Got my Boost, EGT, and Trans gauges and wanted to see from you guys that have them, should I try to install these myself or is it a pain in the butt? Ive got the gauges in the pod and in the truck, but was trying to figure out if I should try to install the wires myself or should I take it to someone??

Speedhut.com is where I got them. Started to make me some crazy custom gauges like you can do on their site but decided to just go plain white face just like the stock gauges are. Looks good without looking like rice,,LOL. Highly recommend these gauges for anyone thats looking, they are very high quality.

pony, if you dont get them installed here in the next few weeks, maybe we can get together and do a double install.

i need to make a trip over to l'view to see some folks, so maybe we can work something out.

what types of guages are ya'll getting if you get the Dipricol you just hook up 4 wires I believe run your thermocouple wire/boost line and thats it. really easy install only part that might be a pain (but not really hard) is installing the thermocouple. I am pretty sure genos garage and diesel manor both have installation instructions on there sites if you need help. just thought I would throw that out there. Put mine in myself took me about 4hrs but I had to run to town and get a tap for the pyro (haha long story), and forgot to order the sender extender for the trans guage.

Just some friendly advice. Take your time and make all the wire nice and neat. I just took mine down to install a fuel psi and it was like a rat had been in there. I had to redo everything!

For $100.00 You'd be nuts not to have them install them.... Good Luck on the install
I agree 90%. After I installed mine I felt I learned a little something. But $100 is a great deal-- don't pass that up!:thumbsup

genos garage has install instructions! it is real easy, save your 100 for another bomb! it's really not hard at all and like others you will enjoy doing it at the same time.

where are they doing that ?
i'm down with a $100 install.
C&C Kustoms. Ive been reading the install directions as well and there is no doubt that I could do it. But I know the guys at C&C very well as they have done work on several of my vehicles and I would rather let them do it,,,I always seem to break something!!
