BigMike's Big Radio Shack Thermometer
This is the test thermometer that I am currently using to monitor the temperature in and around
my engine compartment.
I mainly have it focused on the airfilter as shown in the below picture.
I bought this electronic thermometer
from my local Radio Shack regularly $19.95 on sale for $9.95! What a bargan. I have seen
electric thermometers on trucks that come by my fathers shop to meet my father or to see his shop as my
father is a famous man in the Toyota 4WD market. I have always thought when I get a car I'm
gonna get one of thoes! Welp here it is in all its $10.73 taxed glory!
What a neet way to monitor temperatures
anywhere on the car as the cord is very long!Do I notice results from the mods that
I have done to reduce engine temperature?
I get around 10-15° F
cooler simply by cutting out thoes dishes!
|Av. Filter Temp before cooling mods:|
Av. Filter Temp after dishes cut out:
Highest record temp while running:
around 140° F while waiting for a long light
all numbers are crunched from above my new direct flow airfilter and about 95-100degres
