eot probe location?

Purchased ISSPro EV2 ect and eot gauges . Where is everyone installing the Probe sensor for the EOT gauge? Is is true that if you install in inthe oil filter cap , you dont get true readings fdue to it not being in constant oil flow? Is it possible to steal signal from the oem sensor?

Personally ive read both ways for the oil cap. some say it works great some say it doesnt.

I had the same problem when i bought my gauges. i ended up for the time being using the oil cap. and i can say from comparing with the scangauge, its always off and doesnt show true readings. its slower to respond and will give general temp readings but it does go up if temps start going up but not as fast as the oem sensor.

I am working on figuring out how to create a T fitting for the OEM sensor and the gauge sensor so i can read what the computer reads on my gauge. I have to find the thread sizes and all the info i had on it and start working on it again.

I use the billet cap for oil temp, and checked the temp against my AE, no difference in temp. Oil goes thru the oil cooler first, then thru the filter, then to the OE oil temp sensor.

This link will give you your info you'll need if you want to "T" off the stock OE oil sensor.

Thank you for the info, If you would. Please share your findings with the rest of us. Do you think it could be possible to use a wire tap off the oem sensor and cut the gauge sensor totally out of the equation, Just a thought?

Only if the guage would operate on the same resistances as the PCM does.

I think he is planning on putting a "T" in the oil port and running the oem sensor as well as the sensor for his aftermarket gauge.

You just can't cut out the OEM oil sensor out of the equation. The PCM needs to see the oil temp sensor in order to control the fan clutch, EGR,VGT,GP,fuel quantity, and timing.

You really only have a couple of choices for aftermarket oil gauges sensor locations. Billet cap, "t" off OEM location, oil psi test port, or OBDII reading.

By what he wrote he is trying to not use the sensor that comes with the gauge and instead use the factory sensor for inputting to his guage and I was stating that the only way that would work would be if the PCM used the same resistances as the gauge.

Didn't realize you were responding to the wire tap.
