    Engine Temperature Gauge

    What is everyone using for an engine temperature gauge? I need one because I'm going open loop and think it would be a good thing to keep an eye one. I was looking at the Dynotune temp gauge, any input?
    Thanks Zach

    A simple automotive oil temperature gauge works for me and is relatively inexpensive. I never looked into the price or quality of the dynotune though..

    How did you hook the gauge up? The Dynotune comes with a probe to read the temp, were could I put this? I think it is 1/8" NPT.

    The automotive gauge came with a probe too. I threaded it into a T adapter right after the head. Your location may differ depending on how you route the water.

    Here's a quick picture of what it used to look like. The gold colored piece is the T adapter.

    The Autometer 5469 low temp gauge looks like a good choice also. It reads from 60-210. It is what I purchased to use with my open loop plate setup.

    Fizzle do you have Rapid accelerations open loop kit or is yours different? I noticed on the adapter that comes off the head and goes to the oil cooler you get with his kit there is a threaded boss. I guess I could put the probe there.
