It'* called the A pillar, ya, you can clip it on there, but it will look funny. If you want it to look good you will need to cut it to fit flush and then do some fiberglass work.

I want a guage pod, but I don't know what gauge'* I'd put in there. The car has a boost gauge already, so maybe a Fuel/air and a volt? Even though the DIC shows volts.

The dash gauges aren't very accurate. If you get a AFR make sure it'* a wideband.

I got an auto meter boost/vac gauge and it is AMAZING how far off the factory boost gauge is. At WOT the dash boost gauge says 8 lbs and the auto meter says 11 lbs. At idle, the dash gauge says around 8 inches of vacuum and the auto meter says 17 inches of vacuum
