That temp sender under the water neck is for the ECU, IIRC.  You don't want
to tap off it.  You will want the white 2 prong sender (120C/250F) that is
found on 4kqs and CGTs.  Not sure what is on ebay.  Tony's post was right on
the money.  As was Dave's WRT to the boost gauge.

Can't help with rustproofing stuff, but some people have fitted 4kq inner
fender wells into the urq - seems like a great idea seeing as how there all
sorts of nooks and crannies up in there that would be rust's playground in
certain climates....

Rumor has it the washer pumps are like $8 at your FLAPS etc - same pump as a
rabbit.  I could use one too....
