A tranny temp guage isn't really necessary with a zf-5. An automatic transmission is where it's more usefull.
I'm guessing you got a three guage pod with boost, egt and tranny temp? IMO you'd be better off runing boost, egt and fuel pressure or oil pressure.

yeah i got the 3 gauge pod. i was looking at it like this. if i did oil pressure id be reading he low pressure oil pump. and that good in all but, that doesn't really mean much besides it feeding oil to the HPOP. and i didn't see a gauge for the HPOP so i kinda skiped oil pressure from there.

as for fuel pressure, i read some where that the pressure is always fluctuating, and that the pressure is somewhere between 50 and 100 psi. so i kinda thought if i had a fuel pressure problem it would be somewhat easier to deal with.

as for the transmission, i really don't know much about 'em so i kinda found out that it would be a good idea. not until after i put the order in did i hear that it's not really necessary. so i figure i got it now and don't have money to swap it out so might as well use it... oops.

If your manual trans has the plate for installing the PTO just pull the plate drill and tap a hole in it. I did that on my old truck. The plate isn't real thick but it's not like it has to have a lot of threads to hold against any kind of pressure. On the auto trans the test port is on the drivers side of the trans just above the oil pan flange.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

are you talking about the flat plates on the side of the tranny? i was told they where called inspection plates.

Yeah man I understand. Running a tranny temp guage in a manual definitly won't hurt.
Just for future reference, how much did the three guage pillar pod run you? I'm running two guages right now (EGT and tranny temp), but when I do injectors I'll throw a boost guage on the truck so I'll need a bigger pod.

so, you drain the tranny, and then drilled. or removed the plate. if drain, i fill back up with any ATF or Motorcraft ATF.
