We wanted to introduce ourselves here, as we are out of Bow, New Hampshire. A few of you might have met us at Wicked Big Meet. We had a great time showing off our prototypes and chatting with everyone. We are a new vendor, but not new to this community. We both have 2011 STi's and frequently auto-x here in NH. You will see us more and more at meets as well.

In the past few months, we have been designing and testing, a new gauge pod for the 08+ impreza/WRX/STi platform. It is made to directly replace the vent on the drivers side, but still allow full function of the airflow. The vent gauge pod will fit most 52mm gauges. We wanted to make a gauge pod solution that looks like it should be there from the factory and is more subtle than installing an A-pillar mount. We think you guys will enjoy it as much as we do.

Here is a rendering of the finished product:


Installed Prototype:



We are doing a pre order/group buy right now HERE

That looks pretty slick.
How do you manage the connections at the back of the gauge?

There are 2 ways to do it. You can sneak the wires in between where the vent connects in the back. We just dremeled a slot from underneath on ours. The vent will still work either way.

We are concentrating on the successful launch of the vent pod before we dive into another project.

Maybe earlier models, I'd snag one for my 06 right away.

I've seen some before, but haven't been able to find where to buy them.

We are currently designing a gauge pod for the 02-07 crowd.

Awesome, don't forget how many people still run the older cars, and don't abandon support until you absolutely have to if you want to work on a stellar rep around here. (My opinion..)

Orphaned products suck when it's something you count on. You may also be able to offer some group buys to fund the designing of other more application specific stuff, (for the Forester, Legacy/Outback guys.)
