Well, I guess the only thing that will "slow you down" with doing this
is that you have a boost gauge in the inst cluster, right?

ignoring that for a moment, all you should need is the console gauge set
from a coupe GT (early or later - different cosmetics - whichever you
like...), a water temp gauge from same car to go in your cluster, the
two pin oil pressure sender from the same donor, and an oil temp sender
to screw into the bottom of your oil pump, and the water temp sender,
again from the same car.  You'll end up with a voltage gauge as well for
your trouble!

figure out what to do about that silly boost gauge and those foolish
diff lock switches and all this other stuff will fit right in like its
