yep looks like everything,for the boost line ,in your first pic,were you have the 3 parts in a row,thats how they go,feed the boost line through the first one,then work the smal piece on to it,then screw it on to the piece that threads onto the gauge,pyro is pretty straight forward i think,drill and tap exh. manifold,drivers side,feed the wire up to the gauge and hook it all up,should be pretty easy.goodluck

when you screw everything on it just pulls right back out?

ok i see what you do-the little round thing kinda pinches the hose if you tighten it on down!
ok so i have the boost gauge under control and the pyro to
last question-on the pyro gauge there is a hot and ground wire comeing out of it, where do those wire into
and the lights for both gauges have ben wired into one common positive and ground but one wire is black and i is white, i know that you wire it into the dimmer switch but witch ones?

you can run the hot wire for each of them together if dont mind ur lights being on in ur guages all the time....otherwise run ur regular hot to an ignition hot and the others to a power switched by your headlights
