Installing Gauges...

How hard is it? My pillar came in with the EGT, Trans Temp and Boost. I was wondering if i should save the money and do it myself. I know that I will have to drill a hole in the exhaust manifold. I heard if a guy uses a greased up drill and a vacuum he should be fine. Now the Boost and the Trans temp. Where do those go... Thanks guys! Jeff

And for the boost line you tap into the MAP sensor hose or you can make a IAH delete plug and tap in there. For the trans I used the predrilled plug on my aftermarket pan but there is supposed to be a service port you can tap into.

No grease on the drill or tap! Drill your hole so it points downward, 98% of the shavings will fall to the ground.
