    Default PC modders - Temp Gauges?

    What's the best way to lengthen the temp probes?

    Even if not on a PC, guessing there like most probes, 2 wires that can be lengthened is that right?

    It's PC ones I've used but I'm fitting to the car... That's why I need the probes lengthening, there only 50cm at min.

    I have the same ones on my pc, If you extend the wires too long it will effect the accuracy of the gauge, the amount will be determined by the the resistance caused by the longer wire and wire connections, but we are only talking very small amounts.

    Cheers, what wire can be used?

    Accuraccy not an issue to within a few degrees, only putting a probe before the MAF and one in the cam breather pipe before the catch can... Should have bought 3 to butcher a tester...

    I added about 30cm using speaker cable and it made no difference.
