Gauge pods

Hi, I'm in Myrtle Beach South Carolina and I'm looking for someone within a hundred miles or so to help me with my 97 with manual tranny. I want to install gauges and improve my intake and exhaust. Having trouble finding someone local. Is a trans temp gauge helpful with a manual tranny or not.? I don;t trust either of my stock pressure/temp gauges so I'd be interested in new ones. Is the installation something I could do with a couple tools or is it strictly a job for the experienced? Thanks in advance.

No you don't need a gauge for the manual trans. Gauges are pretty strait forward to install. And intake do the 6637 filter with a 3 inch down pipe and get rid of the cat and muffler

Savannah GA here. Bring a bag of parts and I'll put em all on for you. I've still got a chunk of 4" pipe and a band clamp for the intake mod......

No need for a guage on the manual trans. If you are set on installing one, there isn't a test port for install, so you'll have to drill/tap the inspection plate.
Writeup found here: Zf-5 transmission temp sensor
Helical gears are a lot easier on fluid than planetary's, torque converter and a pump, so heat is rarely an issue with a M/T.
