Default Engine air filter proper orientation on housing/box

This probably sounds like a dumb question, but I took the air filter housing apart weeks ago (my car has not been running for a while) and want to make sure I put it back together properly.

2001 SC2 Coupe

The first photo shows the way it is supposed to be, right?

First photo is correct.

Would the top piece even go on the other direction?

Dunno. I didn't even check.

Doesn't fit the wrong way. Doesn't even look like it'd fit the wrong way with the top near the bottom

Make sure you connect the AIT sensor. If not your computer will read -40 degrees F. It will run dead rich and your fuel trim will be way off. You can see the sensor in the first picture you posted. JUST a friendly reminder...

For some reason, I am not getting email notifications on these. What is the AIT sensor? Where is it in my "first photo"? I reconnected a sensor that seems to be on what I would call the intake that goes into this box. My car seems to be running well now.

Edit:
I think I know the answer, but do not have time to edit any photo. I am pretty sure it is reconnected properly.

AIT, air intake temperature sensor.

Review your setup for email notifications in the EDIT OPTIONS and EDIT EMAIL & PASSWORD tabs when clicking User CP.
