I have done something similar, haven't been able to test it yet.

This is very interesting, can't wait to see how your home made one works, I may do the same...

what epoxy do you use to sink a thermistor into one of those lugs? & where to get it? thanks, matt

I used JB weld and I put the Thermistor in very thin heat shrink first so it didn't short out.

That is a 0-300deg C sensor.
Most engine temp sensors only go to 150C so no good for detecting and dealing with overheat conditions in the VW aircooled.
Since they are expensive and several end users decided to use them as grounding wires :roll:
we now use either the PLX cht thermocouple setup or for the cheap ass route just a M10 regular air temp sensor screwed to the tin pointing at the fins-works just fine

Thermistor is fine for warmup.
Thermocouple is used by zero OEMs, so follow their r&d lead.

OEM's are usually cheap baztards and have no real need to measure and monitor temp above 150c
so will stay away from the extra complexity and cost of thermocouple circuitry.
Of course thermocouples are widely used throughout industry/aerospace where greater temperature range and accuracy
are needed.
I'd like to see someone measure EGT with a thermistor :lol:

So you do closed loop EGT? Hmmm. People need to get their cars running, not worry about aerospace. Ever seen a shuttle launch delayed because of a bad TC reading? :)

Anyway, don't make this complicated.

It might be complicated for you to understand but the guy asked a question and I answered it.
No one asked you to butt in with your OEM R+D and space shuttle BS

I will use the most accurate sensors I can afford regardless if the OEM's use them or not. This is my motor not theirs. The motors they test in the R&D Dyno room are TC'ed up the yang. My motor is a one off so I consider it R&D, it needs to be monitored the best I can afford.
