iv got an 05 rx and while a buddy and i were installing an aem cold air intake (which makes the car sound even more badass by the way) i noticed that the other end of a sensor connecting to the first spark plug led no where and appeared to possibly have been cut at some point (i bought the car used). From the instructions for installing the intake the other end of the sensor is SUPPOSED to attach to the factory airbox, but the installation gets rid of the airbox anyway, so the sensor wouldnt have anything else to plug into, at least that i know of, so im wondering if this is really a problem or not. Any thoughts/ideas? peace.

yeah sorry that was a tad confusing but no, the sensor was never attached to the airbox, so theres nothing dangling. like, there was no other half to this connector. actually i thought it was weird because theres electrical tape on the part attached to the spark plug...
lol sorry for my inital mix up...that's just the coil-packs (there are 4).....glad we codl help out
with your new intack did you remember to cap off the vacume line that goes into the intake (right behind the throtal body..and on the bottom portion of the the intake manifold)? it had to do with the vafid or what ever it's called that opens up at high rpms (it's located in the front bumper)
the vacume line wasn't very big at all...all i would think is a slight idle issue. so if it's running smooth i doubt anything is wrong. the racingbeat kit came wiht a silicone cap to put where the line used to go so i'm sure the aem one did too
