Got a couple question about the install. How do the automated gauges get attatched to the pillar? Mine just came with like little tabs no screws.
Where did you guys place your boost and pyro? Also do you connect all the gauges in series? And finally how do you splice into your fuse box?

Thanks

I have Isspro guages, but...
The guages just "pop" into the pod, the tabs hold them in (not sure if the Autometers are the same)

Pyro probe is in the driver side exhaust manifold, as far back as you can get it, right in the bend where it goes up.(that's the easiest place to put it, and what most people do)
Boost - I use the stock boost gusge, I can't help there. But, tap the intake elbow, if I were to install one.
All of my guages are wired in series.
I used a "fuse tap" to draw power off the fuse box.

Installed the gauges last night they look awesome. Napa gave me the wrong fuse tap. I got the old style "big" fuse type. Do they make a mini fuse one ,?
