Head temp is the ideal source for engine temperature.
The 3.2L Carrera sensor has a M10x1.0mm thread pitch, we use it and make adapter blocks for our 911 Turbo EFI conversions:
TurboKraft Inc : Cylinder Head Temperature Sensor Set [930 606 915 TK] - $198.00

There are also K-type thermocouple sensors that are installed between the spark plug and head, popular in the air-cooled VW aftermarket, maybe a simple option for your application.

The temp sensor in the photo above is the charge air (post-intercooler) temperature sensor, similar to those used on the 993T and millions of VW-Audi turbo engines. It bolts down to a machined surface and seals bymeans of an o-ring. For a DIY conversion, a threaded bodied sensor with tapered threads (ex: NPT) would be more versatile.
