Need advice on URD Y-Pipe???? Have URD Welbro fuel pump to install also but want help.

    I have a 2008 Tacoma, Prerunner, 4.0, DC.

    I have purchased a set of AutoMeter oil pressure, and water temp guages.....but I want to keep the factory electric guages working. Its not a problem for the oil pressure, but where can I install my water temp sensor, other than in a radiator hose?

    I tapped mine into the heater core hose under the hood at the firewall. I have a 2009 2.7 but I'd imagine that hose is in the same general area. I used the heater core ingoing hose to get a higher temp reading.
