It needs to be out front in the airflow but it's better if it's protected from direct rain splash. For accuracy, don't mount it in the engine compartment or too close to the radiator.

might get really wet in a couple months...Ive got mine by the tranny cooler, under the frame. Didnt notice a temp difference from the header panel so its going back up there. Id say move it to header panel before it starts raining...its fine for now.

thats where I have mine except mines on the inside of the frame. my temp reads too high. its picking up motor heat. sometimes its off by 20 degrees. front end of the truck is a better spot. I haven't moved mine up front because I don't know how to route the wire up there

wheres the header panel?

I'm about to get my OHC wired so I want to have an idea of where. I was thinking under the airbox somewhere.

Alright so I think there are some missing steps in this OHC install. Like "misplace screws here." then "cussing storm here"

Didn't finish today but will soon
