Per their website "Will Auto Meter gauges fit into my stock dash to replace the OEM gauges?

Auto Meter instruments are not designed to be exact replacements for original gauges, they are intended to improve a stock dash. The Specifications page displays illustrations with dimensions of all the instruments we offer. The custom car or truck builder may be able to mount some instruments directly into the dash, however they will most likely need to modify or build a completely new dashboard. Also visit the Auto Meter Gauge Works sections for more mounting options"

Might want to goto www.autometer.com and select the series you were looking for. It will be hit and miss depending on the gage.
