When you up grade your gauges you must make sure that the ohm rating for the sender matches the gauge. There are several makers of gauges that will match stock senders. Just do allot of checking and matching first so you don't run into problems later.

You will have to get a gage for 1965-99 GM vehicles. The factory sending units from various mfrs use different resistance values and unless you match the gage to the unit, you will not get the proper readings. All after-market gages should say what applications they fit. You want 0-90 Ohm 1965-99 GM.
