    WFO drilled and tapped the head on my 08, right next to where the stock sensor is.

    You can use a tto temp gauge with the supplied brass washer type washer fitting and attach it to the stock sensor. Works perfect. Ill post a pic later... think snowman gave me the info.

    you see where that boss is that the stock one screws into?
    That is where you would drill and tap for an aftermarket sensor

    Take the stock sensor of and use the washer sensor from the tto gauge. It installs on the sensor.

    If you do not have the head off the one like Ocman recommends works very well.
