Default Temp Gauge?

I was driving up in the mountains and my car was at the regular temp (needle was in the middle) but when i started to go down reasonably steep roads, the needle started to drop toward being cold. At one point it went almost all the way to the bottom. I removed the thing under the hood scoop when i blew a headgasket a while back so that i could get some air in the engine bay to help cool when I was stuck in the mountains and had to drive home, could that possibly have any impact? I would guess I was doing about 65 ish when all this happened and the temp outside was close to 30 degrees F. Any ideas?

Sounds like your guages is broken or your Tstat is malfunctioning.

Opening up you scoop would do zilch to cool a running engine - and if the Tstat was working properly, even if it could, this wouldn't happen.
