Gauge Pod
 
Does anyone know where I could find a pillar gauge pod for the 08-11 Focus?

Did some searching and came up on Andy's auto parts and found the password jdm and spyder gauge pods look the best can't tell if they go on the pillar.

the password jdm is a universal pillar mount. spyder ones are dash mount. i haven't seen any specific to the 08-11 focus. but there are universal ones that can be made to work. or you can always fiberglass a full pod or mold in a universal pod.

no there arent any specific ones for the 08 11's plus you have a pillar airbags to contend with so unless you want your gauges to become missles in a car accident i suggest you dont do it.

I had A pillar gauges for my turbo setup. I got a universal dual gauge pod from Glowshift and I used a heat gun to form/shape into my a pillar.


BTW, there isn't any air bags in the A pillar.

White cord was used for AFR Datalogging with the SCT flasher.

I never datalogged mine when I went header and have had no issues. Also I not have gauges in my car to monitor my A/F or my other parameters.
