Guage Install

i've looked around for this, and i can't seem to find anything, or maybe i'm missing it, so i apologize ahead of time it there's a thread on this.

I bought a set of Optix di Pricol gauges from a buddy of mine over the weekend with a 3 gauge a pillar pod. There brand new in the box, and he never got around to putting them in before he sold his PSD(he sold it for a 08 dodge ram 1500 with a hemi said the PSD was way more truck then he needed. haha. dont ask, i have no idea. hahaha)
anyways, he only wanted $300 for all of it, which is a good bit less then he paid i believe, so i couldn't pass it up. I got pyro, boost, and trans temp. anyways, here's my question

I will have no problem running all the power wires and what not, but where my troubles will begin is hooking up the all the sending units. like where the unit for trans temp goes in the tranny, and how to hook up the boost tube and what not. and of course how to drill and install the pryometer sending unit into the downpipe. I got everything to do it(i'm pretty sure), and directions, but the directions only involve the gauge's wiring harness's and what each wire goes too. they dont help me with the hard part, installing all the sending units.

I've messed with alot of things, but never with gauges

Does there happen to be a right up or anything on installing any of these gauges. or, maybe you guys could point me in the right direction of somewhere to find the info i need to do this install


thanks for thoughts in advance, whether there the right answer, or just ideas, anything is helpful.

DieselManor - Taking the Mystery out of Diesel Performance™ has good instructions on their site. Several places sell 3 gauge sets with A pillar and install kit for $300 so I wouldn't say you got a great deal, pretty much what they go for. Although the install kit and model specific instructions are worth a lot when you go to install, as you are finding out. The instructions on Diesel Manors site should get r done!!

Who from and how many gauges? Did this include the A pillar and install kit? Just curious as that is a really cheap price for a three Isspro Gauge set-up. Kens normally charges $300 shipped.
