Who installed their own guages...

Just got my triple pod, and autometer Z-series boost, trans, pyro from raul @ stealth automotive.

How many of you installed these on your own, and about how long did it take?

I can lift one of these things with my eyes closed, but I'm a little iffy on wiring, etc. so just looking to get some info before I dig into it.

Its easy. Should take about 2 hours or so. Longer if you have a few beers in the process.

I've installed a few sets. Very simple. There should be a write up here somewhere.
The last set I installed it took about 1.5 hours and that was a moderate pace...

hardest part is drilling and tapping your egt probe. i didnt have a tap set so i took it to a shop and had them drill and install just the probe for me. i did everything else tho. make sure not to kink your boost line. trans wire is simple. theres already a port for it on your tranny right by your shifter cable.

Thanks everyone, seems like cake. Just wish I had a local FL stroker that felt like lending a hand, hate working on the truck by myself, seems like you're at it FOREVER that way.

Def. not something I'm going to do today, went to work last night at 5pm, just got off about an hour/half ago, so I'm pretty beat.

Also, to any FL strokers, that may wanna help tomorrow, I'm in lakeland. Shoot me a PM.
