I just finished the install of the Autometer Ultra Lite II 2 1/16" Boost Gauge and Autometer Angled Ring. It went together without a hitch. I hooked up to the tan wire in the small plug on the back of the headlight switch so it dims with the dash lights and ran the line through the rubber firewall grommet below the brake booster. It matches the Tachometer Perfectly!!!

See Joe, I had to do the same with those little angle cups to be able to see the full Nexus Gauge I have in that slot too!!!Looks good, how did the Ultralite II stack up, I havent seen those in person yet, just the Sportcomp II and the Cobalts...

Nice work boss. Looks so good makes me want one even though there is no boost under the hood. I guess I could shoot for the tranny temp instead.

I saw that you used the angle rings. Do you have pics from the side to show how far it sticks out? I have been debating to do this but not sure how it will look.

I removed the angled ring when I did the AFR gauge in the rear wiper hole. The angled ring was too big for that hole and didn't look correct with them being different. I ended up drilling out a stock SS plug for the Boost gauge.

Would you mind giving more details on the installs? I am going to do the same thing and it would really help to know exactly which wires you tapped into for power, dash lights, etc. And also how you mounted the sensors. I will be doing trans temp. Any recommendations on best way to mount/install sensor?

Remove the big plastic panel below the steering wheel and there is a large electrical connector that you can pull key on power from. The power for the lights can come from the radio or the headlight switch. Just use a multi-meter and check for the power and activation you need, most gauges will use key on power and a dash light power so the gauge can dim with the dash.

If you lift the carpet on the drivers side you will see a rubber boot that the shifter cable goes through. You can use that to run the wires to the sensors like AFR and Trans Temp that are under the vehicle. For sensors in the engine compartment you can run the wires or vacuum lines through the firewall grommets.
