    Gauge pod . . .

    morning all. i was rummagine around in the scrap yards on sat mornig, i manage to get hold af a set of internal silver door handles so there goin on this week, i also go hold of a drivers A-pillar trim piece to replace mine. the previous owned took a big gash out of it some how.

    Anyway. as i've got this A-pillar trim sat at home (one with the gash in it) and i've got a thing for fibre glass at the moment, i was thinking of making a custom gauge pod !

    i was thinking mabey 2 of three gauges as i think they look trick as **** at night.

    i have a 1.4 i 16v g on an s plate (x14xe i think )

    anyone suggest any gauges that i could get to work on the beast ??

    i'e oil pressure, vaccum etc, and anyone know where i would take the sensor feeds from etc.

    cheers guys.

    wiggy.

    Oil pressure is normaly. No need for Vacuum as your engine will always run in that form. Got water temp so thats not needed. Got revs so thats not needed.

    Not sure what else you would want. Sorry.

    A vacuum gauge will just tell you the amount of vacuum. This will change with revs. Will not go past 0 as you can't get into positive boost without a turbo.
