Which guages are you replacing, the factory cluster in its entirety or just a couple ? I had oil/water and tach in the Phantom series and they were all manual. If you are speaking of electric I have no experience with them. I do believe that when you order you specify "GM Ford MOPAR" or whatever and they give you the wiring codes. Simple cut and splice I'm sure.

I don't have autometer gauges, but I swapped out all my Fiero gauges and build a custom harness to connect them. It's not that hard.

Also, all the Fiero gauges are already electric, so it should be just a matter of splicing the wires together.

And do you have an LT1 powered Quicksilver??! I'd love to see pics of that

Yep, replaced all plus added a few extra gauges.
To my knowledge there is no custom wiring harness.
Tideous work ...thank goodness I had a mechanic that atually enjoys that sort of stuff.

I thought the original speedo converted the speed signal and sent it back to the ECM. How did you overcome that Tina?

I'll tell how I did it...I still have the original circuit board for the speedo buried behind the dash, so the ECM still gets the signal after it goes through the divide by two circuit.

I'm going to do something almost identical to tina's when I do my interior build up. Why does the spedomer return to the ecu? What happens if it does'nt? I don't use the shift light or cruise control.
