ok, only 2013 info is available by Ford at this time so,, to be sure no changes, can you tell me what wire colors at the MAF and do you have a small sensor mounted between the air filter and the throttle body in the air intake assembly

I have 4 wires coming out of my MAF SENSOR yellow/purple, light blue, green, purple/grey or lightblue
they telling me that my IAT SENSOR is built in with my MAF SENSOR

Violet/Grey is the IAT and the Blue is the signal return for the IAT
