You can probably go to Home Depot or Lowes for that I would think

i like the way it looks with the delete ..my question is should you put mesh somewhere as to keep out the dirt also would water be a concern when it rains..... thanks

I have Defi's and love them since they match. I also have the AEM uego, doesn't look as nice but works just as well. Also I like analog gauges more than digital. Defi and AEM are probably the most accurate gauges on the market though, so good luck!

Rancer we got it at home depot. Mesh will still let water and etc through....

I have defi advanced cr boost and aem wideband.

I swear by defi. Seen so many other gauges scrap out. You get what you paid for. Honestly idk why celery says it's not worth it...are they more expensive than prosport? Yes...but they are more than twice as good. Its like real brides and replicas...they do the same thing but you never hear real brides falling apart..

Just remember all defi besides the racer series need control units.

Few pics of the dirty car
Is that yellow in your headlights because you made your day time lights a yellow bulb or did you do something else? I love that look but have only seen it in a few pictures and I'm really curious

The edges are clean. it doesn't even look like it was cut. they used a dremel with a cutting wheel and then a grinding or sanding wheel to smooth everything out. had to test fit a few times to get it perfect. ill get you some up close pics tomorrow

Try taking some vacuum line and cutting it down the middle then placing on the edge of the bumper that was cut. it will act like a trim and cover up any rough edges. if you do it right it will look oem

mesh wouldn't really help keep out dirt or anything... there's nothing back there but the fender liner anyway. the intake filter sits a little higher up then where the fog hole is

I originally cut mine with a Dremel and cutoff wheel and it did not look good. Way too much heat. I was probably just doing it wrong. I was planning on doing some trim along the edge, but then I forgot, lol. I think I'd rather just have a nice, clean cut.

My cousin has the red racer defi in his evo x and its pretty nice. seems very accurate no vibrations and matches his cluster color which is almost identical to our subaru ones. I have also been toying with getting the aem boost gauge with the interchangeable face plates but was wondering if they came with the small mounting pod as well. I know for a fact the defi racer comes with a small mounting pod like my spt gauge did. worst case scenario ill pick up an smy cluster they seem good. any other input?

yeah the defi is extremely responsive, instantly responds to the slightest change in pedal pressure..although I have nothing to compare it to

no it's not out of the way or in your face. you can easily see it and its not visible from outside. i HATE when you can see gauges from outside the car like on the a pillar or etc.

the only reason i'd say DONT do the race series is because if you want to expand to more gauges you'll have to individually re-wire EACH additional gauge. with the control unit all you do is wire in the control unit. the gauges just plug into the control unit and you keep daisy chaining them. the only thing you have to mess with are the sending units in the engine bay. it just makes everything so convenient. and you can set warnings, peaks, live view peak, record and replay. i know you don't think you'll ever record, i didn't either but i use it to see if i'm tapering like i should, if i'm heating peak or when i was adjusting my recirc to see if i set the spring too tight. honestly its great because you don't have to have your eyes glued to the gauge when doing a pull.

just my $.02

Idk how you monitor your gauges at wot when they are all the way up there...

SMY cluster is perfect IMO. Gauges are right in your face all the time. The plastic feels cheaper then oem but other then that fitment is perfect. I might have jpm coach works have their way with it in the future

everyone says this, next time i see you sit in my car. they are not out of the way, you have to move your eyes the same amount to look at the SMY as the pod i have.

dont knock it till you try it.

and idk how you drive around with that shift knob

Well you have to move your eyes up to your head liner at WOT to see whats going on up there...

Maybe it's just me but I like to have everything I need to look at in one place. Tach, speedo, gauges etc.

Wc lathe werks knob. Heavy as hell and makes throws real nice. Matches the interior pretty well if you ask me
