    Gauging Interest: "Cheaper" Oil Temp and Water Temp sensor installing options

    I'm talking to a company that would consider making more affordable ways of mounting water/oil temp sensors.

    For example...a sandwich adapter at the oil filter costs in the neighborhood of at least $100....who knows how much a water temp sensor adapter costs....

    My focus is the Defi BF series, but it should include other brands also.

    Let me know what you think...only because the company prefers not to do one-off things that will cost an arm & a leg...

    For my clarification

    You want ONE adaptor that can get the water and oil temp simultaneously?

    Hmmm... you could try blowing out your head gasket and mix the two fluids... Kidding...

    Is this a piece that you envision that would be as 'bolt on' as possible as well (I.E. Dont run any oil or coolant lines)?

    I tapped my upper rad hose with a greddy adaptor for $38...

    I have oil temp and oil pressure senders that I'm waiting to mount. I plan on getting a water temp gauge sometime soon. What exactly are you planning, tan?
