Show us your gauges

Show us your gauges

Postby har05l on Thu Aug 14, 2014 1:20 am

I've just spent the last hour looking through multiple threads and couldn't find a designated gauges thread so for those that have them please give us a look ;)

There seems to be a "show us your" everything else :?

If this has been covered then please point me in the right direction :)

I too am keen to see some gauge porn,

Although I bought the double gauge pod back when the GB was happening I have not yet installed it or purchased gauges to fill her, perhaps this thread will inspire me

Pretty sure there were a few gauge pics after the pillar pod group buy. I thought it might even have had its own thread.

Yeah mate not being critical I was thinking out loud on the phone in a lift. Maybe we could lift some of the images though and copy them in here so we have more gauge porn?

I have one gauge at present which is a VDO auto temp gauge with red backlight from wholesale autos. I bought a pillar pod in the group buy and recently returned it for the newer MN model but have heard nothing more from them. Assuming it ever comes back I am a bit stuck for what my second gauge should be so this thread could prove just the prompt I need to get off my rear end.

Anyone know the ID size of the OEM boost hose to the MAP sensor?

Engine guages

Postby Mayhem2015 on Sun Feb 14, 2016 12:11 am

A few blokes getting onboard so thought I would start a thread.

I just got an EDS brand engine gauge. Not sure where to mount it so keen to see where other people have theirs mounted. I have a couple of ideas but want to sort all the brain silt out before I install it. If other people have it in and have it in a place that works that will be a big help and I will no longer be guessing.

Would love to see your pics. Keen to get my unit in.

I've got racetech boost & EGT fairly happy do the job.

I am however instigating if these http://www.aeroforcetech.com/products_order_mitsubishi.html will work with the MN OBD2. Had them in my SS and are an excellent digital gauge, up to 4 parameters at a time with dual gauges and programmable warning lights and sounds, recall and record. On the pricey side but can vouch worth the money.

Has anyone done anything like this?

I borrowed the image from Facebook a while back. If memory serves the guy paid to have it made in qld somewhere.

I'm looking for alternatives to a pillar mount for a two or 3 gauge setup.

Something like that could work. Ideally though I was thinking it should be angled to the right. Most of the options I found were either straight or angled left for lhd.

yeah supercheap sell clip in versions for both the commodore and the falcon. I reckon i could graft them on if I put my mind to it. But I also think I can put them up where the RV meter was before, enclosed within the housing maybe?

Has anyone used the Autotecnica digital gauges before?
I was contemplating getting these because they're similar to the Redarc where they cater for multiple systems all within the one gauge however they're significantly cheaper in price. I was considering the dual EGT/BOOST and then the Water Temp/Oil Pressure.
The third gauge could then become the Automatic Transmission Temperature.

Yeah, I fitted the EGT/boost gauge to a mate's Cruiser. He is very happy with it.
