John,

I think there would be too air blowing around the intake manifold stud, so that the temperature would very too much as car and engine speed changes. You could try what I did and slip the wire terminal between the fan shroud and the cam tower for cylinder #3 forward most shroud bolt. Use a larger washer on top of the shroud to compress the wire terminal tightly against the cam tower. I see running temperatures between 140* to 179* in logs once warmed up depending on outside temperatures and engine loading. I have not run the car in cold weather around freezing, so the running temperature may go below 140*. I cut WUE to 100% by 120*.
