JUST DID THEM!
Get yourself 2 packs of wire RED and BLACK (comes in handy later, when you are figuring everything out), butt connectors, quick splices and spade end connector thingies
Go get a multimeter radio shack has them for 20 bucks, it makes finding that 12 volt keyed source a LOT easier.
Run your gauge lights off the dimmer circuit, that way it dims with your stock gauges
Install your pyro in the manifold NOT the downpipe (as I did)
get some wire looms to keep everything purdy
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EVVVVERRRRRYYYYYTTTTHHHHIIIIINNNNGGGGG
(I made a LOT of trips to the parts store)
In order to splice into your map line you will need: 2-1/4" barbs with threaded male ends, 1 1/4" all female T, 1 brass 1/8" to 1/4" bushing and some teflon tape (plus the fitting that comes with the gauges)
DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERIES BEFORE YOU START WIRING
Don't freak too much about drilling holes and getting them square in the pillar. I popped the new gauge pod in place, held the top how it was supposed to go in, drilled it then screwed it. Get some automotive screws from the hardware store that has the finish washer built onto them. It looks clean
Before you wrap up quadruple check that you ran the wires correctly.
Believe it or not, it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be
