    hey guys I just bought a sleeve for my radiator hose so I can put in my water temp gauge. and I was wondering, should I put it pre-block or post? Like should I put it on the upper or lower radiator house? I know it's not going to be 100% accurate but my stock one on my gauge cluster will always shoot way up past red when I'm driving (mainly on the highway) but when I get off or even step on the break it'll drop down to about where it's supposed to but when I start driving again it'll do the same thing.

    thanks guys

    the stock temp sensor is on the 'upper' hose going into the head, so that is the logical place.

    I have "Universal" Sunpro water temp gauge.. and the only place i can think to put the sensor is the hose adapter pipe hes talking about. The Sensor wont fit in any other sensor holes in the head, and the size thread/diameter is smaller then the sensor on the thermostat housing..

    Just saying..
