Actually, you could just replace the sensor in the block. It's in the
pass. side head between the front 2 plugs. You'll have to replace the
sensor anyway, to work with an aftermarket gauge. I found the one in
my 94 (though that was with a digital dash) to be pretty close to
accurate, and the one in my 2000 seems to be as well.
Go with a mechanical gauge if you choose to replace instead of just getting
a new sensor. You can also get thermostat housings that accomdate temp
gauges. The draw back to those is that you don't get a good reading until
after the thermostat opens up. You do know what the temp is going into the
radiator that way though. Also, they are pretty easy to install and
