Default Water Pressure Guage

I mixed two subjects in a previous post and got not response to this portion.


Where is the best place to put a water pressure sensor in a Gen IV 454? Will a sensor in the intake manifold suffice?

water pressure should be constant throuh the block with slight variation. most take the pressure off of any one of the plugs on the side of the block but the intake manifold would work i suppose.

I run mine off the back intake. Were the water bypass ports are in the manifold, by the distributor. Works great and they do not get clogged up like they did when they were down on the block...

If you have a place to take it from the intake, that will work fine and won't clog as easy as using the block drain hole.
