I really wouldn't run the Mech oil gauge in the cabin if you don't have some aftermarket oiler/pressurizer etc, unless it'* a race only car (which i doubt it is, if you're asking this question).

You make the gauge pod yourself. You can get the universal pod to attach to your pillar trim from some auto parts stores.

You won't get that gauge wire through the firewall without drilling a hole. Why are you using an aftermarket gauge instead of the one you already have?

How do you go about moving the boost gauge to a diff. location, or hooking up something in its place. I want it to be down by my shift ****?
