Re: Guages

Update: 'A' pillar airbags are curtain bags rather than the usual steering wheel airbag (as is my understanding) so a pillar pod is what i'm going to go for. Gauges now being fitted wednesday morning.

Re: Guages

Should be cool. Might have to invest in a boost gauge and oil temp/pressure myself if they can go on the A pillar without having a negative effect on the airbag

The airbags are curtain bags that cover the windscreen. If the pod is held in place with something weak ie. velcro strips then it will be fine imo.

Will have the pod sprayed the same creme colour as the pillar, hopefully should be pretty unnoticeable from the outside of the car.

Re: Guages

i've got my afr fitted. oil pressure going in on wednesday.

but i don't know where to mount them in the stilo

Im thinking about cutting in to top glove box, but that might be a pain. as far as im aware there is no A pillar holder for stilo..?

Your afr looks good mate, but if I were you I'd look to see if its been wired to the right oxygen sensor.

I can't seem to find any stilo gauge pods...

If it was running that lean you would know about it from how it drove.

I reckon he hasn't wired it to the lamda in the exhaust before the cat, no problem though like you said he can do it again on wednesday.

They're sitting around at home waiting to be done, just on the back burner for a week or two, should be sorted soon enough!

Re: Guages

Could it be that you have the wrong type of lambda for the guage? Something to do with wideband and narrowband readings???
