    I wish I could, but I have some bills. I'm starting to save up for them, but who knows when it will happen.
    I alrady ordered mine They should be here next week. Which guages did you order? I got a boost gauge and an EGT gauge, both 60mm.

    I didn't order anything yet. I'll probably be getting them from and installed by Dan. But I'm in the process of saving up. I plan on boost, EGT, and oil temp.

    Weird question, but what 'order' do you plan on putting them in? I'm thinking boost would be best on the bottom cause it would be easier to glance at. *shrug*

    I'm not sure. I'll have two pods on my a-pillar...I picture the boost gauge being on top and the EGT on the bottom. I'll be able to better asses which goes where once I have them infront of me. I'll let you know what I decide on

    I've heard that it is better to put the boost on the bottom, as close to the same plane as your other gauges (speedo, tach, etc) as possible, so that you dont have to re-focus as much on the boost gauge each time you look at it. Just a suggestion.

    i dont know if you guys want to consider this, but when i had my triple a-pillar, i found that the gauges were very difficult to look at under pressure. My boost gauge was on the very top and it was so difficult, i got in the habbit of NOT looking at it. I hope my defi center pod is better.

    Real nice gauge Biaxin...very classy, but i agree with verbal, its a shame they are not in Imperial (PSI). I'm in Australia and we're a metric country but i got my Defi's from the U.S. cause i can't relate to Bar. Defi-Link Meter boost gauge 60mm is made specifically for the U.S and is in PSI.
    Thanks.

    I just ordered and installed the BLM boost guage on my a-pillar how ever the guage's blacklight wont turn on for some reason, I tested all the wiring and I have power coming into the guage however Im not getting anything coming out throught the ground...... Is there something Im not installing right, or do you guys think the guage just isnt working properly?

    Gotcha...hmmm...I'm no electronics expert, but all I know is that the orange wire that came with my EGT and Oil Temp gauges wasn't needed.

    Do you think they could have reversed the wires?

    It's possible. The instructions I got said to hook up the orange wire, but whenever we did, it didn't work. Ivan finally called Blitz themselves to ***** and they said "oh yeah you really aren't supposed to hook that orange wire up."
