Default Aeroforce Scangauge Mounting Option (96-99)

Just wanted to share my mounting option for the 96-99 crowd for the Aeroforce Interceptor Scan Gauge. I wasn't ready to permanently mount it in a pillar pod or in the dash. Some may not like it and it is not ideal as far as "line-of-sight" out of the windsheild goes, but I also had another reason in mind to not permanently mount it yet......and that was to make it easily moveable and mountable to allow me to easily share it with my local Bonneville (and GP) friends.

For my purposes and easy movablilty, I think it turned out fine.

Gauge cup is from Autometer, part #2204 I found at my local Pep-boys for $19.99. I also bought an "Add-A-Circuit" wire that can simply plug into the drivers side fuse panel to further allow easy sharing of the guage with others. Both the OBDII connector and power wire simply feed through the steering column opening in the lower dash panel. It will take only a few moments to swap the guage from car to car. I haven't run that power wire, just yet, because interestingly enough, I have discovered that the gauge will power up and is fully operational without connecting to another 12V power souce by simply unplugging and replugging in the connector at the OBDII port upon each start-up. Definitely not ideal, though, and I will be running the power wire soon, but I thought others should know that the gauge can be used without installing a permanent wire if you are willing to unplug and replug whenever you wanted to see some readings.

Currently using a band clamp, but other, more gentle, options are in the works and will be being tested.

Ricer/ghetto? I suppose so, but I was thinking more of "old school" muscle car

Pipes? What pipes? Just ignore that picture. I haven't done anything (other than the 3.5 MPS) to warrant them. But if I were to do something in the future, I guess I would be one that would think it could be a good idea to have them on first, before any other serious mods.....maybe :P
