Ben, I think I have to respectfully beg to differ here.  The MFS is the
temp gauge sender and also provides some info to the AC system.  There
is also a two pin double ntc switch on top of the coolant neck that is
for the CIS system.

The NG/87.5 coupes I have seen are set up like the 90, ie MFS
underneath, CIS sender on top.
