They're all electric I think, you tap either into the Map line or the Intake Spider.
The EV2's are more expensive (but worth it I think) than the EV1's because they don't use, external, "Amplifier Boxes", are easier to read, and I though the new ones came with a built-in "idiot light" (at least they were supposed to) and easier to wire up.
You don't need the dimmer kit, they will dim with the other cluster lights BUT may not be at the same light-level so it's nice to be able to "tune" them the way you like them because if too bright, they can be distracting. All they give you is the right potentiometer to adjust it and a bunch more wire. You could just use a 5cent resistor to do the same thing if you wanted to experiment with different values and find out which one was needed...
