealerships have one in stock so I can get this thing tuned ASAP.

    That is purely a scam! If you offer it up, better be ready to take the hit.

    Yep, everyone figured out the 3.5 and now the 3 bars are going wild.
