Tranny temp probe goes on the drivers side of the trans. If you crawl under you will see a plug right above the split seam for the pan. Your probe should thread right in. dont worry about fluid loss, not much comes out. For the pyro I installed on the drivers exhaust manifold, drilled at the lowest point, hole facing down. I think its a 11/32 drill bit then tap with a 1/8 NPT. Use grease to hold the shavings and go super slow when your about to break through. was kinda easy. Whole project (pyro,trans,boost) took me about 6hrs. Hope this helps good luck

You can t-tap the MAP sensor hose for boost. Look for a lt-blue/red stripe wire for gauge illumination.

ok got the gauges mounted and the lighting done. and ran the wires down to under the dash. the sensors will have to wait till sat. just need to find a spot to mount those boxes. i like the t fitting on the map better than the intake manafold. its already on the engine and i dont want to take the time to reseal it. that mounting was a pita.

now i just cant wait to power em up.

wheres a good spot for the power to tap into? the lights in the gauge looks great!
