Well there is a hole near the clutch pedal and a hole behind the glove box

Gauges are close to same or different, there is mechanical and electrical and a million companies that make them, where some are more accurate and others are accurate

Where are your from?
Whats your budget for gauges?
How many gauges does your pod fit?
What model car do you have?
Have you tried the search button?

There are many threads about installing gauges, gauge pods, gauge comarisons located within these forums :)

i dont know

there will be 4 wires. white, black, grey, and black w/ colored stripe. the grey or stripe wire will be the one to tap into. try one and see how the gauge reads, then try the other. which ever one causes the gauge to sweep back and forth in a controlled fashion is the best one.

doesn't really matter too much. a/f without a wideband is just going to give you a vague idea of what the car is doing.

Hey 415 I tapped all the wires to find the one I needed I had tapped the grey one, and the striped one it wasn't those it was the black one. But like you said it really isn't that accurate. It just sweeps back and forth as your driving, and goes almost all the way rich with the throttle punched from about 5000rpm on up.
