I'm long over due for a boost gauge. I hit up the guys up in Megan Racing HQ. Asked for the hook up for a boost gauge. Next thing I know, I'm following the DIY thread of installin this blasted gauge.




Now I'm not going to be an annoying bitch. But today I will... for the love of god, release a damn center gauge pod already!

I made phone calls and sent txt messages trying to find a solo pod that just mounts one gauge. Megan offered their universal single pod but it looked like Jeremy Clarksons teeth. GCTuner couldn't even help! lol I hit up my good ol pal Chris from VT to find where I could get one. Told me PepBoys, I tried at autozone and failed. I was worried I was going to fail again and end up not mounting the gauge. THEN I FOUND THE STUPID POD I WAS LOOKING FOR!

I spent an hour looking for the right spot for this.

I took everything apart. Not a big deal. Easy as cake.



Spent some time trying to picture where it should go.



I finally found the spot and position I wanted. Ignore the trash can and microwave next to the laptop. ;-)



Finally the night came when I finished installing it. Took it out for a spin. Its very distracting and could possibly cause me to crash sometime soon for looking at it all the time... :woah:




I know it doesn't match. I was not looking for things to match. I didn't like the way most of the gauges out there look. Except for the Defi gauges, but does are the price of a car payment. So I'm good with this one.

Here's what they look like. Better look at them from the site.






Now FLAME ME! :mad2:

Can't really tell. Did you drill?
Yup, made two holes. One for the wire and one for the pod. If you look close enough, you can see the wire on the left of the pod.

Which little gauge cup is that? Does the wire come put of the back or the middle section?

Idk. I found it @ pepboys. I'll take pics of it later. The wire comes out from behind the cup.

How is that mounted? You have a daylight pic?
its mounted from underneath, not on top. I still need to cover the gap and paint the plastic cover to match. Ill do that some other time, works fine for me right now
