Mini boots, do you mean 10 and 11 in the harness diagram? Oil pressure sender (10) is not in the intake, but the water temperature sender (11) is in front of the number 5 injector, there should be a threaded hole for it.

yes you got it the mini boots i , the temp sender for some reason there is no hole for it in my new manifold , i thought was very strange.I think the manifold is from a explorer.I was thinking of drilling and tapping a hole into a coolant passageway

my bad i figured it out , these holes are the same thread, it is the act sensor that does not have a hole to go into in the new manifold.I heard you can relocate it into the air intake tube without any problems have any of you guys done that before??

yes and yes it won't cause a problem if you put it into the intake ducting before the throttlebody .
