New Day New Dilemma: EFI Temp Sensor Location
« on: June 06, 2020, 14:39:09 »

I was so happy to have my dip out on the road today! I had my new FiTech install working, right up until I sprung a coolant leak. Since it is sitting again, I got to thinking about the coolant temperature sensor. The sensor that came with the FiTech fits perfectly where the original charge temp sensor goes, but I don't think location will give me the proper reading for the efi computer. The FiTech temp sensor will not fit in the factory temp sensor location.


Can anyone who has done a FiTech conversion on their dips tell me where the put the temp sensor?

Good News!


I removed the square drive plug that is right next to the thermostat and the EFI temp sensor fit in there perfectly. I got a couple minutes of driving time in before my throttle stuck open.


Just one thing after another with this car. This car is a glutton for punishment.

Use Holley throttle lever and stud for Mopar four barrels. They work perfectly for the FiTech on a Mopar.


I THINK the part numbers are 20-7 and 20-67


Until I switched out mine, the accelerator and kickdown didn't work worth a crap. What huge difference when I switched out these two parts from what I had rigged!!!
