The airbag pushes the a pillar towards the glass. The same way it does the oem pillar. The only downside to the jcs pod is the paint bubbles under high heat.

That's a shame about the bubbling. I thought the plastic was actually colored before being molded. That wouldn't hold up well down here in the summer I suppose. Guess I might look into the vent gauge pod if I want another gauge.

That is the problem JCS pods. Both of mine bubbled in the summer and eventually cracked where the pod was molded to the pillar. This why wrapping the pillar is the way to go IMHO. You get the form factor and none of the issues I described.

I have three 60mm one year production limited edition Defi Advance C2's (blue) that just showed up... also a 52mm Innovate LC-2 (blue), and I'm getting another 52mm Defi Advance BF (blue)

I can't really post yet because I'm doing a JDM V7 STi dash swap in my JDM S/tb Forester... I am going to be changing all the dash lights blue, as well as getting a ProDrive gauge cluster (which I'll change the lights to blue in also). The 60mm Defi's will be going in an ATI dash pod & the 52mm gauges in an SMY cluster pod.

Should be sick when I'm done.

That'd be a perfect spot for a nitrous gauge. If you had small bottles under the seat like Toretto. Haha. And a egt gauge

I'm doing the same thing just need the boost gauge now. Is it just me or are the yellow aems a tad different yellow and the reds a little off? anyone with this setup chime in?

Why doesnt aem make a gauge that matches perfect with their wideband and their truboost has the aem logo near the top of the gauge instead of low like the wideband, why??!?

Yes/No? Yes it's hardwired to a fuse tap that comes on with the ignition. No, it is not hardwired to constant on--though it can be and use accelerometer data to wake up and start recording.

How does it compare to contour or gopro in terms of video?

Jcs pods do tend to bubble. Use a sub shade in the summer. Great pod but the paint will bubble. I'll text you pics if you like.

Do you look at the road while driving or do you just constantly check your gauges lol

I think it's just the glare that make them look different. And the boost gauge seems to have a slightly more sensitive light sensor so it'll dim more than the wideband during the day
