In my case, I dremmeled a small notch right where the hood ends and joins with the rest of the dash. The hood has some integrated clips, and kind of like a recessed border between these clips that hide behind the dash when the hood is in place. The notch is done on that border, enough to fit the wiring through but staying hidden under the dash. It looks like the wiring is squished between the hood and the dash, but it isn't.

Not a great pic, but you can see where the wires go into the dash:


At least that way there are no visible drilled holes on the cluster hood. After that, I ran the wires behind the cluster down to the fuse box for power, and behind the glove box for the wideband module.

Picked up a used 66mm autometer boost gauge for $20 yesterday. Opened it up and wired in 3 LEDs, then molded my old 52mm pod to work with the much bigger gauge. Used a dremel and heat gun, and modified the a pillar itself, but it needs more work. I'll refine it a bit more in the near future with body filler and whatnot.

Here is my new gauge set up, using a Edge CTS Insight monitor, little hard to read but i have Oil Temp, Egt, Oil pressure, ECT and Fuel pressure. Had to use Accessory sensors for everything but the ECT the insight pulled that off the OBD port




Here is better picture during the day, so you can see that the CTS is mounted in the pod with the pod mount, dont pay attention to the screen... sensors werent hooked up yet

I wanted to install my boost gauge somewhere that would not look out of place or something that was "added" for that matter, and at the same time be very clean. I was able to acquire the STI Genome Defi boost gauge. I don't really look at the gauge too often except when I look to verify correct vacuum and to make sure that I'm achieving the correct boost levels. So I went ahead and purchased the Subtle Solutions Gauge Bezel. I also decided to give it an OEM texture as well as retaining the factory 12v socket and light ring.

Who makes this pod? I am going to run a AEM wideband and put it in that corner......also would it be hard to get the wires to and from this pod?
Thanks

This is my second Autometer dual gauge bezel. The first one was flimsy and I ended up cracking it. The second one I think I got from ImportImageRacing but it wasn't advertised as an Autometer. When it arrived there was a piece of paper in it that had Autometer stamped on it with instructions. This one was a little darker and thicker. The top does not bend down like the first one (which was annoying).

Gauges are AEM digital boost and wideband.

^^^^^^^This pisses me off... I have Autometers too and a mechanical boost gauge. The gauge used to be a 20 psi in vac at idle and now its at 15 psi at idle.....while driving and letting off the gas the needle would sink down to 23-24 psi in vac and now it only goes down to 20 psi MAX.....so WTF

Might want to pressure test that gauge and make sure its accurate. You shouldnt be seeing that much vacuum

"Seeing that much vacuum" As in what part.....like I said it used to...

hit 21-23psi while driving and letting off the gas NOW it hits like 17-19psi

and at idle/red lights it used to sit at 20psi NOW it only drops to 15psi

It could be how you worded it and your units of measure. Vacuum reads in 'inhg'. -20inhg is around 9psi of vacuum.

So which is it?
