    About to rip out all my gauges/dash but the one thing that I dont really want to loose is the gas guage. How to I go about getting one that will work with my stock sending unit and all?

    I THINK that you can get ones specifically tailored to a GM's electrical signals. 0-90 ohm comes to mind but I'm not sure if that's correct without a parts book nearby.

    Forgot I had an autometer catalog in my dorm :doah:

    Looks like 0 ohms empty, 90 ohms full is what you're looking for.

    ::most:: aftermarket fuel level gauges work off the standard 0-90 ohms. I just finished making my list of gauged to replace my whole cluster, and just about every fuel level gauge I could find was the 0-90 ohm type
