      Good Morning.
      My intentions are to use Autometer gauges. Probably Nexus or similar. My question pertains to how I make each gauge work. Will I need mechanical or electronic? Any kind of signal modifier?

      No turbo or SC. Im lookin to use speedo, tach, fuel level, coolant temp, oil pressure and maybe amperage. Can anyone shed some light on the situation?

      The stock VR6 gauges are all electronic. The temp ones you'll have to use the Autometer senders.

      Yeah it is going to be expensive. But I don't mind. I've been waiting many years to start this project.
