    Vent gauge pod

    Saw a neat new product at WBM a few weeks ago. It was a gauge pod that replaced the air vent on the drivers side. Anybody seen this or know if its available? It had a pretty stock look and i think they said it would work in some legacys, foresters and the gr.

    Why would you sacrifice your vent when there are so many cluster, A-pillar, and clock gauge pods from which to choose?

    Cause it didn't sacrifice the vent and it looked super clean. It had space around the gauge that looks like the other vents.

    I actually like my gauges up near the regular stock cluster because I don't have to look down away from the road while I am driving.

    This ^^^^

    Those gauges look good, but mounted that low would not work for me.

    If you meant the driver's vent in between the console and the door, I'd be curious to see how they could still use the vent as a 52mm gauge is a near-perfect fit in that hole.

    Nastysock has a thread with several DIYs on how to mount a gauge in this spot, but you will sacrifice the vent.

    I'd recommend the SMY cluster, though. OEM fit and finish, and it puts the gauges right right in line with dash cluster, without blocking it.

    Looks like SMY has been busy. They have a full Subaru parts site now, and offer their gauge cluster wrapped in leather and suede. Fancy schmancy.

    i actually really like how that looks. would be kind of hard to keep looking down to, but since its not a boost gauge or wideband mounted there it get used less

    No this was on the left side. I think the company name was solid? It made it so with for instance with a cluster maker you could have three gauges without needing a ridiculous pillar mount.
