Triple Gage Pillar Pod w/Auto Meter Gauges

Can someone help me. I just bought a Triple Gage Pillar Pod w/Auto Meter Gauges. I have an 01 Lightning. I tried to install it but it is too confusing on connecting the gauges. Can someone help me find an instruction that is not so confusing. Each gage has an instruction that says I have to check the dealer to make sure nothing will be damage on the oxygen sensors or something to that effect. I don't know what to do, they might not recommend anything after market items. Some dealer reps tells you something different. Please help me...gauges I have are EGT, BOOST, and Pyrometer. Thanks..

Rez, I have a similar setup installed with boost, fuel pressure, and clock. Boost is pretty straight forward, just splice into the vacuum line on the drivers side of the supercharger. You can also check the autometer website, and post your question to customer support - they are really helpful. I thought the pyrometer was only required if you are running a turbocharger not a supercharger?? What is an EGT guage?

EGT = Exhaust Gas Temperature, or pyrometer. Widely used with turbochargers.

scottie2hottie is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
So if EGT and pyrometer are the same, why do you mention that you one of each?

Thanks for the replies, so the boost is good to go but my EGT and my pyrometer is the question. Can someone else help me please. So I heard EGT is only for turbocharger not supercharger? So I maybe bought the wrong guages. Anyone owned an 01 Lightning with the triple gauges? What are the common guages displayed? I just want to know before I enter the next showtruck event...

Most common gauges for those with a Supercharger are boost, Air/Fuel mix, and Fuel Pressure. Again, I would check with Autometer's support guys, they are very helpful.
