Now that I have installed a 96 z28 lt1 and t56 in my 68, it is time to get gauges and set up the dash but here is where I am running into problems.
I cannot find any manufacturer that makes a gauge set up that will operate using the 96 stock sending units and ECM that will function in the 68 Camaro. Any Suggestions?
I have already spoken to reps from VDO, Dakota Digital, Classic Instruments, Autometer, and a few resellers (Ricks, Summit, Jegs ) about using the 96 wiring and no one seems to have a ready made solution. In fact, most of the gentlemen I have spoken to have been really surprised that I want to use the stock sending unit signals(except for fuel which is common 0-90ohms type) in my project... so I am clueless at this point and I do not know what to do. I know that I do not want to rewire the engine or alter existing connectors for new sending units.
Through the stock (96) engine harness (c220,c230) I have the following wires available that I would like to use if I can find gauges that match...
c220-a-red Generator feed
c220-b-tan Oil Pressure Feed
c220-c-brown Oil Level Feed (optional but useful)
c220-k-green coolant temp feed
c230-b-bro/wt MAL indicator
c230-d-white tac feed
Does anyone know of a nice looking gauge set (mint green on black) that will operate on the 96 stock signals?
