    wiring harness

    Slowly working on my 5.3 conversion I wanted to know what would be the best wiring harness to use because I'm looking for one that I can use my stock gauges.

    What year truck are you putting the engine in? The stock gauges and sending units will work on the GEN3 engine if you use some adapters.

    If you have the coin to spare I'd switch to the dakota gauges. Those things are cool!

    Just trying to make this swap easy as possible. If that will make things easier I get them.

    ive use the DD gauges for my genIII swap and they are cool looking
    but for funtionality worthless.
    still gotta use their oil pressure sending unit.. the GM OE wont range
    correctly.
    water temp, again have to use their sending unit.
    tach, that was a breeze, set to 4-cylinder low voltage and
    speedo was ok, so that $600+ for a tach and speedo to me isnt a deal.
    i bought a 2003 (SS w/trans temp) cluster $150 and wired it OE and
    all works...
