bleed the system. take off the radiator cap, insert funnel, start the car, keep the fluid level in the funnel until the fan cylces a few times, remove funnel, install cap.

figured i'd mention this to him before he starts changing parts since this happens so often after a swap.

problem fixed! after trying to bleed the system and noticing that the water temp stood at constant 230 on the gauge without any surging in the rpm's me and my boy figured that it was the gauge itself. we plugged in the laptop and of course the ect. was at 185! perfect.
