On top of the trans case, next to the crossover pipe. Get an electrical gauge as opposed to mechanical. It'll make it much easier. Or consider using the PCM'* data for the temp by getting an Aeroforce scangauge.

I suspect I was the victim of false high readings on mine until I protected it from the heat of the crossover.

Yea I installed mine in march and still victim to higher readings due to the crossover, what did you use as a heatshield to protect the sender from that heat?

That may melt.

I made a custom heatshield that comes off the top of the crossover, and down the side near the sender. Then I also wrapped it in scrap material from my intake insulation 'Cool Tube'.
