you are going to want to put the sensor in a hose that is coming OUT of the motor. this way it will be "worst case". this is the way it's done in almost all automotive applications. take a look at your car/truck, there should be a sensor close to the thermostat... usually the coolant coming out of the motor is the hose coming off of the thermostat housing.

i just looked at my motor. i know the hose going from the pump to the head is into so it flows down (like in pic) but. i cant seem to find the thermostat or the hose going out.. is the one going out the one that goes to the coolant tank?

Mecanic helped me do mine. Take the belly pan off and splice into the house right there. Easy to get to once the pan is off. I use my guage to insure the sled is properly warmed up before full throttle.
