I plan on installing a trans temp gauge and was wondering where everyone gets their temp reading from . I was thinking of an inline block for the sensor before the cooler .

Measure at the largest volume of the media whenever possible as that will be the most stable and overall representative temperature.

You want to install it the the trans pan. You want to monitor overall fluid temp as this is what matters to the clutches and longevity of the transmission. Sam call me to discuss.

I actually put mine inline on cooler return. Idk how much difference would be between the pan and line back to cooler. If I ever get a bung installed I would like to compare the difference in temperatures

Return cooler line oil is the most accurate for determining true trans temp Or to put it another way ..... This is the temp that should concern you. Oil in pan is "stagnant" oil and doesn't represent true discharge temp which is whats concerning.
