Okay, maybe I am just being stupid here...but I have a question that is confusing the hell out of me.

You state to connect the white wire for illumination and the red wire for power. Well my gauge only has one post on the back for power and nothing separating the power from illumination. If I am connecting a boost gauge there is no need for power other than for illumination. So... how would I wire this?

The second gauge I have is the wideband A/F gauge and it says to connect it straight to the ignition switch. With that in mind, should I simply run both power wires (boost illumination and wideband gauge) to the ignition switch??

My thought is this. If I wire the boost gauge to the light switch then it will only turn on when the lights are on. With the A/F gauge connected to the ignition then it would illuminate each time I start the car. Wired this way, they would be operating differently. If I can connect them both to the ignition switch - where is that wire located??
