u should look into getting wideband gauges... like the interceptors... they arent cheap but if u got 2 of them and a boost in the middle that would look sick! plus u could cover almost every parameter in ur car

I agree there was a long post about ti, and they got mad at me for saying it didnt follow the lines of the dash. However the pods themselves go with the interior better than the autometer.

I saw one on a car a few weeks back. Actually looked way better in person.

Oil Pressure : You need to run a T off the stock oil filter housing. One port for the stock sending unit and the other for the aftermarket sending unit.

Boost would be a vacuum T off the intake AFTER the throttle body.

Air fuel sensor you will need to have a bung welded in. Depending if its a wideband or narrowband will tell you the placement.

just a thought if you havent arleady bought the pod, ive seen a few guys install the guages right into the ac plate (between the vents on your dash in the middle where the gt500 plates go on shelbys) and it actually looks pretty clean. the one i saw in person i think was at excessive and chris installed it i think but not for sure. they went with white face gauges and it looked pretty clean. just a thought....and Will its scary how much you know about mustangs mods.
