Most people use the Nissport fitting that mounts in line in the radiator hose, it has an 1/8" NPT port for the aftermarket sensor. That is the best way to do it as you cannot remove the factory sensor...Terran200sx said:I know the temp guage is a POS on the 200sx. So what's a good alternative? I don't want to buy a blitz or a techtom but i want a more accurate reading. Could i replace the stock temp guage with a aftermarket one? Anybody ever done this?
Why would you want to do that? The gauge has no markings to tell you what is what... The Factory sensor must remain in place and the factory gauge sucks pretty bad, I have seen as much as a 35 degree difference in temps with NO CHANGE to the factory gauge....Terran200sx said:can i hook it up to the stock guage with just the different sensor?
Actually that is possible, it will require a bit of work but I think it'd be nice and clean. You'l want to take the cluster out so you can see how the wiring on the back of it is, it is a plastic panel with conductors built in so you may have to make a spacer for the gauge. Regardless I think that's a good idea!Terran200sx said:i was thinking somthing like this, ignoreing the crappy photoshop job.
