John,
I actually made my CLT sensor. I ordered a couple of NTC thermistors from Mouser (for a spare) and mounted the element in the wire hole of a 3/8" wire terminal. I epoxied the element ends to secure in the terminal. I heat shirked the individual wire leads, brought them together, and heat shirked the leads together. I installed the wire terminal under the fan shroud at the forward most bolt that secures the fan shroud to the cam tower for the #1 cylinder. Before installing, I did a temperature calibration using ice water up to boiling water. The sensor has read over 225* in the car during hot restarts. When I first start the car (cold), the IAT and the CLT read exactly the same.
