Plumbing so far is pretty well hidden:
Now onto the temp gauge and sender to determine how well it'* working, and if I have problems. Gotta turn this into a probe that can be inserted into the 1/8" NPT hole I've already drilled and tapped (and temporarily plugged) in the LIM:
Remember the plug I already drilled out (in the Meet topic in Your Ride)? Here it is. I drilled out the inside pocket to slightly larger than the 7/32" outside diameter of the brass tubing:
Then drilled the hole through the square end the same as the inside diameter of the brass tubing:
Then soldered the two together, and insert the temp probe:
The wires will be sealed into the tube the entire length of the probe.
They'll go to this:
It will replace my voltmeter above the trans temp gauge on my A-Pillar, and the voltmeter will go to the center console for periodic checks if needed (front radar detector warns me of low voltage).

A perfect candidate. The highest post-rotor temps recorded on the silverbullet is 180 degrees. This will tell me how well the intercooler works, and be an indication to me later if something goes wrong with it (pump failure, leak, etc).
