Here's a question and just a "hey - have you thought about this" tip -

1. Where did you get your Omori gauges? I am DESPERATELY trying to get a 45mm boost gauge with the yellow needle, as i have 3 of the other gauges that are the same, and my vendor was unable to obtain one before Omori-NA went "belly up" or whatever happened to em.

2. Have you considered mounting the DIN panel on the OUTSIDE of the housing? That's the way I have mine mounted and I kinda like it like that. I basically used the ideas and directions from a few people on the site, but you basically screw in the chassis so it's "tight' but not "impossible to move"

Then you pull out the chassis so it is sticking out slightly (since it doesn't fit!) and attach the faceplate. Make it relatively snug. Then you can slide the whole thing in place, and tighten the allen screws on the outside - I think it looks alright, and while I was hoping to post pics with my matching Omori boost gauge, I guess that's going to have to wait.

I just installed my Omori 60 mm boost gauge and I didn't need to use a different T as suggested by Omori NA. I used the T fitting between the fuel pressure regulator and intake manifold. The vacuum hose that came with the gauge goes on the nipple fitting on the manifold perfectly.

Default It still needs some cleaning up...

The unit in the center is an MRT EBC and I haven't had the EGT probe installed yet. It'll look much nicer at the end of the weekend.

Thumbs up Gauges

Please describe for me what the three gauges are in the pod where the clock goes and what the ones on the pillar pod are. Also, it looks like you have a TT in place of the ashtray? Is that what I'm looking at? If that's the case, could you tell how you installed it and if you had to do a lot of fabrication?

I would think that being as the ECU is so close to the ashtray, it was easier to install the TT where the astray goes? Very interesting.

Great pics. Nice job, very clean and pro looking.

Dash pod has a Water Temp. Oil Temp and Oil Pressure.
Pillar Pod has Boost on top and EGT below.
TT was much easier to install in ash tray, wiring is all run behind the dash to the unit. The only thing I can point out about the install was I used velcro on the top of the TT to mount it, this makes for easy removal if necessary.
Thanks for the compliments.

Default DC Customs Gauge Mask kit

For those of you who do not know, I sell my "Gauge Mask kit" which is a CNC cut aluminum faceplate that allows you to mount 52mm gauges in the OEM housing. Here are examples of some satisfied customers:



Just PM me or email me at dcatapult@hotmail.com if you are interested.

Looks like there's a defect with your car. They should cover it though since they are the ones that put your steering wheel upside down.

Does anyone have a steering column mounted gauge, other than the stock boost gauge?

Thanks

Here's my 52mm Omori set up in the stock gauge housing (slightly fabricated so the gauges would sit flush against the aluminum face plate I made). I'm not sure if I like the look of the plate and may end up changing it (making a new one without the hex bolts or....):

Default some more reasons why Defis rock...

Have any of you Defi users figured out the "pressure differential" function? I didn't know that I had this function until just the other day. Its a pretty cool function.

Here's what it does: If you have a boost gauge and fuel pressure gauge you can press the "up" and "down" arrows at the same time and the fuel gauge will then start showing the difference in pressure instead of the actual fuel pressure. Its kind of like a poor mans air/fuel gauge.

I also found out how to adjust the brightness. I can have the gauges on full bright at night if I want to. Both of these functions stay set even when you turn off the car.

BF's with the version 2 contoller

With the controller set to differential pressure mode, you can see the (relative) pressure drop when you blip the throttle and the (relative) pressure rise when you let off the throttle. Most of the time the needle stays in the same place, just above the 3, or about 320kPa (I think).

The brightness is adjusted using the up and down arrow buttons.
