    Window defroster

    Hey IS2SCOOBY does that setup block the defroster from the driver side window? Props on the setup.

    Thanks for the props. :-)

    I'm not sure regarding the defroster, I live in Hawaii. Have never even turned on the defroster. I don't suppose that it would completely block the defroster.

    If anything the boost gauge would get hot and read high.

    The wires are routed through some wiring loom out of the back of the gauge cup into a hole I drilled into the a-pillar.

    Thanks for the compliments! It's simple, low-buck, and clean. The way I like my mods!

    How did you mount the support tube that's coming out of the vent? Did that come with the cup? How long did the install take? I already have the VDO gauge, just deciing where to put it. BTW how well does the lighting match at night?

    Hehehe. The "support tube" is a piece of 3/8" Semi-Rigid Vacuum line from an autoparts store cleverly cut to exacting tolerances to dampen excessive cup oscillation.

    It's just propped in there between the cup and the vent. Works great, everybody thinks it's part of the cup and it cost like $0.12

    The lighting matches EXACTLY. I'm *VERY* happy with my low-buck gauge.

    The VDO cup is a bit of an unfriendly sort so it took me about 2 hours total to get everything going...

    If you don't already have a turbo timer you might want to get the Blitz Dual TT and mount it next to the cup holder. This Turbo timer also displays boost with peak hold. I like this because the color matches and you get two functions with one device!
    This TT is relatively cheap (I think less than 200). I love mine.

    I'd recommend the Omori boost gauge - it's in lbs, and matches the factory gauges with a yellow needle and green backlight.

    It can be installed in the factory rubber column pod housing...

    I got mine from here...
