    remove or move turbo gauge

    Is there an easy and/or safe way to either move or remote the turbo gauge? I don't like the spot that it's in and it obscures the temperature gauge. Optionally, could the gauge be easily replaced with a different style ( or shape) of gauge?
    just out of curiosity, how many people actually look or use that turbo gauge? it's interesting to look at it once in a great while, but i could do w/o it.

    I had the same opinions about mine but after I noticed some loss in power I immediately looked down to see that I wasn't boosting as much as usual...still haven't exactly figured out what is causing it but at least I know what its something to to do with boosting.

    Let me guess it is mounted on your steering column on the left side over the turn signal lever? Is it the factory model?

    I didnt like the location of mine so i went ahead and got a 2 gage A-Pillar pod. Very easy removal and install (if you are somewhat technically inclined with wiring). Pop a couple panels, run your wires and solder/crimp.

    To me, and as im sure all other suby owners will tell you, having a boost gage is a very useful troubleshooting tool!
