So are you saying that the temp reading that even an aftermarket gauge hooked up to the PCM port like an AeroForce will not be reading accurate.....or is it just the instrument panel gauge sensitivity
Just the stock gauge.

i believe that is the same technique that is also used with the newer GM fuel gagues.....there is now a delay that is built in so there is less fluctuations unlike the prevoius years
