    c'mon, show me.........

    where your turbo timers are at within your dash. also your additional gauges and dials are.

    i love looking at things like this as it always fuels my mind with ideas etc.

    i plan to locate a turbo timer within the ashtray and have 3 gauges consisting of boost, volts and...............something else, what would you reccommend? (standard LET)

    SO c'mon, lets see em!

    Mines tucked away in the footwell just behind the centre console as you dont need to touch it once set.

    Depends what one you get.

    My one would fit in the pull down flap easy.

    This is the one I have and is only 7 cm x 5.5 cm x 2.5 cm : http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Universal-Turb...QQcmdZViewItem

    i have mine hidden in the dash m8.. TBH once you set it thats it. u dont ever touch it again.

    Remove your TC pannel and then ashtray. yoll see there is millions of space down there for all sorts of wires. i just stuck mine to the side of the consol with tape.

    If you ever need to get at it then all you do is take ashtray out and there you go.

    will take a picture for you when i am changing my dash over next week if you want.
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!

    Really easy.

    The 3 (I think) wires are soldered at the ignition switch and 1 wire to the handbreak wire.
