Tap into the neck of the pipe headed into the head from the top of the radiator. Pull out the bleeder screw and tap that ass!

Tuner toys also makes an adapter piece that bolts to the head.
They are on ebay sometimes.
Might have to search hard for it.

I got the tuner toys adapter for my car. Really great quality stuff. People say its pricey for 40 bucks. If you wana do the same thing for cheap if your car has a bleeder screw for the cooling system right off the adapter for the upper hose off of the head ive seen plenty of people make there own adapter off of that. Just take the adapters you get with any temp gauge kit and make something work. I think theres some write ups on this somewhere..

i missed it was a y8 in his op. thats why i just went with the adapter. You could get something like what you posted. it would be cheaper. I just like how nice the tuner toys adapter is.

I think that'd be okay Snail. Long as theres coolant getting to the sensor (obviously is)
