Dougle_turbo Posted April 19, 2020 Share Posted April 19, 2020 (edited) As most of you will know, getting the oil temperature on a 987 Cayman is a difficult affair. Whilst there is an oil temp sensor on the CAN, it's not OBD2 readable. This means you need Durametric or similar is required to read it, which is no good on the move or when on track etc. So I have decided to install a supplementary oil temp gauge, however I need some help on where to install the sender. Ideally somewhere in the sump would be the ideal take off - as thats where it should be hottest. But I have recently changed the oil so would prefer to try a different location. Having had a good look around the engine bay there are two locations that might work - but I'm not sure. The pictures below show the same location on the air filter side of the head. Having taken the hex bolt out there is definitely some sort of oil gallery there. But I'm not sure what's beneath it. There is a similar port on the other head, but it's located a little further back. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks.
