You have electrical gauges, thats why its labeled as such. Mechanical gauges would bring oil into the cab via a hose where electrical gauges use an electronic sender, which you didn't buy by the sound of things. But even if you did you would still need a pro to install it.

My advice take them to a shop that know what to do.

mechanical don't really work on the Celica because everything is done by electronics...

idk what gauges you have, so it's hard to help...

most of that stuff, i have no idea where it would go.
