Marty, Excellent discussion starting here.

The 3.2 motors have a CHT located on the forward side of #3. It mounts under the section of engine tin. Sal (Scarceller) has logged a lot of data from the 3.2 Motronic. He said that 320F is the peak under a high, hill-climbing load. I do not know what AFR the car was running to get them to this temp.

I tried mounting a RTD on the fins of my heads. The problem was that the cooling fan would move so much air that I never read over 130F. Mine was located in the corner of #1 right behind the block-off plate. I wish I had had my heads drilled for a CHT insert.

I have the ability to log CHT with the EFI system. My psuedo-CHT measurement is only used as a warm-up indicator. I am more than willing to experiment if someone can suggest a better mounting location.
Jamie - I can explain it to you. But I can not understand it for you.
