Are you using factory wiring and sensors to the transmission temp,oil pressure and water temp?

The gauges you want to hookup tap into different places then the stock gauges. The water temp goes into the block on the passenger side between the motor mount and the trans. The oil pressure will go right below the factory sender above the oil filter. I hope you got electrical gauges, the mechanical ones are more difficult to install. If you didn't get any yet, that is what I would recommend.

Bob FYI with that many A Pillar guages and from the looks of it you have dark tinted windows say goodbye to being able to see out your driver side window at night the window acts like a mirror for the guage lights I will never do an A pillar again

Nope, the gauges tap into other spots not used by the stock stuff. Electrical gauges are so much easier to install. The speed shop gave me some free gauges last week when I was inquiring about them but 1 of them was a mechanical gauge and the other 2 cost $100 combined brand new so I kindly refused. If they were the Phantom gauges I woulda had them installed already though. The colored covers for the bulbs suck IMO. I had them on before and they give off a color not close to the cover. If you wanna change the light color spend a few extra $ and get the LED replacement lights.
