Is the IAT2 necessary

I just bought a 2006 6.0 F250. It has an aftermarket Green filter and box that came with the truck. The IAT2 sensor is missing and the plug is just sitting there. Does the truck not need it? I have a P0299 code and was wondering if it had something to do with the sensor not being there.

The IAT2 is built into the MAF on trucks that use the MAF. My truck for example is a 2005 that uses the IAT2 sensor but NOT the MAF. I have a dead-headed MAF connector, it just dangles there with a plug stuck in it.

So long as you have one or the other, you are good to go.
