Nice. Is that the EM or the classic?

Ultra gauge is selling the EM for $69.

Is that a good price?

So I got my father's day gift early. She pretty much had to give it to me when the box arrived in the mail with the words ULTRA GAUGE on the box.

Just thought my follow up on my original thread.

My engine runs at 198.

It will climb to 203 and hang there for a few minutes, and then drop to 195. The stay at 198 for a while.

Sounds normal, right?

I use a scanguage. I've noticed the cooling system wants to be at 188-190. I've had it spike to 208 while pulling a trailer uphill, and I've had it plunge to 182 coasting downhill.

The needle stays at dead center no matter what.

After installing a new set of plugs on my 02 DC, my water temp is now at 182 per my scanguage.

Old plugs: NGK BKR5EKB
New plugs: Denso K16TR11

Any ideas why?

When I got the truck the jiggle valve was at 12 o'clock and running 200+ after replacing the thermostat and putting the jiggle valve at 6 o'clock it runs 190. It only got to 200 when driving 70+MPH up a 7% grade with A/C on.
