Default I need a gauge to measure intake charge temp

Hi,

I am looking for a gauge that can read the intake charge temp - I would guess with a range around -20 to 200 F...would prefere degrees F. I haven't found anything like this, most of the guages I find for this range are either external temp or water. I need one with a sender that can read the airflow temp the way EGT does.

Any help?

Thanks!

Note: I find that none of the technical forums seems quite appropriate to post so I posted it here becuase I have an STi motor. Maybe engine mgmt?

Can't help, but when the Subaru tech was diagnosing problems on my STI his instrument (black box) showed inlet temperature so I'm sure it's possible and might be something that can be simply plumbed into the car's electronics. perhaps the sensor is already there. Hwy 61

Delta Dash or a Subaru OBDII reader will show intake charge temp at the MAF sensor.

Try the coolingmist website. I'd post a link but I don't have enough posts yet. I'm sure you can get it somewhere else, but I haven't seen it anywhere.

This should go in the electrical forum, but I appreciate your thinking ahead. Search for "Type K thermocouple" here and on google as that might be the ticket.

Any kind of thermometer should work. Note that the Subaru OBDII sensor does read intake charge, and you can log it with most EM systems.. however, it reads it PRE-BOOST. If you want something to read post boost, you will have to plumb it yourself.

You need something like this:

Kingpin (a NASIOC vendor) has a kit like this also, but I can't find it on their web page.

cheap solution would be to go get one of those indoor/outdoor electronic thermometers with the lead you run out the window.

You can run the lead under the engine bay and in the intake. However I don't know the range on the thermometer.

i dont know about the rexes, but my 04RS has the sensor in the airbox. i know because it was a PITA to modify the cobb cai to still utilize it. so i know it is there. as for the guage if i am not mistaken, a friend of mine has an lcd readout that just plugged in, i think it read that.

doesnt a super afc read that too?

...I've done this for a LONG time now....had 2 for a while.......and both the gauges that I used(2 different brands----easier to remember which is measuring what ) read to 155F.....I clipped the probe to the outside of the filter screen on my short ram filter....works great.....maxes out if I sit for a while in traffic.....

This is what I did; Radioshack thermometer. Drilled a hole in my IC hose which leads into the intake, inserted the outdoor temp probe, and siliconed it in. It is an awesome tool to have and easy to do. Downside is it does stop reading above 155F...but either way if you're that hot you know it's in heat soak condition. And even so, once you start up and let it idle that cools it down within range quickly.
