That looks pretty good. easy to see.

here is what i have planned, they will need to be touched up and painted before they go on.







Gauges- AEM wideband, J&S knock sensor, AEM fuel pressure, AEM oil pressure, and AEM Truboost.
I have the Greddy Profec B Spec II boost controller, but i got the AEM for a nice price.

can you handle?

lol overboard on the gauges. I'm thinking truboost and wideband on the pillar, oil and fuel on the dash cluster and obviously the J&S where it is. Wish I knew how much amperage those draw, probably not more than 20. Maybe we can find out. I'd like to run them all into their own harness, maybe run all the power wires to one larger gauge wire. The ground side might be a little tricky, I've heard of interference if they don't have their own ground. It's not hard but makes troubleshooting a little harder if one goes out.

Signal wires and all that could all be routed the same direction. Wish they made wires with more than 3 colors available to buy. I think 16 gauge should be fine though.

I know most of them will probably have a wire for the dimmer. I ran my gauge to the dimmer wire on the head unit but that may be a bad idea for a ton of gauges.

I imagine they are all electronic?

yup, that's the placement i had in mind. for some reason i think i picked up a dual vent pod as well.. i'd like to ditch the pillar pod and use the vent pod.

lol.. that electrical talk doesn't make too much sense to me.. but i'll learn!

all gauges are electronic.

I need to pick up a catch can still.

eh yay so we get to install sensors too. lol.

I'll try to make sense of it for you. I won't forget to bring my multimeter either. Hopefully I can be there it would be fun. Jobless currently though.

my vents are blocked because I hate stuff above the dash.

i have so many things to do, and it's a bit overwhelming. you don't happen to have a shop manual do you?

Anyone going to the auto x at Miller this weekend? Its Idaho vs. Utah, I hear. I was going to try to go, but my wife says I have spent too much time/money on my car getting it ready for the auto x season. So I'll have to wait for the closer and less expensive race next weekend in Pocatello, ID. Don't want her to get the wrong idea.

Its a long shot but does anyone have some OEM wheels? I need them fairly quick. Any style is ok. Prefer 15's. Thanks. Tires on them is ok too. Our tires are shot and 2 of the wheels are bent.

I went out to Miller this weekend, it was a very good time. I'm getting better in the Miata.. still have about 1.8 seconds to make up before i'm in the top 10 mix.

I'm about 80% sure i'll be heading to Pocatello on Saturday, i need more seat time. We've got a two day event this weekend as well. so if everything falls into place that'll be 3 autox days in a row!
