    Cat temp block off

    For those of you who dont use the exhaust temp sensor and have installed the chip, a 12mm X 1.25 oil drain will fit right in there. You can get them at your local auto parts store and they usually come with a sealing gasket.

    Another option is to just pull the wire and probe part out of the bung and weld the hole shut and screw the bung back in. Thats what I did, it works great. Three years and no problems.

    Thats a good question.

    I know it adjusts for cyl temps, but not sure about exhaust temps.
