Default Is 128* IAT Temperature Normal?

2000 GT with KB 1.7L T/S which relocates the IAT sensor into the KB intake manifold. IAT temps average about 112 but can get up to 128 or so. Are these normal temps?

Low? Inlet Air Temp... lower is better isn't it? I was wondering if it was too high.

Of course lower is better, my point was that it's lower than what I would expect running 9 psi--I.e. a "good thing"...
