Rather then installing a separate aftermarket sending unit to display the ECT on an aftermarket gauge has anyone tried just tapping into the wiring from the OEM sending unit? Or will the extra current draw make the reading inaccurate?

If you get the Edge CS or CTS it will read it.

That's not what I'm trying to do. I have a spare temperature gauge and was just wondering if I have to install the sending unit that came with the gauge or if I could just splice into the OEM water temperature sender. Of course I'd need to verify that the both sending units have the same voltage range first and if they are would tapping into the signal coming from the OEM sender effect the accuracy? Just wondering if anyone has tried this as its done with HPOP gauges.
