Default Anybody done this?

I have read several threads on Boost gauge installation. My question is has anyone with a factory boost gauge removed the gauge but used the lines and wires to hook up an aftermarket gauge? That is what I want to do. Seems feasible.

I am placing 3 gauges in the clock's current location. The column
mounted boost gauge is going bye bye. I have the factory gauge instructions to aid in removal. My new gauge is Autometer Z series. I don't want to use that nylon tubing!

Anyone?

Default Thank you.

I suspected it wasn't that big of deal.
Accuracy will depend on the gauge you use. Mechanical vs electrical and the manufacturer.

Default Ok I'm done.

Man that was easy! Looks better, easier to read and no skinned knuckles!

Removal of the factory one was the tricky part...
