tranny side port 'vs' computer

I have an 01 EX 7.3 auto. I have a BD X monitor that ties into the computer for the tranny temp. Is this reading going to be the same as installing a sender into the tranny side port? If not what will the differences be?

i dont think so. I have the x-monitor as well, tranny temps seems to jump around sometimes. today it dropped 20deg in about 2 seconds, raised 15deg in 2 seconds earlier, really weird

in all i think the sender in the port is the most accurate

read up on the x-monitor, its not accurate until 140+

trans temps tend to be about 100deg over ambient temp

I had the X- Monitor and now I have analog ones with the sender IN the tranny... BIG difference....
the with XM, I was seeing an average of 140-150* empty on the Hiway.... with the analogs I noticed on my last trip PULLING a 8K trailer it never broke 130 UNLESS I was stop and go in town... ambient temps were pretty much the same as they have been....

also with the XM, once I would get out of town it's like it didnt want to cool down AT ALL! now I notice that once I get out and cruise it slowly cools down.... on my last trip with that trailer, I had about 100 miles of open road with some hills and such... when I left town, I was at 147ish and by the time I got to my destination it was at 106.... I know seems kinda low but I dont have that bypass thing and the ambient was in the low 30's...

early 99 cclb srw 4x4, auto, intake, exhaust, and a bunch of other asthetics to make it look better...


*SOLD* early 99 cc drw 2wd auto, PMT2 pcm with PHP tunes, exhaust w/ 6" tip, MSP intake, AD's, late 99 conversion, gauges, Terminator modded 17* HPOP, and some other pointless stuff like the zoodad, 6.0IC, etc etc....

499K original miles when sold...
