I don't know about the best location, but the EASIEST is to tap into the upper rad hose coming from the T-Stat.

cause if you tap off the line where the water just left the engine you know the exact temp. When the thermostat is closed and you are reading up there, you wont know the actual temps, only the temp of the water just chillin' up there.
