ok so i was wondering...... i want to monitor as many things as humanly possible when it comes to my engine. and one thing that gets neglected is the intake air temperature. i wanted a very in expensive way to monitor how hot the air is going into my car so i was at a local auto store and came across the little digital thermometers that u mount in your car and the sensor probe wire is attached to it. i was thinking that if i mounted this in the charge pipe i could see the air temp.even a barbacue thermometer. they are like 10 bucks. is this completly stupid or does it make sense?

It would probably work if you figured out some kind of way of securing it in the charge pipe to keep it from blowing out under boost.If they made a screw in version of what your talking about that would be sweet.

You may want to look into this also since you want to moniter everything

Im thinking about buying that.With that and my zeitronix I can watch pretty much everything without a laptop since my zt-2 does egt, boost, and afr by itself.The tunerview does everything else.Timing duty cycle,iat, ect.

thats pretty cool. and i will definatly be getting that in the future. cant afford it now unfortunatly. i will update as to how i will attach it inside the pipe. thats gonna be the tricky part. if it wasnt boosted i could just drill a hole and silicone it in but with boost it will blow out.

I think the problem there would be that it wouldnt react fast enough to get the accuracy of the factory temp sensor. because i have wanted to do this as well, without hooking my laptop up every time.

we used a palm pilot to tune my brothers 3000gt vr4, it was very simple to hook up and it tells you everything that you need boost pressure, vaccum, ect, iat, o2, battery charge etc. basically like a car scanner. just some ideas for the self innovator.
