Stock gauges work very well.

The bottom white line means 140 degrees F. Somewhere in the middle is 180 - 190 F. If you get to redline, it's time to shut off the engine and figure out :wtf

Okay, I read a few posts about people's water temp gauges failing... However, I still would like to know my oil pressure and volts!

Nice gauge set. ^o)

I think Turbo Dan-O has an OEM AM/FM Cassette stereo that would fill that other hole very nicely.

The way you have your engine dressed, it's going to be easier to attach the transmission and lower both of them into the car at the same time with a cherry picker. Otherwise, it's going to take a little re-configuration to get the engine to drop in with the transmission in the car.

I just may do that.... As far as dropping it in goes, I have to wait a few days for all that- kinda sucks to have it all ready to go but no more time to spend on it! For a stereo, I absolutely must have a aux imput for my phone- I don't care at all about radio or CD player I just need the aux plug. All I listen to is podcasts or pandora.

Check out the link in my sig... there's some cheap Chinese wonder stereos I linked to, they have AUX, SD, USB. No CD.
No idea if they're any good, but at only $25/$28? Worth a risk, perhaps. Sure are ugly, though. ^o)

Oh, and you're missing the stock stereo cage.
So you've got some options, there.
You can:
A. Be the guinea pig on the stereo mount kit ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/190965201385 ) in the aforementioned thread in my sig, Or
B. Buy an OEM stereo cage from me, Or
C. Try to find your own at a junkyard, Or
D. Make your own?

A note, I HAVE used the brand that makes that kit before, and had good results; I have just not used THAT kit before.

I made a stainless steel frame that mounts behind those upper and lower black plastic pieces and the steel frame mounts to the 4 factory holes
