    Ok, first off, yes I did search the forums, and yes I did search the internet (altho that was not a lot of help, just a lot of sites trying to sell my shit). Here's my question, does the temp guage in my factory console (96 Integra) register water or oil temp? I am working on putting together a guage pod, and trying to figure out what to put it. I am pretty sure I'm doing oil pressure, ammeter, and then whichever temp my factory guage doesn't measure. Any advice would be helpful.

    If Im not mistaken, it is the water temperature. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    What's an AMMETER??

    oem measures water temp.


    if you're all motor, i'd recommend oil pressure, and wideband 02

    thats about it...

    actually water temp is also kinda important, and the OEM gauge is HORRIBLE. My freind had one on his integra. His OEM cluster said it was fully heated up, but his aftermarket gauge was 50degrees colder then normal operating temp.
