Default gauge wiring

ok, well im a ricer and do ---- old school so i have alot of gauge's (fuel pressure, amps, wideband, boost, oil pressure, and a vafcII, my question is what is the best way to power all of these, should i just run the power from all of them, make a little mini harness then just run wire into a fuse ?? or is there something better i should hook them up to, cause i have a 30 amp fuse for my gauge cluster but if i hook it all up when i turn my head lights on my dash lights will shut off but all my gauges power up, i think its drawing all the power from the cluster, whats the best thing to tap into or should i tap into a couple different ones ?? p.s. its a 91 civic if you ddidnt know

Run a 12 guage wire from the battery with a 20 amp fuse. Might be a little overkill, but then you could power other stuff in the future.


You might also try a distribution block to make wiring up things a little easier.
