Default Adding Aftermarket Temp Guage

Just wondering if anyone has added an aftermarket temp guage (i m sure lots have) but is there a good place to either locate the sensor or is it possible to tap into the sensor that is running the stock guage? 92 SL1 thanks

I haven't done this but, others have. Three options I know of:
  • Put a tee in a heater hose.
  • Locate where the cooling system connects to the manifold and put a tee there.
  • This one's not for the faint of heart but, it would probably yield the most accurate results. Drill a hole in the head above the ECTS and tap it.

On a '92 with a bit of skill and cunning you could probably use the existing temp gauge sensor.

That's pretty vague and not much help.^ I like the drill and tap idea because its only aluminum and should be easy.

I need to correct myself because I'm not so sure it can be done on a '92. When I answered the question I was thinking about people that put a '96 or later engine in a '95 or earlier car. Then you have a gauge sensor that has to be added. So, it's basically the same problem and one solution is to put a hole where the sensor normally goes in the newer engine. However, in a '92 the second sensor is already there and I'm not certain there's room.
