If you run the motor for 15 minutes w/o any load on it you probably wont get the engine warm enough for the thermostat to open. On my raw water cooled engine I used to remove the thermostat as it was...

I have one but I am not local, and by the time you pay shipping + insurance both ways you are almost better off putting that money towards purchasing one yourself. The 3 VIN model is only $199.

I think for your budget what you've picked is probably your best option. Just don't forget to budget for a transducer... the Garmin GT23M-TM is probably the best value out there
