No gauge as of yet. The housing has a Tstat in it so worst case is that it is cooler than is was before, regardless. AS for the track. I have a 175 tstat in as part of the fan delete. I almost think I want to put in a higher t stat. Working the math on that. A higher stat keep heat in the motor and only excess goes off to the radiator. The question is at what temp does the heat overwhelm the radiator since you have plenty on the track. The Cobra wide open for a session never gets hot but you have that big mouth hanging out front. I did think that the area gained by removing the ac fan was a good trade off. The center of this has to block alot of potential air.

And then add this to the sides.

Even though the air from the cooler is warm. I think there might be a net gain. Of the two gauges I think water would be better. If I get worried I will convert to EVAN's and won't have to worry about overheating. Now that I think of it I might do that anyway.
