Turner Motorsport Oil Temperature Sensor Flange

Show more

The Turner Motorsport Oil Temperature Sensor Flange was designed to get your oil temperature from the best possible location: the sump. Most of the factory and aftermarket sensors are located after the oil pump, which does not give you an accurate temp reading of the oil that is actually lubricating the engine. At the factory temp sensor location the sensor picks up heat not only from the oil stream, but also from the oil pump and housing which will skew the reading. Other aftermarket adapters can be give inaccurate readings from their location and/or design limitations. And may require making unnecessary modifications. By relocating the sensor to the oil sump it reduces clutter and sits flush against the bottom of the oil pan to avoid potential clearance issues. Testing that we have done on and off the track shows that the sump location is the most accurate. We accomplish this by removing the factory oil level sensor or block off plate and using the existing hole and bolt pattern on the oil pan with no additional modifications. Any sensor with an M12 x 1.50mm thread can be used in the flange. 

Note that removing the factory oil level sensor will trigger the low oil fault/warning light. There's no elegant way around this but since the Temp Flange is considered a race-only part we assume you will be checking your own oil level anyway or be using a stand-alone dash/engine management system that does not track oil level. And having the most accurate oil temp is more important.
