    Thermocouples...

    The exhaust housing for my turbo sits a little too close to the thermocouple ports on the exhaust manifold causing them to foul on the first 3 exhaust runners.

    Are there any low profile / different styles available that can be used in place or the standard 90 degree K type?

    I've had a good look through Mouser ect but wasn't able to find anything too specific.

    I am not too sure how fragile these are to be carefully bent where they need to be so not overly keen on doing that just yet.

    Even worse with the turbo beanie on, but I can see how a slight bend could fix the issue.

    You don't want to just weld them on the bottom? I just did this on my s15 as there is heaps of room on the bottom.

      Also I get these custom made at a place in SA, I can't remember the name but can get it if you want some different ones.

          Mine get awfully close but clear, although I think #3 I had to rotate a bit.

          Main problem you will get is radiant/residual heat from turbo will artificially raise temps on those cylinders

            As I was expecting I have used a spare t4 flange as a spacer to get the exhaust housing higher so it cleared the sensors - looks terrible.

              any custom thermocouple supplier will be able to make you whatever probe length you like. mark a probe when inserted to desired depth then order it maybe 10mm longer than that if you have the room.

              otherwise, this might work for you?

                  Ok so I didn't realise that guy doesn't usually sell to the public, you need to go to onetemp as the middle man.

                    Thanks, noticed there's an office in Brisbane so I'll give them a call.
