don't use that nylon tubing that came with the gauge. they break easy. run down to the hardware store and get 7ft of 1/8 inch copper tubing. cost me 2.75. you can also get steel braided line for like 45 dollars.

with that copper tubing will i still be able to run it threw my firewall and everything pretty easily without bending it real bad? i got a gauge pod that replaces my clock on the 94 gt so hopefully ill be able to run it up there. thanks for all the help

I had a bad experience in the past with copper tubing. I prefer the plastic tubing over the copper. Steel braided line is the best though.

Well everyone that i have talked to have told me to get the steel braided line or the copper line because the nylon line can break/crack and then you have a mess inside your car..so i think im gonna go with the copper line rather than taking the chance of the nylon stuff breaking. Does anyone know if its difficult to run?
