how difficult is it to install aftermarket reverse glow gauges? im just curious if i should bother doing this, is it all plug and play or is there wireing you have to do that makes it messy?

also are there any available for NA, all i see is turbo guages
Gauges are universal for any car. The only ones that you don't want if you have NA are Boost and EGT.

For NA Go with:
Wideband, Oil Pressure, Oil Temperature, Water Temp, Fuel Pressure
In that order of importance depending on the number of gauges you want to run.

Get electronic gauges...they are much easier to install on a mid-engine car.
Mechanical gauges are cheaper....but they will not be easy to install on a MR2.

sorry i wasnt clear, i mean the guages behind the dash. like the speedo and all that. but thanks for the help. thankfully when i bought the car it already had oil pressure installed AND slotted brake rotors. i got a little lucky!

It is not that difficult to install.

The indiglo gauges I installed were a bit easier than the reverse glow gauges that I later installed.

You might need to grind out part of the OEM shroud to make room for various wires...depending on the position of the wires on the EL sheet.

However it is among the easier installs I have done on the car.
