As an update. I got the bezel and gauges in. The bezel is very poorly made but it is nice to have all your gauges right with the rest of your instrumentation. Personally, had I known the quality of this piece first hand before I ordered it I wouldnt have. The autometer bezel is very poorly cut.

Is there a gauge pod that replaces the clock that will fit 52 mm or 2 1/16" gauges rather than the 60 mm. I want the autometer cobalt series and I hear the instrument cluster bezzel is very poorly made. Also does the Autometer cobalt series have a 52 mm A/F with a wideband O2 sensor? Also where can I buy the overhead clock? Thanks

They light up Red, which is very cool. Looks like three red eyes staring at me in the dark. I love it.

These are the defi gauges on the a pillar. I find these are in the perfect position for viewing while driveing and are not that distracting whe you don't really care what they are doing. plus the come with a warning light. Another benefical fact is that they match the 04 gauges perfectly.

and this is the controller that comes with the gauges that allows you to rocord, set a warning light, and get your peak. Along with other various things. The only problem with these gauges is that they are a lil pricey.

i agree that the a-pillar is racy and is too far off the line on sight for real world driving . The clock position is perfect.. For those who would be lost with out the clock, here is a Idea. You know me, full of ideas and ?'s.... You can go to autozone and buy a part that does clock/outside temp and inside temp for less than $20 bucks... Comes with a temp sensor that you can run to the front bumber.Its nice to know the inside and exspecially outside temp for map selection on the utec... I have noticed at night with low outside temps the car runs waaayyyy better. The install is like of a APEXi turbo timer... use double sided tape, put next to above radio cup holder to left... look at pic... People be like.." what's that..." not knowing and $hit.... ohh welll.... just a cheap mod for all
I took the pic late night using my photo cell phone drunk at 1 in the morning, sorry about the poor quality...

Where did you find the 60mm dual a pillar??? All I could find were for 52mm gauges

It is a 52mm. It has to be modified with a dremel.
