Different sending unit could be giving a bogus reading. Is the sending unit the correct one for the gauge?

no I talked to some one
and since its a 96 and I cut all the o2's off its giving me a false reading I took a cooking thermometer and stuck it down in the radiator and it only running 150 so I have to run a after market gauge on it so it will bypass the computer
