need oil guage and exhaust question

Can anyone guide me to where to find an oil guage for a 68 gt500?

Also, has anyone had their exhaust manifolds "honed" or "extruded"? Does it help with flow and add power?

Weren't the extra guages in the 68 Shelby's Stewart Warner? As for extrude honing, it does a very good job and I would think that it could help a bit on exhaust manifolds but I wouldn't expect too much becuase the design and layout of a cast iron manifold is as much of the problem as the restrictive size. If you are trying to squeeze a few more ponies out of the Shelby then it might be a good mod but you will need to find someone who has done it to get a real world assessment to determine if it is cost effective.
In looking at the flow of my exhaust manifolds, I am thinking that extrude honing would have minimal effect. Ford exhaust pinches up pretty tight where the bolt holes are, and I don't see a way to improve that.

Too bad, manifolds are a lot less hassle than headers.
