i'll be getting my 60mm's (defi BF)- personally, 60's look more fitting than the 52's. but, and respectfully, to each his own.

i put my link meter v2 in my glove compartment, running the wiring through a small hole i drilled- stealth. clean. i'm happy. what do you guys think?

to defi owners- where did you guys put your control unit?

also, to anyone w/ the greddy A/F and the defi meter hood- any fitment issues? i assume it's a nonissue, but just pooping out the question just in case.

Yes and know... When subee-sound.com was running good (it's pretty much dead now) Kevin and I designed this for my RS, he mad it and it turned out so good that he desided to sell them. I really miss it as my MY97 is a different dash/layout and there is no where to even consider something like this.

e-mail Kevin supersubee@cox.net or kevin@subee-sound.com and ask him about it. he could probablly throughs something together real quick... only issue will the the lack of a storage pocket (bottom section).

I'm subscribing to this thread so I'll remember to post pics when I get my gauges in.

BEHOLD!, I will have ALL of the Defi BF gauges (mwhahaha). They will be mounted in a Defi pod and a triple Lotek A-pillar pod. In addition, I will move my two 60mm Apex'i EL gauges to the space below the cigarette lighter.

So basically, It'll be a frickin' light show when I start up the car.

I was stupid enough to get an early and a later version of the Lotek pillar pods. Neither one of them was 60mm. I had to use a file to make the holes bigger. I prefer the early version of the pod. I don't think the gauges are pointing away too much. If they were pointing right at me I'd get a weird reflection off of the Defi BF gauges. I'd see three convex reflections of my tiny head.

I would like to see a pillar pod that doesn't create such a huge blindspot, though.

romoranger, I am would like to see the aluminum back plate...

I too have the column-mounted Subaru gauge, so I don't know if I will get the full blown gauge pack. I had considered getting just the housing and putting the stock clock and and an EGT or air/fuel ratio gauge in it with a Subaru decal (like the WRC car).

Thoughts...?

Installed gauges (in consol):
oil pressure
amp draw
water temp
soon enough a 5.6lcd sceen should be going in just above the gauges.
sorry, but i dont have any pics of the rest of my dash.

Stuff a trunkmonkey in the hole. That should stun people. Nobody expects a trunkmonkey.

almost forgot...I went out and got a 60mm (2 3/8 in) hole saw today. I drilled 2 holes in the flat area below the cigarette lighter. I then had to Dremel a little bit because the edges curve up. Anyway, I remounted 2 60mm gauges there.

lessons:
*Drill s--l--o--w--l--y. When that hole saw digs into the plastic, the drill will go flying! Your hand will go with it. AMHIK.
*Use gauges smaller than 60mm is possible, unless you are a good Dremeller. I'm not. I'm lucky not to be in the hospital.
*Deep gauges like the Apex'i EL units fit. There's a lot of room under there. I did snip off the rubber nipple under the carpet, though.
*Don't expect to see the gauges very well, unless you're reeeeeal tall.
