Ok it seems that this is a "who's got a bigger pole" discussion.So let me introduce my friend,Mr STFUMDIB !!!
I bought this gun a couple years back for use on 1:1 cars and R/C cars at the time it cost around 450 USD.
It has "adjustable emissivity" with a table for use on most materials.
Just bring the car in when you want to check the temp,point at the glow plug with the applicable distance to spot ratio that is given and it takes a half a dozen different measurements,in which I usually take the highest.
It is without doubt in my mind more accurate then any of the current onboard cheap stuff and the gun and laser can be serviced and recalibrated.
Incase you're wandering,yes it does knock at least 2 seconds off your lap time.
