I am actually going to make a hole to put the bung in. Then I get to weld the bung to my pipe. After that, I get to stick my temp sensor in it. But before I do any of that, I need to make sure that it goes in far enough that the tip sticks out. Sounds pretty fun right?

Oh ya, everything I said is spot on for what I am going to do to. I just put my sensor in the bung and the tip sticks out. So good there. Now to just drill the hole and weld it in place. Things are about to heat up, literally. Its 90° out (or 32°C for you other people) and I get to put my welding suit on....

Bung has been welded. It's been a while since I have welded aluminum but apparently I still got it!

The bung thanks you!

Didnt have any time last night to put it back together so that will happen later today. Then testing time! It will be nice to log actual intake temps now.

I got the evo professionally detailed today. 100% worth it since I dont have the time and 100% needed it. The paint is silky smooth now and shines great!

Thanks guys. It really needed it. It had no reflection before. Now its like a mirror! I normally dont like paying people to work on my car when its something I can do myself but this was worth it!

I am not really sold on ceramic coating just yet. Some people say its great and some stay its just not worth it. And then some say once its on, its on. The only way to get it off is to sand it off. That doesnt sound fun. For now, I will stick to normal wax. Its not like my Evo gets out much anyways. Just hides away in the garage.

I am not going to coat the car mind you because of what I read and like you said. Going to experiment on Black trim etc.

Ahh, got it. Well let me know how it goes then! I have some black trim that has seen better days. Mostly plastic stuff though.
