    If you don't mind, I can jump in here. I had 3 Prosport gauges and you can splice all the power wires together to get the desired affect. You can also splice all the ground wires together, as long as the splices are clean and direct. Twistcaps, crimps and shrink tape, etc are suggested to make sure your splices are adequately protected and tight. If you need any extra wiring, Radio Shack (or even Home Depot/Lowes) will have good extra wire you can use to extend from the Prosport gauge harnesses to its power/ground source. For that, I used the power/ground source of the clock in the center.

    ^^^ Agreed..... Splice the power, ground, and acc into the same location. I used the stereo harness to wire into.... it was easiest for me. I suppose the clock would work as well. I personally avoided it because of the airbag indicator though.

    If I may suggest.... with 6 gauges... you will draw attention... and visibility in high-fog conditions is low with that much interior light.

    For both of those reasons... I wired in an override switch to dim all the gauge lights, but keep the headlights on.

    Yellow/Green wire - ACC (to power your gauges)
    Violet wire - Illumination (to power the lights)
    Orange/white - Dimmer (optional - some gauges don't even have this feature)
    Black wire - Ground

    My advice would be to wire in an inline switch in the violet wire. When your headlights are on, your gauge lights are on.

    But when you flip the switch off, it will cut the illumination to the gauges (not the power, just the light).

    I like to call it my "stealth switch". I had it mounted in the center console for years... but when I did the I/C sprayer, I relocated it to one of the blanks on the left side of the steering wheel.

    ok this is really helping me i like the idea of the switch and im going to incoperate it into the system, now when you tapped into the stereo harness did you do it on the OEM side or the that your radio plugs into ( the wire adapters that are all over walmart and such for after marker radios) also how did you tap in alligator clamps solder

    Theoretically it doesnt matter.... So long as the stereo harness has the same colored wires.

    I would tap into the oem harness though.... If you ever change your stereo, youll change the aftermarket harness and be forced ro rewire everything.

    Yes.... Use vampire clips... They will work best, and you wont have to cut up your factory harness.

    red-power - draw from yellow/green wire in stereo harness
    black-ground - draw from black wire in stereo harness
    white-acc power for the white during the day - draw from the orange/white wire (dimmer)
    orange-parking lamp for the green at night - draw from the violet wire (illumination)

    No problem at all.....

    Just FYI..... here's a helpful website:

    hey boss i got my boost gauge wired up tonight question though
    when it goes though its opening thing it goes red i flick my inline switch on and it goes green
    but me shutting my head lights on and off has no effect on it what so ever
    gauge never goes white like i want when the head lights are off and stays green all the time

    the wires are like this
    red-power
    black-ground
    white-acc
    orange-illumination
    red also goes to the boost sender unit
    along with the black wire and and green wire from the gauge harness
    now in the instructions i got with the kit it said to hook the green wire up to illumination so they stay white when the head lights are off and green when they are on
    i tried that but the gauge goes all crazy and reads nothing
    any help???
    prosport gauge
    could it by my switch???

    Got me man..... I'm not familiar with multi-color prosports.

    Are you sure the "white" doesn't just mean "off"??

    I dunno man... maybe call Prosport.

    So I've officially decided to "swap" wheels. I have an $1800 set of Works that sit in the garage 95% of the time.... and a $750 set of Rotas that see more action than a truck stop hooker.

    So..... I picked these up today.

    BFG R1 race tires... about 70-80% Size 245/40/18

    They'll hang over a little bit on my 8" wide wheels, but I don't forsee any problems....

    So, as soon as I wear out my Hoosiers, I'm replacing them with some decent 255/40/17 all-seasons on my Works as my DD.. and my Rotas will be my track wheels.

    Ready?? Are you ready????

    $50 for the whole set
