    Operating Temperature GTX

    I've been watching my lake temperature vs engine temperature on my display. Rarely is there 5 degrees difference. So does that mean my engine is running only 5 degree hotter than lake water. If so, mose of my temps are between 65 to 80. Is this correct or is my senso off?

    The temps are lake and air, the MFD does not show engine temp.

    hmmmmm..... Ok one says E temp and the other is L temp. I assumed it was engine and lake.
    Seems weird. Why would I want to know what the air temp is....

    e is environment. It tells the air temp. Most people could care less how hot the engine runs.

    Guess I am in the minority. I want to know how hot it runs. In fact every water cooled engine I have has a temp gauge. Wonder how hard it would be to install one since it already has a sensor of sort.

    the head has a temp sensor on it, they air temp sensor and the engine temp sensor are both thermistors. meaning the internal resistance of the sensor is inversely proportion to the temperature. meaning as the engine/environment gets hotter the resistance decreases, i bet you could look of the wire colors for the input to the gauges from the environment sensor disconnect it and disconnect the engine temp sensor and wire that in. if you really wanted to get tricky you could at a throw switch to where it would open your environment temp circit from the gauges, open the engine temp circuit from the mpem and close the circuit between the engine temp and the gauges

    What I was thinking was taking the "E" sensor out of the hood and installing it in the engine somewhere. Where does the display get the "Lake" temperature?

    I would be weary of drilling into your engine.
