hmmm I can't remember how the new Legacy interior looks like, but have you guys ever though of fabricating a mount right above the normal gauges? I mean on top of the dash? I'll have a similar problem, but instead I'll be doing a stealth install of all my gauges, they're all going in the glovebox.

Thumbs down

I have seen pics from Hyper Rev w/ guages mounted on both side behind the steering wheel or on top of the driver side dash. They are very MICKY MOUSE alike. I hate that as well.

I have a 91 Legacy so things are slightly different for me, but I have my boost guage on the right top of my steering column, not because I couldn't find a better spot, but because this is where I wanted it. It is in the same general area as everything else, so a glance down to look at it is not a struggle, nor time consuming. To me it's purposeful.

I also sat in Adam Bloom's RS and he has a guage on each side of his steering column as well. Very easy to have a look at while driving. Again, pruposeful, but that's just my opinion. Ultimatly, you should put them wherever you feel most comfortable looking at them, not where they look good.

Wink Crazy idea about mounting guages

I dislike the idea of mounting the guages on A pillar (too many people done that and doesn't quite fit well in a sedan), thus trying to find other "good" place to fit the guages.

My car is a MY00 Legacy, not Impreza, so interior will be different than Impreza.

Orginally, I was going to mount the guage to 2 center A/C vent then I will use a vent cover from a 93 Civic and direct the air out of the top of the dash. Since this involves a great deal of chopping up the dash, I put it as the last option.

Then my weird instinct tells me I can mount the guages at the top portion of the door panel. This way I will have 3 guages facing me and well hidden from outside. If it is well worked, it might turn out to look great. Problem is now I have to cut the door panel and the door frame. If the cutting of the 2 part doesn't line up......

Where else would you guys mount the guages? I really like some input from you guys, thanks.

Unfortunately the dash is pretty well packed and there's not a lot of room for anything so large, especially 2-3 of the same type thing. I've got a boost gauge coming and i'm not really looking forward to putting it on the A-pillar so i'm ine same dillema.

Hi

I mounted my boost gauge in the drivers side airvent, it fits in quite well and the airvent still works (not quite as well as before though) - its fairly easy to see as well being high up
