Is there any way to calibrate the temperature reading?

Mine always indicates more than 5 degrees F higher than it really is. I checked the Air Intake Temp and at speed it always matches the ambient reading on the dash. Does any body else have this issue? If I cant resolve it, I will get a $3 thermometer from Wal Mart but it sure does not look good.

If you have a tuner (Diablosport), you can get the temp reading on it and check to see if what you have is accurate. If you know how far it's really off, then at least you know for sure what it really is. Don't know if gauges are tuneable. I doubt it, they read off a differential signal. The sender may be at one end of the signal window, as small as that is. If it was outside of that parameter it would work at all.
