thermistat out and the gauge still seems to be overheating any ideas.
ALSO the oil pressure guage seems to be all over the place, and remind you its

the sensors on you new motor do not match your vehicles intruments /gauges/computer, use the ones off your old motor, or order ones for your vehicle, to be sure use the VIN number to order, there are many different sensors for the 350 used in different applications that are vehicle specific not motor specific
