    oil pressure and water temp?

    hey I've searched and can't it a wiring diagram....I'm hooking up an Autometer electric oil pressure and water temp gauges and was going to tie into the stock harness if I can.

    does any have a wiring diagram for an 04 GTO?

    See...this is why I wish us 04 owners had the setup like the 05/6. Plug under the dash where the center gauge pod goes.

    Mark, why dont you just buy a sandwich adaptor for your oil filter? I just did this, it comes with 4 1/8 NPT ports for your pressure sender and takes minutes to install. Check out the general help section, I posted a few pictures of it in a thread there.

    thanks Hi-Po, lol but a day late. I picked up a couple of fittings and "T'ed" it off of the port behind the manifold

    I ran several wires through a rubber plug in the firewall that is VERY easy to get to on both sides, on the drivers side just below the brake booster (might be the clutch mounting hole?) mine is an auto

    When I do mine, I think I'll get a vacuum and an AFR gauge.

    I need to dig up my hand held vac gauge to get my idle dialed in....
    I have lean cruise setup on my car, and it still kinda freaks me out when i'm going down the highway and it drops to full lean lol

    lean cruise = 17:1, it's built to run it at cruising speeds (just off closed throttle), not bad, just strange

    I just installed, Ful pressure, Oil pressure, Volts, water temp (ran wiring and sender) and a 5 Inch Tach. I love the placement for the Tach, I bought an adaptor to bring it out alittle further from the a pillar guage pod.

    I pulled out the stock double DIN cd player and put in a single DIN Sony.....made a panel to fill the hole under it and mounted my A/F gauge there.....im going to pull it out and make a new panel to hold three guages (A/F, oil pressure, volt) and the two tranny mode switches. I also mounted the shift light right at the base of the A pillar pointing right at my eyes.
    I have a 2 gauge A pillar pod laying in the garage I'll add later when I get the gauges to fill them (maybe trans temp, oil temp)
    I wonder if there is a port on the tranny where I can get true real time line pressure?

    M6, Heres what my tach/shift light setup looks like. There are 5 bulbs in the tach that light up progressively.



    and heres the plate I made to fit over the cubby hole. Thats coming out, Im going to make a bigger plate... move the cigerette lighter... and put two guages there. Next to the Voltmeter will be my water temp.

    looks good, I just wish they made a full A pillar with pods for my car.
    I have my shift light mounted right where your tach is
