    RedMiata25 Aftermarket Temp Gauge

    I'm looking into buying an alternative gauge to monitor exact temperature. What brands do you recommend? I'm thinking of running an in-line hose adapter.

    I use an AEM. I have an in-line housing that I used in the upper rad hose. If I can find it and you want it, I'll give it to you. Just pm me your address.

    We use longacre gauge in all of our race cars unless the driver upgrades to a racepak style gauge cluster. the sending unit fits into an existing port that is usually blocked off with an allen head plug on the back of the head.

    32mm Inline adapter acquired. Now I'm waiting for a spare top rad hose and the actual gauge. The shipping status hasn't been updated on the gauge and it's been over a week. Once I get it I should be ready to install it. I'm going to be using an fuse tap too instead of splicing into the harness.

    Looking firward to seeing it. Yes, those Add-A-Circuit adapters are far easier and cleaner.
