    Question Temp Sensor In Intercooler Pipe. Possible?

    I Want To Put A Temp Sensor On The Off Side Of The Intercooler And Was Wondering If This Is Possible. Are The Pressures To High In The Pipes And Am I Just Asking For Leaks Or Can It Be Done??

    It really hasn't been done, but if you seal it like the sensors in the manifold, you should be fine...

    Some would like to see the temp of the air BEFORE the IC (maybe mount it in the end cap) and AFTER the IC (maybe mount it in the block off)...

    just put a bung in your pipe that goes to the throttle boday and add the sensor below. i plan on doing this before next season. once yu have the sensor you just need a way to read it. so either get a hand held unit or get a data logger.

    i think it is in the speedo.

    the stock system measures a.i.t. but you can only acces it from buds. i read somewhere that someone had done what you are thinking and rewired the harness so that the air temp sensor on the meter showed air intake temo instead of outside air.

    Well, it has an L temp and an E temp. I understood those to mean "Lake" and "Environment". Then again, that doesn't make much sense either. Later I though that perhaps E meant "exhaust" and is reading the exhaust just out the water box. Either way, there are 2 temp readouts in the display and only 1 of them is sensed in the gauge cluster. Where is the other sensor?

    the e temp sensor is located in the small storage compartment and wires directly to the dash display. the m.a.t.s is in the manifold right next to the blockoff. i wonder if it would be as simple as splicing into the manifold one and sendind the signal to the dash?
