Ya, I got the idea when ppl said what they did, ans I know where they're talking about. But mine was also a RWD app so I didn't think the post all the way through

Thanks Nate and Pat. I'm going to bug Willwren and see if he can take a pic for me exactly where he tapped his power and gauge at on his, then try and get it in on Saturday. On another note, the scanner is now staying in the car from now on.

Aaron....its the same place for the trans temp.....there is only one place for it, and i tapped off the dimmer wire, for the IP, and pwr is off my custom harness, but there are tons of places

and for the Volt you want it off the Battery terminal, you also want it to dim with the IP

Any volt gauge I've ever wired I have always just piggy backed it straight onto the battery terminal...Maybe there'* a better way to do it though.

Oh no, sorry, I meant the 12v I'm going to need for the transmission temp gauge. I know how to handle the voltage gauge.

Nother question: I figure I'm going to paint my calipers and drums at some point. What drums have people used on performance builds? Does it matter? My discs are going to be powerslots, pads are going to be ceramic. Haven't picked brand on that yet.

there are no performance drums.....you stock is fine unless you need to get new ones because of excessive wear or something like that

My theory is that if you're gonna go nice and new up front, may as well in the back too. Also eliminate the possibility of un even braking.

Was planning on painting them and these are rusted over good. I've been looking at the prices and its pocket change when compared to the other crap I'm planning so I figure I'll just put new ones on.
