    Where did you locate your boost gauge?

    i would like to know and see (pictures) on where did you install your boost pressure gauge.
    If anyone have a picture of his own plz point it to me. I have an Innovate blue led AFR and another gauge branded autogauge for the boost. I would like to install the boost one, maybe the AFR one later on but i dont really find a smart place for it.

    will any pillar pod fits or is there a dimension i need to look for.
    My boost gauge is an autogauge one, exactly the same that tuffty have in the first picture.
    there is some other pods that fix the gauge in the center of the plastic steering column...but i think it wont be good since i wont be able to see the middle part of my dashboard

    its not a 100% perfect fit as the pods are out of my scooby. its hardly noticable till you really look. they were only supposed to be a temp fixture if im honest just never got round to replacing. Cars being stripped now so they served there dutys

    Boosting 17-18psi max but settling at 15 psi. How does that sound mate?

    this is where i did have mine, just a quick DIY install


    this is what i got now, its just a 5 gauge pod off ebay, i bolted it to the demister vent (round vent on the dash), means i can take it out without needing to replacing anything when i sell the car. (bad picture, i will try to get a better soon up)
