Default How long to install EGT, Boost, and Oil Temp for a noob?

would it be an all day thing or is it something I can get done in 3-4 hours? I have access to a lift and many tools and I will have help from a guy that works on cars but has never really worked on foreign cars just american. I am trying to get a time frame.

Oil temp won't be that bad.. boost slightly harder maybe.. EGT you need to tap the manifold.. IMHO do them one at a time

Well I only really have one Saturday morning to do all of them. We are starting at 8am and I have until 3pm when I have to go to a wedding. Is this possible or is it going to take longer then that? I thought that boost took about 40 min and I can't imagine that the others would take more than 2 hrs apeice. The boost and oil temp are mechanical gauges I don't know if that makes any difference with time.

Oi. I am not sure you want a mechanical oil temp gauge. If something goes wrong there will be oil in the cabin

IMHO if you have to rush stuff, and if you need your car together to go to a wedding, you should leave it alone til you have time.

It depends on what type (mechanical or electric), what brand (maybe?) and how good you are with tools and wiring.

It took me and a friend (he does the wiring) about 1.5 hours to do a mechanical VDO boost gauge start to finish.

Boost is the easiest- shouldn't take more than about an hour.

I have to chime in here..... i just took my ca in to have it done(EGT,boost,and oil pressure). It took about 6-7 hrs. All gauges were eletrical. I expected it to take 3-4, but this guy worked pretty quick and it still took forever.

The last install I did took six hours. It was boost, rpm and fuel pressure on a supercharged Crown Victoria.
