Default Water Temp gauge

I just got a Greddy 52mm coolant/water temp gauge. Wondering how others have installed the temp probe in the coolant flow?

Just T into either one of the Rad. hoses, or one of the throttle body coolant lines.

YMMV

I do have one on my dash, however, I have an extra space in my gauge cluster I need to fill. I didn't want fuel pressure and frequently use my PDA to monitor the coolant temp.

Stock fuel rails and FPR. Didn't seem to have the need.

Nope, go buy a brass 'T' from Home Depot, cut the hose, and clamp the T into place. Then screw the sender into the T.

Nope! This is from cars past..

Basically, you need 2 barb fittings for either end, and the center fitting to make up the 'T'.

Search in Summit, or Jegs... IIRC they sell something per-made to install a temp sender.

That's got to be a pretty big barb to fit inside the radiator hose!
