Listen, please stop being so lazy and use the Yahoo search function to find a honda/acura car forum. Type in honda forum or acura forum. These are online car clubs and I guarantee you that they will give you the answer you want, many times with pictures. You need a valid email account to register and it's free!!The water temp gauge may have a sensor that must be installed on the engine or perhaps it will piggy-back (use the same wires) as the engine temp sensor. The air/fuel gauge must get a signal from the Oxygen sensor, again... use the car forum so that you will find out what wires to tap into, the oxygen sensor is located in the exhaust manifold or exhaust piping of your car. These gauges require some mechanical knowledge to install. For the oil gauge, you may be able to tap into an existing oil line or the oil pan, but you should only do this if you are confident in such things. You don't want an oil leak just because you want some cool looking gauges. Good luck, not trying to be an a** but people buy gauges and think they will plug in, they won't. They are more or less custom installations.

As your vehicle is only a 2004 - is it not still under warranty? Mucking around yourself if it under warranty will void it.You could definately benefit from joining an online forum for Honda owners - just do a search and you should find several. You should know that many cities also have Honda owners clubs - try looking for one in your area.As for the gauges - leave it to the experts - take your vehicle to an authorized Honda dealership as in the end it will cost you less.
