Gauges

I'm getting ready to buy my SCT and I was just wondering how hard it is to install gauges. can I do it or should I get someone else too?

Re: Gauges

won't be too hard to install them, there are plenty or writeups online for installing them depending on which gauges you go for

Re: Gauges

The Pyro, Boost, Trans are pretty easy to install, mainly you just have to run wires etc etc and tieing it to your lights. Oil Pressure/Temp or Coolant Temp, Fuel Pressure those you have to make sure you buy the right ones but I dont think you need those yet . Im close to 10 gauges in mine.

Re: Gauges

Figure 3 hours taking your time for a clean install the first time. Your kit should come with complete instructions and all wiring needed. I carry Isspro's if I can help let me know.

Re: Gauges

I was looking to do egt trans, boost and a voltage gauge because I've had two alternators go out in the last 7months. and I got stuck on the side of the road this time so I figured I'd get one of them too.
