i bought a new coolant temp sensor that will hopefully fix the temp gauge issues. now i just gotta find the time to remove the intake and a crapload of other things to get at the d@*# sensor

also got gaskets for the intake manifold and TB since they're probably the original ones from germany.

$40 all said and done. WOOT for pelicanparts!

oh and an oil filter so i can do my oil this weekend.
