Looks good. Any reason for choosing oil temp vs oil pressure?

They look good, but I'm not too sure I'd wanna block my AC vents down here in the Chuck.

LOL!!! I never thought of that, im sure it could be done.

As for not having the oil pressure gauge i figured since i already have one on the gauge cluster I didn't need another. What I really want is a fuel pressure gauge but from what ive heard alot of people that have done that develope fuel leaks from small cracks around the shrader valve. I want to wait until i get another fuel rail set up so i can have a valve welded in the fuel rail to ensure I wont get any leaks. At that time ill pull the oil temp and have only the fuel pressure and trans temp.

Also having two A/C vents closed up makes the other three blow harder I have two pointed at me and one at the passenger seat. I was skeptical but enough air gets pushed through the open vents to cool the inside of the car down just fine.

If anyone wants to do this aswell and want some more pic and maybe some advice just let me know.

Ahhh, I see. I just know most people don't trust the stock gauge for oil pressure. I have trans temp and oil pressure currently and need to add a coolant temp gauge to the mix. TTSdatamaster has proven how far off my factory coolant gauge is.

Yeah, Ive heard how bad the factory gauges are, I think the oil temp gauge is more me just wanting a gauge until i figure everything out for my fuel pressure gauge. BUT the important fact is that i have a oil temp gauge that WORKS lol. I had that thing mounted with out working for two months so im excited to have it light up and actually tell me something. I don't know when id actually need to know the oil temp though.

don't know if you have a 4l60e but it was easy to get mine working. I went months with out hooking up my gauges because I hardly devote time to the little things.

its a th400. i dont think im making much heat on a typical track outing though, so its not real important to me. same situation with my oil temp gage. the main things i monitor are the nitrous pressure, oil pressure, and shift light.

Yes, same tach. No need for it in the Vette. Vette has a digital tach in the HUD and an analog tach in the dash.
