Code 13 help

So I just bought a 2009 kfx 450r. Finally got to ride a bit this weekend and after about 5 mins when I went wot it would cut out and fall on its face the far left light came on. I checked the code and it came back a 13. It has cams, crank, athena head and high comp piston. The air box is open. It came with a tuner but isn't installed. I did find a connection by the air box that isn't t connected. My question is where is the intake air temp sensor and if the air box lid is gone will that make it throw the code?

Yeah looks like it was broke off inside the intake. Ordering a new one. Thank you. Would that cause it to out like it's starving for fuel when I go over half throttle? I'm thinking it needs a tuner with all the mods like cams
