Guages

Anybody decided to fit any yet? Boost? oil temp? oil pressure? etc
If so how have you routed them?
Where have you mounted them?


I'll be doing mine soon enough, am I going to be the first?
Got a few ideas of where and had a few words with a local friend who builds custom pods as there are not many places in the GP that stick out as being suitable for the mounting.

EDIT: I know gauges is spelt wrong. I failed.

Re: Guages

Why not just on the centre... Or would that cause problems trying to route them?

Re: Guages

ou have to mainly think about drilling holes in the dash which you don't really want to be doing. The grande doesn't have double din radio.

I've got a few ideas already I'd be interested to see what other people think of positioning.

Well I have a friend with his own garage in leek. he's a good mechanic and he'll be taking a look at mine. He can get the fitments at cost price aswell. Just come along with me next weekend.
Thanks coyle thanked for this post

Have a look what gauges you want (size, make etc) aswell. I want it to look factory I've already asked for a quote for pods and I might even give the pod construction a bash myself.

Re: Guages

I have seen a pillar pod for the GP somewhere. I will try and find the link.

Edit: http://www.absmotorsport.net/product...oducts_id=5169

I would be intrested in boost and oil pressure and battery voltage. My only thought is what about the air bag on the a pillar?

Yes smoked ones for definite. I don't want anything on the dash to look out of place. Look on the internet might be your best bet. Ebay yields bargains just make sure you check out the manufacturer and make sure they're decent.

Revotec do good guages and supply the proper fitting kits and can advise on t-pieces (boost gauge wise) and their prices aren't too bad either. They know their stuff and have a gauge for every occasion!

Demon tweeks will stock gauges and again they know their stuff, but you will usually pay top whack, don't expect any discounts.
