Mounted gauges in dash of RX (pictures DUW)
Posted 06 July 2004 - 02:40 PM
Took the dash out of the turbo wagon and checked the depth against the Autometer Boost and A/F gauges, looked to be enough room. With a lot of help from my trusty Dremel and 3 tries, got them to fit. Had to reroute all the wires and the pressure line.
Going to rewire the rear defrost switch into one of the blanks lower on the same side.
Guess this is a good of a reason as any to clean the inside of the car. That's next.
Much easier to see while driving. Don't like the reflection from the sun and haven't driven the car at night. I'm hoping the A/F gauge flickering LEDs aren't going to be a distraction, We'll see.

P.S. How much boost are you running and what does your A/F read when you're on boost?

Didn't quite get the top gauge centered in the surround like I wanted, but after the third try with the plastic I said "Good Enough!" and put it all back together.
All Talk: Running factory boost until I get my FMIC hooked up. When I am in the boost the gauge registers on the rich side. Can't recall the range of the gauge ottomh.
Archemitis: what car were you running the gauges? Got a picture? I think the older EA82 cars would be easier to mount gauges in this spot.
One more picture.
