hooking up guages

ok so ive got some autometer gauges and i was wondering where the best spot to hook up the water temp gauge and oil pressure gauges under the hood. i have a general idea but i was wondering if anyone has already done it

ha im in the same situation for the water temp. But for the oil pressure, I bought an oil filter sandwich plate (goes between the block and oil filter) which made things MUCH easier and plus you can add an oil temp sensor to it later if u want just by opening another port on the plate.

yeah i figured i would buy a "T" fitting for the oil pressure sensor but the water temp im not 100% sure where to tap into so b.c the sensor that goes to the gauge is not the same thread size. so if i removed one that is the same size it would be to the computer and then i will probly be throwing codes,

were u asking me for the part number for my gauges

u gotta buy a piece that you put in the coolant line. u cut a coolant hose then put the temp "socket" in between.

here's the sandwich plate i got: http://www.glowshiftdirect.com/index...TS&Category=37 (i cant remember what size it was though lol, ill see if i can figure it out again) i think it's the 3/4 unf-16

and here's the water temp thing: http://www.glowshiftdirect.com/index...TS&Category=39

again, i dont know the size i need, hence why i have yet to buy one lol. if u figure out the size coolant fitting we need, let me know. I think im gonna do the TB coolant bypass and just put the fitting between those 2 hoses

plus it actually has numbers :P and redundancy in gauges can potentially save your engine if one fails. Plus, his stock gauges are at least 11 years old. And another + for the fact that they look awesome lol

I think stock gauges look awesome-er. I was just wondering why'd you get water temp before something else knowing that the car comes with water temp, but if it was a gift I guess it's all good lol.
