In general when you bypass the circuit. It causes the gauge to react properly to the engine. So you'll see the needle move about a bit more like for example as the thermostat opens and then temps level off you can see a spike on the gauge. Or if you are climbing a long hill loading the engine more. You'll see the gauge rise now because you don't have that stupid faker board in there.
