Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge Install

Does anyone know how to install this gauge? What is required to get it to work? I'm going to be getting one in the near future so I just want to know how it's done. It's an Auto Meter Ultra Lite gauge as well, if that helps any...

Give it power, ground, and run a wire to an 02 sensor. That's it. I found it easier to tap into the ECU harness rather than run a wire under the car.

Easy enough. I know it's a narrow band gauge and I should get a wide band to get actual readings but I feel I can get a general reading from the narrow band. Dontcha think? Plus I'll be getting a full dyno tune this summer so I won't have to worry about the Air/Fuel being off. I guess I'm getting it to set of my interior a little bit more, but it'll be cool getting a general idea of where the reading is at...

What about a fuel pressure gauge? What is required to install that? And does anyone know what the typical fuel pressure is for a Mustang?

Theirs nothing wrong with getting an A/F for looks, just don't expect to be able to tune the car with it. You'll know if the car's rich or lean at WOT but not by how much. Other than at WOT it's not much help, but it does look cool .

I'll let someone else help with the fuel pressure gauge install, do remember though that you'd need to get an electric unit to install into the car (can't run a fuel line through the firewall). Stock fuel pressure is 39 psi.
