IAT sensor melting

whats up guys i got a 1997 honda prelude base 5 speed. And as the title says the iat sensor keeps burning. My scanning device says it is reading 408 degrees, even when i unplug the sensor. I have tried following the wire back about six inches and it looks fine. The ect sensor reads normal too i read the iat depends on that for something also. I even checked the ecu for burnt terminals and ****. My car is also running ****ty like barely rev to 3k rpm, then when you get over 3k rpm it seems to come out of it kinda. Any help would be amazing.

Re: IAT sensor melting

For that area of the intake manifold to get that hot it seems there is some combustion going on in there where there definitely shouldn't be. (assuming it is not getting hot from external like an exhaust leak) The only way that could happen is if the valve timing is off. Check all the timing, mostly the timing belt between the crank and the cams. I would also check the valve clearances too.
