Just ordered the gauge cluster for oil pressure and voltage. On 2 week backorder. That is too bad. The 05-06 GTO is a plug and play pretty much except for cutting the dash, removing the radio and console, then removing the.... well you get the point. Great option. Too bad it wasn't included in the OEM. I know, I know, less then favorable exchange rate. Speaking of that why does crude oil go up 2.14% and gasoline go up 4.68%? Check out www.rigzone.com

You’re making to much work out of it!
No cutting and you can make a hook that will pull wire up.
Guy on EBay includes hook and instructions
Good luck I got my Guages and Shifter kit @ JHP. Good Service there and shipping is less and faster than you would think. They took good care of me.

:eek: You are saying you don't have to do all that???? JHP has instructions on the site, and it suggests all that I said. If there is an easier way, I am all ears!!! Let me get this straight. A hook will fish out the wire? NO cutting on the dash lip? Wow, that certainly sounds easier. I would be interested in the directions you used. Or at least a play by play.
Thanks

mine did come with directions that said to take the dash and part of the console apart,remove radio,and cut the area under the original cover but I didn't have to do any of that........do a search here and find some good instructions with detailed pics...thats what I did

muthabusta is his name on Ebay. He's a awesome guy to deal with.

Also he uses JHP gagues but he makes the pod(I think). Either way, it's expensive as hell but worth it IMO.

:) The cluster arrived in great shape today. I did a search and came up with some various pictures. The directions included make all kinds of idle threats regarding warranty etc, but in examining the overall process, it looks like removal of the top plate, removal of four screws, a bit of pressure out to catch a view of the plug and the hook it, could get the wire and plug. I still wonder about the cutting. I may go ahead and do that, I have the tools to accomplish that task. It is a sharp outfit, expensive though, arrived for $475, current exchange rate
