Gauge Size Help
I am getting ready for my turbo kit which should be here in about a month and i was planning on installing my boost gauge in the Air Vent right beside the Clock and Center Console and Probably my Oil Temp in the Vent to the Left of the Steering wheel and then just using a 2 gauge Pod on the piller for my Air/Fuel and GUS.

The Question is i am ordering 2-1/16" Gauges for the Pillar Pod but i am unser of what size i should get for the the ones i plan on putting in the Vents. Anyone Done this and if so can you let me know what size you used and if you have any pics it would be greatly appreciated.

I tried to search but this search feature hates me on this site

i think it's 60 mm for the vents you should get a pod though to house the third gauge

Here you go Jamey...here is what it looks like with gauges in the vents.

Finally, I get to help you for once. Since you have helped me with car show tips about a million times.

I couldn't put gauges in my vents because I get hot way too easy. Our cars AC doesn't work that well as it is. Good place to view gauges though. Maybe the air would just be redirected to the other vents and make a difference.

Anyway, here is the famous Red Dragon http://www.superstreetonline.com/featuredvehicles/61418/

its not really too dificult... just cut out your air vent flaps, and replace with gauge... wires are pushed through a hole you make in the underside the plastic air ducts

This will give you an idea of the outcome if using the smaller 2-1/16 gauges for the air vents...
