Thread: charge air temp sensor?

    charge air temp sensor?

    Working on putting a 87 shelby z daytona for a buddy and as I was strapping the water pump on, I knoticed that the intake manifold is charge air temp sensor-less. I got this thing as a rolling shell with the motor on a stand, so i don't know how it was before. Is it supposed to have one? becaue if it is... F$#@ing Damnit!!! I have to pull the head off to put one in the manifold as it is solid there.

    As far as I know, they were on all T2 cars. 1987 model year should be on the rear of the upper plenum. Here's what I did with my shadow, I used an O2 sensor bung welded on the charge pipe (same thread) and lengthened the wires for the sensor. It works perfectly.

    You can drill the hole on the car, just use a vacuum to suck up chips while you do it. Even if you get a couple in there, no biggie, it won't do any harm.

    shart. The car didnt come with a 2 piece. It came with a once piece intake on it w/no sensor. I guess I'll try to put one in there..... Damn!
