cheapest way to measure oil temperature?


Recommended Posts

I want something to give me some indication on oil temperature?

just so i know when i am up to temperature and when i need to drive soft for a bit to cool down?


any ideas would be great, want to spend as little as possible, also i am not confident in drilling into anything so surface mount or something through the oil caps would be better! 


Thank you in advance :)

You can get temp gauges for not much money, there are fitting kits available specifically for imprezas and fitting guides on line. You could pay a garage to do it for you. It'd work out far cheaper than a new engine :-)

You can get sandwich plates that fit between filter and block or adapted sump plugs that the sensor goes through,

Most people get an adaptor that sits in one of the blocked of oil ways on top of the block. Lots of options
