Gauges

Hey I recently purchased some headlights and since they were on back order and came in late, the shop gave me some gauges and an a pillar. Heres what they look like.. By the way can someone tell me what is needed to hook up water and oil?

Water temp requires a fitting that goes in the radiator return hose
Oil pressure requires a T fitting in the pressure port in the back of the block.

Well you need to make the radiator hose fitting. I'm not aware of any commercially available ones besides GReddy's, and Greddy's has a BSPT threaded hole, and most of the senders are NPT (you can't put one in the other). If you can find a sensor port for a 30mm radiator hose and 1/8" NPT threads, the install is as simple as cutting 1/2" out of the radiator hose, clamping the fitting in place and plugging in the wire. If you have to make it, then you need a machine shop.
The oil fitting is a bit easier, just some stainless line and a T fitting are what you need.
Depends how handy you are with the car and making things fit.

For the water gauge sensor I found a billet one made for a NSX that you could possibley use that is only $29.00

then here is the DIY for the oil gauge install.

Instead of the DIY for the Oil sensor you can use the followiung

Oil sandwich adapter universal $68

The aluminum oil sandwich adapter is installed between the oil filter and block, and makes it easy to install aftermarket oil temp/pressure sensors (2 1/8 BSPT ports and 1 12mm port). Lowers oil filter by 30mm.
