    There should be a couple of plugged holes on the drivers side floor board, possibly one where the clutch master cyl would mount up. IF not you can drill a small on in over by the relay panel where the wiring harness goes thru.
    As for where the sensor goes, i honestly have no clue since ive never installed one ive just repaired the stock guage.

    Looks like a pretty good place since it really isnt covering anything.

    You can tee into the port the factory sender is on. There are other galley plugs you can use also, but I'm afraid I can't give you specific locations.
