Default Is it hard to connect gauges??

Wanna get Oil Temperature and wide band O2. Maybe a 3rd one....but can't think of a 3rd one. Can you?? Wanna get a 3-gauge pod for the pillar.
Thanks.

Oil temp is not bad, youll tap into a wire off of the computer for an electrical one or install a fitting and run a tube though the firewall for a mechanical.

For a wideband youll need to weld in another oxygen sensor bung into the exhaust.

Is your car an auto? of so trans temp is good to watch

Not trying to thread jack, since it'd probably be good info for OP too, but anyone know the easiest place to run the senders through the firewall? Have everything hooked up, just need the senders run for a trans temp and oil pressure gauge (both electric)
