For those who installed a CHT gauge

Did you install CHT with the sensor located under the spark plug? If so, what sensor you used and what did you have to do to make it fit? Seemed there is virtually no room for the sensor in the spark plug hole.

Here is the sensor I am thinking of.

that will fit... looks like mine... you just need to bend the end [with the wire on it] towards the top of the plug...

I also have something similar to this. No issues fitting it. I actually made my own using regular K type thermocouple wire, and used a large ring terminal purchased from a marine supply store.

Mooney, which cylinder(s) are you monitoring and what temps do you observe. I'm curious to see if we are in the same ballpark. I monitor #6, and it typically hangs around 150 celcius at top gear highway cruise. Gets hotter on boost and also runs hotter in the summer on the 90-100 ambient days.
