    Default fitting a BBQ temp sensor to a KAD

    i fitted a Sendowtek Barbecue Thermometer with Dual Probes, sensors and cables can deal with 250C+
    bluetooth interface with android simple, app has custom alarms and alarm goes off if bluetooth connection lost

    may be worth collating temperatures for various setups and conditions ?

    KAD 44 in Aquador 26, 3400kg, 3000 revs, 20 knots, turbo - exhaust elbow junction 120C, air into intercooler 110C

    Air into charge air cooler looks good, your exhaust elbow looks very hot. Where have you put the sensor?

    the exhaust temp is fixed onto the metal ring clamp in between the turbo and the exhaust elbow = the bit where there is no water cooling. thought that would be the hottest bit.

    So what’s it really showing you? The turbo gets hot, we know that.

    I would measure intake air after the intercooler. That’s what goes into the engine after all. If that rises then you can check air filter and intercooler.

    As for after the engine, stick it on the elbow. At least that will give some indication of cooling water flow issues.

    Measuring egt has been done to death and not achievable with a bbq setup
