seems like you may have wire touching its not because you did a manual swap it could have something to do with where you have the wires run double check make sue all your wire are insulated

not change the gauge cluster as yet, but i think its the temperature switch that went bad the switch that sends the singnal to the gauge in the cluster not sure im about to go check that right now

thermostat gets my vote, could it be because the waterpump is spinning faster?

sound like a t-stat to me also. they are not hard to replace and pretty cheap. double check your wires, make sure there nothing pinch or a short some where.

before you start running in circles:
just make sure the wire to your temp sender (side of head, under dizzy) is not loose at all. (it's a single wire and the sensor is the smaller of the two down there. the little connector is a piece of shit and likes to get reamed loose.

I had a very similar problem after a swap. Under acceleration, the temp gauge would bottom out.

RIGHT ON THE MONEY THAT WAS EXACTLY THE PROBLEM THAT WIRE CAME COMPLETELY OFF now its good pluged it back in, and for the record when the thermostat goes bad the car over heats.
