All matters what you are looking for. Those Omori gauges are ridonkulous in pricing. Electrical or mechanical makes a price difference too; with mechanical being less expensive.

The price your quote seems to be a real cheap price. I got mine for about 45 bucks from NewSouthPerformance. They sold a bundle including the T-fitting (reduces interior noise greatly) and steering column pod. Makes for a very slick install; many passengers assume it is stock.

I would recommend buying a kit. Get all you need at once -in one package- necessary for the total install.

Determine where you want to place it within the cabin as there are kits being sold packaged with the pods as well. A column mount , steering column, DIN. Search the forum for more ideas.

if you know where to look, vacuum tubing is about US$5-10 for lengths ranging from 3-10 feet.

T-fittings are easy (most hardware stores), but T-fittings with a flow restrictor in them keep VDO gauges from buzzing are a little tough. probably US$3 for one of those from a place lie NewSouthPerf or 42nd Draft Designs.

If you don't like cobbling all of the parts together, definitely get yourself a kit.
