well, i don't know of ANY other who makes triple gauge pods for our celica so what i did, was use the autometer dual gauge pod, then bought another gauge pod to mount to my dash somewhere I have three AC Autotechnic gauges, so i bought AC Autotechnic's new aluminum gauge pods just find something you like
one more question here. When I connect the gauges to the battery ive seen them on some cars but forget what there called where it hooks everything up to the negative or postive side of the battery on the terminal and makes it look more organized instead of all the wires just put on the negative or positive, anyone know what im talking about? They also use them when connecting a system to the battery to make it look nice...Thanks
I already have a gauge pod im going to order... talking about where everything hooks up to the battery and it makes it look organize and clean instead of ugly wires on the battery, anyone know what im talking about?

no not the battery terminal its like a clip or something ive seen it before on show cars/cars with systems and gauges and neons and it hooks to the battery so you can wire everything up to it and it bolts onto your terminal!Err i cant find it anywhere now
Wait! I purchased one from Gaugepods.com and the fitment isn't bad. I didn't have any problem with the corners like Billy. My problem is that it's a bit bulkier in the center but nothing that I can't live with, doesn't look that bad. I'll try to post some pics later...
don't connect to the battery there's no need to, it just gives you more hassle to run wires through the firewall and have them all over your engine bay...
there are a shitload of wires to tap into under your drivers side dash, that's where i did mine. it's very simple. half the time, you may have a connector not connected to anything that is very useful with gauges
You could run the voltmeter to another constant 12volt source in the car but you won't get a true reading. You're getting the voltage reading after it passes through the multiple things that the battery supplies power to. So it is best to go right to the battery for that one gauge. After all the voltage reading you want is the actual battery voltage, right?

so how much should the battery say? mine says 14 when i drive and stays consistant at 13 point something, that's what you usually get from the battery. not to say you're wrong, but you can do EITHER one, it's still going to read it either way and you'll know if you're not getting the right amount of power to the eletrical stuff.
