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.
Hi Dennis

What resistance value was the thermistor? Was it a 10K? I was thinking I might build one of these.
Here is a good video on thermistors.
