Well, after waiting for many weeks it has finally been installed. Here is one of the pics:



As you can see, I mounted it in the JDM dash tray so that it can be hidden when not in use. It is mounted using a hinge which allows the meter to fold up and down. No cutting of the tray nor dash was required to route the wires. All I did was drill 3 small holes to attach the hinge securely.
The G sensor is located underneath, which just happens to be a perfectly flat surface.

This same setup can probably be used with other meters (SAFC) too

Installation was more difficult than expected because the ECU is in the engine bay (rather than in a kick panel) and further from the firewall, and so the wiring loom had to be extended. So be aware that it will not be a 1hr job (which is what i originally thought) if you are going to an autoelectrician

Settings used:
40P
Tire 115%
Weight 1950+drivers weight+70+20(extra)

Overall, looks brilliant, especially at night. Lots of useful info, and very fun to use.

More pics of the hinge, etc in my sig

Thanks to all those who answered my questions through PM
You know who you are :lol: :D

PS: Not sure if this should be in GF or Mobiletronics. Move as desired mods, ta

Your car weighs 1200 pounds less than stock? How'd you pull that off? :crazy:

Why did you set your tire size to 115%? The tire/wheel combo is stock, no?

Yeah they are stock, but for some reason the speed is a little out when 100% is used. So I just adjusted it until it matched the speedo
