I would like to monitor the temperature in the airbox of my 914. There is already a port on the airbox (1/8 NPT) for doing this. My problem is that I cannot find a source for the sensor. Dynon states the following in their installation manual:

"Rotax supplies one Skykit Air Box temperature sensor on the 914 for connection to the 914 Turbo Control Unit (TCU). If you wish to monitor Air Box temperature on SkyView, install a second Skykit Air Box temperature sensor."

Does anyone know where I can buy a Skykit Air Box temperature sensor?

Update: after speaking with Dean at Lockwood, I have decided not to install an airbox temperature gauge. Dean told me that if I were to install a gauge for monitoring airbox temperature in the cabin, I would be the only one he knows who is doing it. He also pointed out that airbox temp can be checked using software.
