I use to have a WRX :(

Question Has anyone mounted a boost gauge under the ash tray?

Ok I finally got a real boost gauge 2" and was wondering if anyone has mounted it flush in that little change tray thats under the ash tray.It looks like it would fit in there.I really dont want to mount it out in the open,I like the stealth look.

I think it'd be really hard to keep an eye on your boost levels mounted down there

IMO

Default gauges

I have replaced the ashtray with an hks turbo timer and below this I have two autometer guages (boost/egt) mounted. Basically, I dremeled two round holes in the plastic dash stuff and placed the gauges in there. Then I superglued them in from the bottom. There is plenty of room behind for wires/tubes. Looking at them is fairly easy (it's not like you have to keep your eyes glued on them anyways) and I like the fact that I have my stock clock and I don't have some massive pillar pod obstructing my view.

Camperguy,

Check out www.projectWRX.com . That guy mounted two gauges down in the space below the ashtray.

Just to add a bit extra to the mounting of gauges in the ashtray area.

Autometer put out a gauge mount kit consisting of 3 black rings that allow you to slope the gauges a little toward you.
I now have 2 egt gauges in that position so no argument on where to place the egt sensor. One for the drivers side and one for the passenger side
