    Mr Postman delivered my present to myself today so I set about fitting it.

    Wired up the lamp in it so it illuminates at the same time as the clocks. It lit up yellow which I didn't like so painted the bulb red and now fits in better.

    I need to get a piece of trim to go around the gauge itself and fill in the gap around the side, but otherwise quite happy with it. Only a cheapy gauge but looks areet!

    Now, what 'should' a remapped AGU with decat and induction kit boost at? Is 16/17psi normal? Also vacuum is -25 on idle.

    You can get a replacement vent for that if it is the same size as Westles... Look on Westles build thread and you will see it mate... I don't know how to post the link

    16-17psi sounds perfect for a mapped AGU with a decat :)

    Always handy to have a guage, very handy for instantly spotting a problem, but it also makes you paranoid, as if you find yourself 1-2psi down on boost, you feel compelled to go hunting for the cause!

    I saw those housings but that means parting with more money. I have a sheet of carbon fibre I will use as a surround tomorrow :)

    The gauge was an eBay jobbie for about £40. I went for that one because it matched the interior and standard dials quite well.

    Had some carbon fibre going spare so made a wee surround for the gauge. Looks far better i think! [​IMG]

    Nice work, that looks much better than being wedged between the fins on the vent ;)

    My mate is about to buy a big sheet of carbon fibre to do his M3 boot floor and footwells. I might pinch what he has left to do a plate for a double DIN to single DIN headunit conversion ;)
