Let's measure Boost, Oil Pressure and Water Temperature

I have always had an oil pressure gauge in my cars. Without a dipstick, monitoring oil pressure has become more important for me. I decided to add a water temperature gauge as well and a boost gauge that my girlfriend seems to be entertained with.

Since I never used the ashtray and I hardwire everything, I had no need for the ashtray. I had been running the open cubby since I got the car, but with the larger storage armrest, I never had anything in it. This location worked for my gauge needs.

Sorry but I am not sure if I want to try to take a picture with the boost gauge moving under WOT.

Hi! I'm sorry if I'm too late. The date of the thread is 2009. But I want to know how to connect the harness of oil pressure and oil temp gauges? Are they need their own sensors or I can connect to car stock sensors?
Thank you! Help please
