Awesome! Thank you. I'll probably go the OEM route

Thats pretty neat switch. I wonder what other unusual actions we can make switches for. Make it look like a cockpit!

I just figured it would be nice for the track in case I want to tone things down a bit on the fly.

Here's another lower shot:



I ran the vacuum lines across the engine bay and through the large grommet in the fender (along with all the other wiring I have done). Plenty of room in there. The MBC was mounted into a hole that was already existing under the dash. I don't know why it was there, but it was a perfect fit for the bolt.

I was a bit worried that the extra vacuum lines would cause problems, but I haven't noticed any issues so far. Spool and boost control seem to work just fine, but I would still like to pull a log to confirm. The only oddity is that you can hear the MBC venting air once the ball/spring opens up (as it should). It's just a slight hiss and by that time the EWG is open so it doesn't matter anyways!

My new and improved gauge pod in progress. Sits no higher than a standard clock pod, but with the ability to hold up to 6 gauges.
The new pod:


Factory clock bezel next to the new pod



Highlander: Is that real CF or is it coated / covered. I have the factory carbon look dash setup in my STi and I would like to make this new pod look as close to it as possible once finished.

It's part of the alarm system => interior sensor In UK they were obligated to install an alarm due to high amount of auto theft

I covered it with real CF It was my first time trying to work with CF, so I'm not yet up to fabricating stuff in CF.. Covering will do the trick for now

May have posted a couple of these before, but didn't see any posts under my name in this thread, so figured I post. Here is the interior with some minor touches and stereo work. Not shown is the 'big 3' setup with upgraded battery, terminals, and rewired with 0 and 4ga. Cleared/painted headlights. Also, all interior/external door skins, floor, and roof have 2-3 layers of Rammatt, and typically 2 layers of ensolite. Unbelievably quiet..

Painted dash panels with a voltage meter in the vent. Vent is still functional, although flow is reduced. Amplifiers are under each front seat, so I blocked off the floor vents under the dashboard, so all the floor airflow is routed under the amplifiers for cooling.


Painted dash, Pioneer DVD player, auxiliary input in a center console knock out panel, and a distribution block in the ashtray. It takes 4ga wiring in, and two 8ga wirings coming out to power the amps under the front seats.


Padded armrest with an iPod beltclip installed on the underside of the armrest so it is easily removable. A single red LED was added to the front panel in the armrest so it is easy to see in the console at night. Auxiliarly input is also visible.


Better view of the iPod and cable. A small hole with a grommet was made in the armrest so the wiring could be routed under the center console to the stereo. There are quite a few other little touches throughout the car, but these are the most useful ones for a daily driver... All modifications were done by myself...

Default sun visors

Certainly not the biggest mod on this forum!...
After changing the seats, and then the door cards, I thought a touch of blue somewhere higher would balance everything. So I took apart the visors, reupholstered them and added my little personal touch...
Sun glasses holder on passenger side:

Note the snap on the leather strip...

the holder can be clipped flat as to not bother the passenger's view or for a more even look.

I got it years ago (back when that iPod was new). It came with a belt clip, which is what I used to mount it in the car, and little clip so it could be proped up. No idea if the new ones come with that or not, but I got it through amazon. A little pricey if I remember correctly, but it's lasted forever, and I love having it mounted there in the car.

Isn't that an odd spot to be looking for changing what music you have playing?
I have my iPod sitting in front of the shifter with both cables going in through the ashtray hole. The charging cable then comes back out of the same hole and into my USB cigarette lighter thing, and the aux cable goes up to my stereo. I have enough extra cable to pull the iPod about 18" from the hole (have the rest tied up under the stereo so it doesn't look messy) so I can change music while still keeping an eye on the road.

I'd like to route my wires half way through the center and have them pop out from one of the coin holders next to the parking brake or something, but going all the way to the cupholder/armrest just appears to make it more difficult to use it unless you're not moving.

Ahh, didn't think of that. I wish my deck was smart enough to do that.

I've always hated the stock incandesant (or however you spell it) bulb that was the high mount 3rd brakelight for wingless. So I put in the led strip from a wrx wing. Much brighter and looks way cooler at night

How exactly did you mount the LED strip there?
