I've added some Gauges into my 99 ES Intrepid. These include a volt meter and Vacuum Gauge. It looks stock. If you would like to see what it looks like let me know and I'll mail it to you. I don't have web site to place it on. If anyone could post it it would be appriciated.

E-mail it to me if you want, I'd like to see it. I'll throw it up on my geocities site and attach it to this post. Geocities is hit and miss on hosting, though. Usually it works, but not always. If the pic in my sig shows up, it's working right now...

Update... I'll give it a shot... here goes.




Looks sweet! Good match for the rest of the gauge cluster, and great placement!

if you don't see it here, click on the link

And if that doesn't work, just copy and paste the following into your browser:

2QWK4U....I don't think I've ever seen your signature work! lol ;)

Ever since Photopoint got greedy, picture posting has been rough. Just to save having to send Randy all my pics, I may just ante up the $19.95 and join. Bastards!!

Gentlemen,

Thanks for all the help in displaying my picture. I'm getting a page this weekend and I'll show the rest of the car. I also have a Nordskog Anolog Amp Temperature gauge mounted on the dash and a killer system. I'll get those pictures up shortly. I appriciate everything. :)

how hard was it to get that volt meter to work? that's one thing i'd really like to have. also, could it be possible to measure oil pressure without tearing apart the engine to find somewhere to put the sensor?

I hooked the voltmeter up through the fuse panel with a mini fuse jumper. This allows you to use an stock fuse and add an additional circuit with your own fuse. Basically a picky back.

I'm looking into Oil pressure now. Alot more difficult though. The vacuum gauge was really easy and it's a useful.

A vacuum gauge measures the pressure of suction in the engine relative to the atmosphere. It's great for determining possible problems with your engine. I myself use it for gauging fuel economy. It you can keep the vacuum above 15 in/Hg you'll get the best fuel economy. Pin the gas and it drops to near zero. A great place to learn about this is

For your vac gage I assume you just tap into a vaccum line. Which line or where did you tap into? Also curious how in the hell you guys run wires through the fire wall. I can't seem to find an easy spot to do this in my first gen trep. Where in your car did you place a hole to run wires through the fire wall?

I put a Tee connection in the vacuum line and attached the gauge like that. Very easy. Bringing in the vacuum line I went through the wall by the steering colum from inside the car. Right next to the boot I pushed a wire cloths hanger though, then my AMP wire (4 Gauge) and then the vacuum line.

There is also another hole under the drivers side where the throttle cables run through the firewall that has a tone of extra room. There is a rubber or plastic grommit in it and everything.. thats where I ran the wireing for my sub and lights through.
