Angry Problem with the Venom Temp gauges! Help!

I just bought two new Venom on board temp monitors and placed them on my Revo. One is saying 320 and the other is saying 230-240. So I take precautions and follow the higher temp, and richen it up some, then one says 190 and the other 300. I need help...what should I do...I was thinking of just returning them and getting new ones to see is they were bad...but what are the chances of getting two bad gauges at the same time lol. One has to be right...but which one?

Why did I put two of them on you ask? Well I am alittle cautious and want to make sure it is at the right temp....but my plan failed and well the are off by alot.

Did you place the loop wires in the same place? I use a on board like you have and a temp. gun. neither are correct +- 30 to 50 deg. off. Mind you that the 2.5 runs hot, I use a MC59plug,Trinity Monster Horsepower and run at 280+ Trucks run great, RED

Those gauges simply don't have a reputable history of being accurate and consistent. Do the best you can but you may want to look into a different temp probe, even something like the Tempgun.com units, which are great for the money.
