Looking for someone to install my gauges (Near Canton,Tyler)

I have an '01 350 and looking for someone that can install my pillar gauges. I live near Canton. Place in Emory wants $800 installed for a 3 gauge pod with gauges installed. I just don't have the tools and DO NOT like to drill and tap anything!

It's a bit away from you, but if you need to go to the DFW area for any reason...

Call Specialized Diesel Performance(Eric) in Crowley, 817-240-7286. Tell em Brien sent you

$800 seems high to me. Most local shops in DFW would do it for about $600 I'd think. Which gauges are you needing installed? I assume boost/pyrometer but what is the third?

I would think $300 at the most. I already have the gauges. The most time in all 3 is the Pyro. The rest are almost plug and play.

You have to route all the wiring through the dash/firewall, find an ignition based power source for the back light portion of the gauges, tap into whatever lines you need whether its boost/fuel/oil pressure, install sensors in the exhaust for the Pyro/a boost sensor and lines if you're not running a mechanical boost gauge, pressure sending units in the rails for fuel/oil pressure, mount the pillar, etc. It's not hard it's just time consuming. Most shops locally charge $200-$250/gauge. I installed them on my truck and car the first time and on the most recent car paid for them to do it because it takes a long time to do it right.

I doubt very seriously you'll find a legit shop to do it for $300, you might find a forum member that would though.

A forum member would be fine too. I would gladly pay even a little more.
