Great Job at the bargaining table man
120 bucks is worth it when you know the job will be done right and everything works properly.

A broken coolant temp sensor that barely clears the flange:
It'* actually a mm past the flange, not in between the flange and the LIM (bad angle)

For your ECT, just get a brass NPT 45 for it. Take the ECT to the plumbing store to match up the threads. I did something similar for my trans temp transducer.

It sounds like good advice but i'm not exactly sure what you mean.
What does NPT stand for?
The flange really isn't a big deal. i can rotate it more but i just don't feel like messing with it right now.
As far as the ECT sensor goes, i've got a spare that i'm going to swap in when i've got everything taken apart within the next month or so. This one is in there pretty good for now though.
Could you explain a little more about what you were suggesting?

Man, driving to and from where i got trashed yesterday/last nite the car felt awesome.
There is a pretty big butt dyno gain, esp. on the highway.
The car runs much smoother now too. I did notice a tiny bit of power loss in the low low-end, like 2k and below. But theres a lot more power in the mid-range and top end with nice smooth acceleration.
These things were a real big [email protected]# to put on but it was worth all the cuts and bruises.
TOG'* ARE AWESOME!!!!!!

NPT stands for national pipe thread. That'* the thread (tapered) style on plumbing/pneumatic/hydraulic fittings, including the hole in the LIM where the ECT goes. You just get a brass 45 degree with male threads on one end, and female on the other. You put the 45 in the LIM, pointing the direction you want, then screw the ECT into it.

Similar to this:


It'* hard to see, but my trans temp sensor now points forward at 45 degrees. The bottom fitting is a 45, although smaller than the one you need.
