    Wiring Gauges

    Ok so my boost Gauge had just enough wire to run it where i wanted but i recently had a friend give me a AFR gauge and from where im mounting it theres not enough wire with the gauge to wire where i want... Has anyone else had the same issue? If so what kind of wire would be the best to use to link it all together?

    Solder the same gauge wire to the wire you are trying to extend.

    Just go to Radio Shack or even Pep Boys/Autozone (or even Home Depot for that matter). They have thin gauged copper wire that you can just splice (solder, twist cap it, crimp connectors, etc) into the gauge wire. Easy peasy.

    Is it a Wide Band AFR gauge?

    Really? I have about 5 feet of extra wire tucked under my dash for my wideband.

    Definitely solder. It's more time consuming than crimping, but your signals will be cleaner, and almost 0% chance of it rattling apart.
