thermostat location 01

ok i tried searching, but it didnt help. heres my deal, i bought an aftermarket electric fan and thermostat. the instructions say to mount the "threaded temperature sensor into a threaded port in water passage of the intake manifold, or cyclinder head." my question is where on the head should drill?? any info would help. thanks

Don't drill into the head unles you really know what you are doing; you'll have an expensive paperweight. There are air bleed holes with threaded plugs on the KD24 and VG33 engines; I'd start there to install a temperature pickup.

I'm working on an e-fan right now but I have the probe style temp sensor that goes into the radiator fins, not the coolant. For God's sake, don't drill anything. Try to find a port like az. said but make sure that your threads are metric.

Get something like this:

Not sure if it's the right diameter, but Im sure someone makes an appropriate solution. You'll have to cut your radiator inlet hose, but that's better than removing/drilling/tapping your intake manifold! The temp reading wont be as accurate, but presumably you can tune your fans to come on at any temp reading off the sensor.

As for the thermostat... I dont understand why you need one. The stock system should already have a tstat, unless you are trying to change the temp at which the tstat opens there is no reason to add another. If you confused the term "thermostat" with "temperature sensor" then nevermind.
