    Question Boost guage-mounting ideas

    I was thinking about getting a boost gauge so that i can monitor the boost. Also i think it looks pretty cool.
    However i dont know where to fit one

    I was thinking maybe in the drivers side window heater vent. Not the moving one but the fixed one. Has anyone done this and can tell me what i would need etc?..

    Or are there any other ideas for a good place to fit one.

    Finally where can i get a good guage and fitting kit that wont cost the earth!.

    Thanks

    In 1 of the Din slots on the centre console.

    I reccomend this gauge and this gauge holder.

    I want one aswell and have the same problem about mounting it.
    Something like this would be good if i can find it for the astra
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
    Then again............
