I'll look tomorrow to see if I have any used ones. It will be best to call Sunset and verify the part since some years had a spade connector, others had a round connector.

Wow, thanks Paul. BTW, nice collection (assume all those water cools have the IMS upgrade?).

For all these years (since 1993) I've kept these two huge black 3 ring binders with the entire parts catalogue for my long hood 911. Now I have it online without scanning it. Stupid that I never checked. But still have to keep the original shop manuals I guess

It doesn't say anything about being specific to a turbo or S2, so I am assuming that it's the same part for all the 2.5L models (remember 1st three letters of assume).

Looks like it's about $70 from Porsche (not too bad), $35 elsewhere (but not Pelican: hmm?). That 944 606 201 00 number really helps with the search.

BTW, stupid me. My brother reminded me that I have 4 complete albeit non-running 944s lying around, so I am going to "borrow" the temp switch off of one of those first to see if that corrects the high temp reading. If it does, then I'll buy a new one (and return the 2 spade Bosch version for DME input to Rock as well as the 2 spade Bosch injector style connector I was going to use to retrofit it -- don;t worry, I was going to test the resistance of it first and would have discovered that it was a DME temp sensor).

While I am at it, do you think I should put in the 160F thermostat in as well independent of what happens with the temp gauge? It has moved from Seattle to Austin after, and we all know how snowflakes melt when they get down here from the PNW.

I'd keep the stock temp fan switch and thermostat.

The 98 Boxster has a 2005 Porsche remanufactured motor so yes.

The 01 Boxster has a LNS ceramic IMS bearing that I installed.

The 911 Turbo does not have an IMS. Based on air cooled 911 block.

Please verify the part number with a dealer, there have been lots of issues with getting the correct part number. It could be the $30 one in my previous post.

If it helps sourcing one, in addition to the Porsche part number given above, it is stamped "VDO Germany", "120 (degree) C Max", "6-24V", "801/1/50", "1 87"

In addition to the metal tube entering the air duct near the throttle body, there is a plastic elbow entering from below near the air sensor. With the clamps removed they should come out, though a little Wurth Rubber Care used like penetrating oil might help (plus it's good for the rubber). The engine in the picture I posted is a salvage yard unit out of an '87 924S. The idiots removed all of the soft pieces with a hammer, bolt cutters and the fork lift arms.

To post an image, paste the web address of your picture between the [img] and the [/img]

Thanks Paul and Daniel.

I'll be sure to confirm that the sensor is the spade type and not the post type.

Thanks again for saving me the indignity of splicing in a two spade connector onto the wiring harness where none belonged.

Once I temporarily cannibalize one of the 944s (they are all normally aspirated versions), I'll post what I found out.

Just to clarify, the Porsche part number Paul posted is the exact number stamped into the sensor in my photo, which came out of an '87 924S engine. The salvage '87 924S engine I have has the same sensor as does the '88 short block I bought new from Porsche (which is now in the car because the previous engine went BOOM in a most spectacular fashion).
