Mustang gauge hookup

Im looking to buy some gauges just to monitor my car while driving, but I zero experience with gauges and don't know the first thing about hooking them up. I can find a power source and I can also find a ground but what about the rest? Im lost and would greatly appreciate if anyone on afm has a guide or can help.

have you made any mods or do you plan on doing any? Looks like you know what you want to monitor, but if boost is in your future then an air/fuel meter would be a good idea. Just make sure that you like the way the gauges look and get good ones. You will have to live with them every time you get in the car.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

If you have zero experience with installing them, I would suggest Aeroforce Gauges. Plug and play. That simple. I don't have them, but several others on here have them. The extra price would be greatly offset by the simplicity of installation. Mount the gauge, hide the wire, plug it in under the left side of the dash.

Single gauge, I would put it in a vent pod. Multiple gauges, I would put it on the pillar. If you have an aftermarket single DIN radio, they make a gauge panel that goes under/over the radio.

Hope this helps. Really simple, looks really good, and it is quality parts that should last a long time.
