shouldn't be much of a hassle to do yourself! if you take it in make sure the person who does it is trustworthy and reliable.

Re: Gauges 03 6.0

Up until I installed mine I had no electrical experience whatsoever. I installed mine with no problem. Took me a little longer than I thought, but it was my first time messing with electrical. Do it yourself, its not worth the cost of having someone else do it and it should give you more pride in ownership.

Re: Gauges 03 6.0

Guess it depends on your level of expertise. For me it took like 4-5 hours IIRC.

Re: Gauges 03 6.0

I did my gauges by myself and it took me 6hrs, but I am a perfectionist and all the wires are taped up under the dash, and I did a few extra things to make installation of new gauges really easy. Shouldn't take you too long to do them yourself, just read the directions and don't plumb your boost line into your map sensor, it will fluctuate all over the place above 10psi. Put it into the intake elbow if at all possible.
