Im looking to putting in gauges into my 98 seville. Where can i find the wire to tap into for the RPM gauge and also the Oil PSI gauge. I have the service manual i just cannot find it in there. Any ideas guys?

Im looking at the manual now. Would it be tapped into the PCM Connector which the RPM would be going to Tachometer Output(White/Blackwire) and the Oil psi go to the Oil pressure input (Tan/Black)?

Saw your other post - the tach that's already in the car is accurate. The oil pressure sending unit, on the oil filter adapter, is a go-no go unit - it does not transmit a variable voltage which would drive an electric gauge. You need to install a pipe T at the filter adapter, retain the present sending unit and either run an electrical gauge off a second proper sender or run a mechanical gauge using a capillary off the other side of the T.

You start tapping into PCM wiring and you may open a Pandora's Box.
