    Autometer dual A pillar and grounding kit installed tonight

    the Autometer dual A pillar gauge replaces the OEM guage. It fits perfectly!!

    the autometer boost gauge was amazingly easy to install. I took the windshield liquid resivour out to get the boost line out.
    It reads instantaneously too so that's great!

    here are my readings (cool 70 degree night)
    intail start up: -10 vacuum
    1st gear: max PSI at 13 or so
    2nd gear: max PSI at 15
    no acceleration in gear: -15 vacuum

    does that sound right to you guys?

    oh I also got that light show Air fuel ratio gauge. I didn't know what to tap so it just sits there reading "RICH". any help here??!

    the grounding kit I got for 10 bucks and I really dont notice it doing anything for the car

    alright found my answer to the airfuel ratio question:

    just tap B17 per this diagram

    to get to the ecu use Cobb's instructions:

    hmm boost guage fix?
    mine goes:
    vacuum hose then the 3/8 inch hard hose then the gauge. My guage moves as fast as his movie so I think i'm good there. thanks for the tip though!!

    Is it worth running a A/F guage off of the stock pins and not using a wideband O2 sensor?

    Explain.

    no the airfuel is not worth it, it is only a 1volt reading so it fluctuates so much it is pretty worthless, but I didn't have anythign else to put on there

    damn it I think the back of my boost gauge is leaking.

    I hear a whooosh sound behind the boost gauge when I'm at max psi. I seem to keep it at 15psi till 6k rpms, but that whoosh sound is weird.

    My connection is BOV tube -> 1/4x1/4x1/8 connectore -> 1/8 vacuum tube -> some small hard wire -> boost gauge. I'm gonna try tightening the back of the boost gauge tommorrow.

    Add a hose clamp to that equation and youll be all set!

    For the Dual A-pillar pod, what did you use to close the gap between the pod and the window? I have a good space between the two and it looks really ghetto!

    3M double sided foam tape should help you out.

    Do you have a part number, store name, or know the width and thickness?

    Its usually found in the paint/trim section of any parts store.

    Cool. I was just wondering because the gap is HUGE. There is only one metal braket that I could put regular double sided tape but that is exactly what pulls it away from the glass. I will try putting the double sided foam tape on the glass side/underside of pod and then will just look for something to put on the outside of the pod and part of the glass to give it a sealed look.
