Gauge install

I just got my Isspro gauges in the mail, I have a few basic questions on install- where do you put the boost sensor in?, where have guys tied in to the dash lights, do you use a specific circuit to power the gauges themselves, can a guy "quickly" install trans temp sensor without complete drain and fill? I assume people are just finding room under the drivers side of the dash for the gauge electronics. thanks in advance

Re: Gauge install

I tied in to the radio power wire and the illumination wire for the lights. The tranny senson is very easy to install and I lost little to no fluid. I didn't take all day doing it, though. If your sensor is a multiple wire unit, use teflon on the threads. If one wire, install dry. The boost sensor comes off the map hose.

Re: Gauge install

it helps, I was thinking map sens hose when I was looking at it, and I do want the gauge lights dimmed with dash lights so that sounds like a good place to power up the gauge lights. one of the above links has a picture of the egt probe location on the manifold and that really helps, thanks.

Re: Gauge install

You will find the manifold very easy to drill. The gauges took an hour or so to put in, but only 15 minutes to hook up.
