    Guage Install

    Im looking to get an air fuel ratio(narrow band), vacuum, and fuel pressure guages in my T/A. I was wonder if there is a port on the intake for the vacuum guage or will i have to drill and tap one? Also is there a place to connect the fuel pressure guage to the fuel rails or something? I havent had a chance to look because my dad borrowed the car and lost the only set of keys I have somewhere in the house. Im not worried about the a/f guage cuz thats real simple. These are a Stewart Warner Maximum series guages to, if that matters.

    There's a small vacuum port on the rear of the intake, & a small tube comes from it for your AC controls. You could T off of it...

    Connect the Fuel Pressure to the scrader valve on the front of the driverside rail...I think they make senders that connect there.

    Does the vacume line that comes off the back of the intake happen to go to the ac and heat controller inside the car? That would be much easier to hook up to

    Narrowband is nothing more than an annoying lightshow....and a complete waste of money.

    Invest in a wideband or skip it.

    Exactly. The narrow band is worth nothing. Wideband, LC1, LM1, or a few others is what is needed for a WB. I have a LC1 wideband, and the only reason I bought that is because I also bought HPtuners Pro. Forget the Narrowband.

    Still just a lightshow.
    Free is good though...but it will tell you nothing about your A/F. If you must plug it in...don't. Just put the gauge in the gauge pod (without connecting it) and be done.

    This way you don't have to tap into the factory O2 wiring and run the risk of messing something up.
