    a pillar woes

    I ordered a dual 60 mm pod from Lotek and I have been wrestling to fit in my 60mm greddy gauges for an hour.

    Is the pod really supposed to fit in this tightly!? I even tried to open the holes a bit with some improvised hack saw action, but worked to no avail. Did anyone have this hard of a time fitting in their gauges into their pods like me?

    any tips or tricks?

    maybe.. if they are not fitting at all...
    try dremeling out the diameter of the hole a bit?

    or... contact the place you bought them from and go over your issues with them?

    maybe they send you a 52mm pod instead??

    good luck to ya

    I've been wondering how 60mm gauges would look in the a pillar. I've seen 52mm but not 60mm. Post pics when you get the problems worked out. Good luck!

    I think the Lotek pod has had a lot of fitment issues in the past, taht is why I decided to go with the slighly mroe expensive Autometer piece.

    I used autometers gauge pod simply because lotek's pod had fitment issues. It will look nice if you get those gauges in.

    I don't know about the 60 mm. But i love my 52 mm dual pod from lotek. The gauge fit great and the quality was pretty good.
