As i'm getting a new engine built I decided to look into some CHT gauges to see what is going on with the engine and not cook it. I know most people will use oil temp gauges and prob VDO or an equilivent standard where you don't actually know the actual temperature but are looking for changes. I wanted a little more exact info, and I didn't want to rely on me seeing a change, so I looked to the aviation sector. I eventually found these threads on TheSamba: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=423765 https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=301743&highlight=mgl avionics Now these threads are a few years old, but it's got plenty of info and not much will have changed. The gauges have been updated over the years and now in my view the best one for my needs is the MGL Vega EMS-1 I bought mine from here: https://www.parts4aircraft.com/mgl-vega-ems-1-c2x27370916 I bought this one instead of just the CHT gauge in case I wanted to use the other functions in the future I thought I would start this thread to record the journey I take to install it. Currently the gauge is in the post from the UK, I now need to buy the wires and decide do I just want the CHT or use the rest of the functions as well. The gauge will be going in the right hand pod of the dash.
