I would recommend the derres catalano gauge mask with modified OEM pod. It looks very smooth, not too overpowering, and fits 52mm pods.

avatar did you install those pods yourself or did someone do them for you? If you installed them how hard was it? Do you think you could help me out in installing mine when i get them? Also what is that one in the middle EGT?

i did install it myself. very simple. i wouldn't mind at all helping you. and yes, the one in the middle is the EGT AKA pyrometer.

they are the sport comp series IIRC. the boost gauge is mechanical. the a/f and egt are both electronic but all a/f and egt gauges are electronic.

The problems you've heard about are with the sensor, which is pretty long and prone to breaking apart and doing damage to your engine's vitals. I believe there are replacement probes which are shorter though.

If i was to get three gauges which ones do you think I should get? I was thinking A/F Ratio, EGT, and Fuel Temp. I dont need a boost gauge because I'm getting a dual turbo timer. Or do you still think I need one?

This topic has been covered 10 fold. But out of the kindness of my heart, I'll tell you my Opinion of which three gauges you should get:

EGT, Boost, Oil Pressure/ or Temp.

No real need for A/F gauge, unless you plan on buying a Wide Band O2 sensor, then it's a good purchase (otherwise it's just a purty light display that won't tell you jack). Fuel Temp is basically useless unless you're SUPER MODIFIED.

I personally feel a Good Boost gauge is necessary, regardless of whether you are getting a dual turbo timer... that way, you have two points of reference. Also, who's to say that dual turbo timer is completely accurate?

Oil Pressure or Temp is very important because Oil is the life blood of your vehicle.

And we all know why an EGT gauge is so important.

i would say oil pressure is more important than oil temp should you have to decide between the two. this is quite common since the majority of the pods that go where the clock is right now hold 3 gauges. boost and egt are pretty much givens. then you have to decide on one more. :shrug:
