    just out of curiosity, why are you installing a water temp gauge? if it is a stock car, it will only draw people to thinking it is worth stealing.

    why would you put another gauge in if there is a perfectally good one already in the gauge cluster?

    because i came with the cluster an i figured it would look pretty dumb to have 2 gauges in a 3 gauge cluster

    Understandable, but do you really need a water temp gauge? Unless you're motor's built and/or boosted, then a bunch of auxiliary gauges really aren't necessary, and like others said, they give thieves a reason to think your car might be worth jacking.

    Rather than just spending money on random gauges, a better idea would be to plan out exactly what you want to accomplish with your car, and then start working towards that.

    Just let him rice it out. He will learn eventually. If that is what he likes and it makes him happy, fuck it. We all had our days, let him have his.

    As for where you would mount the hose, it usually gets mounted somewhere near the water-neck outlet near the thermostat. It also depends on if it came with an adapter or not but it should usually feed from the upper radiator hose area near the engine block.
