    Cheap Android phone, + Torque App + Bluetooth ODB2 dongle will get you up and running in 5 mins.
    Place the phone were it looks good, or there's a feature to show the display as heads up (HUD) in windscreen.

    Only wiring involved is power to the phone..simples!! close1_small.jpg

    Your best just adapting a vent or getting one from a scrapyard ref the vent,boost gauges arent cheap and you really do get what you pay for ,the defi ones are amazing bits of kit but i think you need the link module to run it which is expensive,turbo smart do some good ones which do alsorts but they are also big money

    would you be interested in putting it above the steering column or so.. right near the dash cluster? seems like a reasonable place if im honest.

    The picture i posted above is in the vent and uses the OSIR vent mount....... This can obviously be put in any vent you like.

    Not sure what else you want!?
