Gauges "Needed" for Turbo?
 
I got a AEM Wideband and AEM Boost/Vacuum gauge and buying my pillar but beside I buy the 2 pod trim one I was just making if there any other gauge I could use and go a 3 pod. I know Tom only requires AF/boost but wanted opinions

I got a oil pressure on top of the basic... but in reality with those two its enough.

Off top but I'd love to have your avatar in sticker form...

you dont have to mount the gauges in a pillar pod. you can modify an a/c vent and put another ontop of the steering column. another could go in the coin tray area.


stealth/sleeper is awesome.

Haha trust me my car looks like enough of a sleeper already never card for the vent I use my AC n heat all the time

I did this in the coin tray. Use 2 pieces of electrical 2"PVC, the inside diameter is exact to a 2 1/16 gauge.

what did you use to mold/attach them like that?

Mother Focus 11-10-2012 02:50 PM

I glued both tubes together and add some epoxy to set it in place inside the coin area, after that just filled with fiberglass resin to make it sturdy, sandpaper, filler and paint.

nice, going to do that too, but first need to assemble my new engine and put it back together.. damn I need to start my build thread in the FI section so I can get all my questions answered :D

Never though of that, I'm about to buy Tom's kit and turbo so I figured it prety easy sailing from there hope I'm not wrong.
