Default 2 Coolant temp ports?- Intakes

In a nut shell, I am looking for an after market intake manifold (better than prof. products) that has two coolant temp ports on it. Any suggestions/ ideas?

I installed an MSD Atomic EFI on my car last year. The EFI needs a dedicated coolant temp port, and I still wanted the use of my gauge inside the car. I had an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake manifold but switched to the Professional Products Crosswinds intake because it offered two ports (one in the front (EFI) and one in the back (Temp gauge)). I knew the Prof. Products intake was junk when I saw the poor workmanship on the casting and the huge CHINA embossed on the bottom of the intake. It was further backed up by my recent reading of the intake manifold article in motor craft that showed this intake producing about 20+tq and about 25 hp (on a 350 chevy) less then edelbrock and other brands.

Since the only edelbrocks that I have seen only have one coolant temp port (not considering the heat return line port, I still need heat.) I would like to find something or someway to run either my old intake (RPM Air gap) or another better brand intake.

Anyone have any suggestions/ideas?

I'm guessing, but wouldn't you want to use the existing for the EFI, and then take a temp reading off the ECU that comes with the EFI system? Ya, it may require changing the type of gage you currently use, but shouldn't that work?

Unfortunately the msd handheld isn't really made do be used as a digital dash. I do have it ghetto rigged right now and have it mounted to my gps windshield mount to hold it up. In short it's also not a simple glance to read the temp.
