Re: Temprature question

I have run the same gauge in the head and the manifold and get the same reading from both places... I have read many times there is a 10 deg difference with the manifold being lower but it didn't test out for me.

The way I see it, the water/coolant is flowing through the block and heads and out the thermostat housing to the rad core. The heads are physically hotter than the manifold but the manifold isn't going to wick the heat out of the water/coolant that just came from the heads!

Re: Temprature question

My Car consistently show about 15 degrees higher in the head than intake. Obviously the rpm...amount of water flow changes that some...idle maybe be 20 degrees higher in head vs cruising closer to 10. But always higher. I have sensors in both due to needed one for EFI and another for gauge.
