    Potential product feeler!!! (Gauge related stuff)

    I'm discussing things with an injection molding company and PPMotorsports to offer gauge solutions in case you don't like what's out there and/or you find things too expensive.

    Basically 2 things:
    1. An OEM style gauge pod for 52mm gauges (where the OEM one is 45mm, and suck with Omori only)
    2. a Single Din gauge pod (when you install a single din HU)

    An affordable set gauge would include VDO vision series gauges, such as their Mechanical Boost/Vacuum, Electrical Oil/Water Temp, Electrical Oil/Water pressure, Voltmeter, & EGT

    As I mentioned earlier:

    A gauge pod like the OEM one and/or when you install a single din headunit, it will occupy the empty hole you just created

    That looks way clean. I dunno about buying a new head unit just to put in some gauges, but the pod in the clock location I'd go for.

    That gauge pod is Sexy. The only problem is glancing quickly at the gauges and back up at the road might be difficult. But- id hit it if i didnt have my defi pod/defis
