Does/has anyone added an seperate fuel level gauge on a stock setup? Aim is super cool and doesnt have a pid for the fuel guage on their dash for the gt350 so i have no clue what amount of fuel i have in the car. Would like to tap into the sending unit and run a autometer in the dash vent or something

Assuming the OEM sender uses resistance, you'd have to know the ohm range of the OEM sender and try to find a gauge that uses the same range.
You can add fuel to the Aim dash by adding an adapter to convert the resistance to a 0-5V output. You still need to know the OEM resistance range to have the adapter calibrated. It's been a while but I'm pretty sure I used Iron Canyon Motorsports for it but that was for an SN95 so can't help with your settings.

The in tank senders are not very stable or accurate during track conditions. I don't think you will see accurate informations. What you might try is picking up the fuel flow numbers in lbs/hr and converting that into a formula to read number of gallons. I think Chris @captdistraction might be able to help get the correct CAN info.
