a set of boost, fuel pressure, oil pressure defi gauges are on the way. they are 52mm looking to get a dash pod for them i am thinking about getting the auto meter one. its alittle cheaper than the defi one. my question is does anyone have it what do they think about it. also 52mm is the same as 2 1/16 correct. thanks in advanced.
I have the Autometer dash pod.
Its good..... and it's good quality.
However, the lack of a "hood" over the top of your gauges will cause a significant reflection in the center of your windshield at night.
I've gotten used to it over the years... but it was VERY distracting at first.
If someone were to trade me a hooded dash pod for my Autometer non-hooded dash pod..... I would accept.
This is a terrible, blurry picture of the interior of my car.... but if you look at the very top of the picture, you can see the "reflection" I'm talking about.
Again.... the pod is smaller, and more discreet than the massive hooded pods.... but you have to deal with the reflection at night.

Get a "hooded" clock pod. As ninefourteener pointed out, the glare on the windshield sucks at night. Also, the hood helps keep the sun reflection on the gauges down, making them easier to see during the day.
I have an ATI pod in my car, and sitting in the driver seat, I see my hood scoop over the pod. It's not as obtrusive as you may think.
Here's the view of mine from the drivers seat:Originally Posted by irvin787878
I have no visibility issues unless the sun is coming through my back window.

You have two options:Originally Posted by irvin787878
1) Galley plug. I tapped my oil temp gauge into the galley plug under the TMIC. It's on the engine block near the turbo. I believe it's an 8mm hex socket.
2) Sandwich adapter. This goes between the block and the oil filter.

I don't recall using teflon tape on mine, ever. Reasons: threads are tapered and shouldn't need it. #2: the sensors need grounding, and do so through the threads. Teflon tape can hinder this.
