As stated, their is a reason why it's meant to mount to the plug.

A) CHT is a standard measurement, and without it your numbers basically are useless in terms of using community gathered data to tune and avoid seizure.

B) CHT does show more spikes, which actively coincide with engine fluctuations. This is because the plug center is the closest to combustion, giving you readings that most accurately reflect actual cylinder temps.

The same goes for people trying to use an IR thermo to tune. It's unreliable and inaccurate.
