hey guys, i was searching for a gauge pod, and i came accross this link:

http://my.is/forums/showthread.php?t=225763&highlight=Turboeast+gauge+pod

and, i wanted to know, is there really a gauge pod that replaces the full AC piece? i like the turboeast one, but, i'm not a fan of the rivits, and the overall look...but, i can't see the pic cause he probably deleted it from his photo link. anyway, if there really is a turboeast style gauge pod that comes all the way down to the vents, post some pics. also, where can i get one?

TRD
TE

But none I have seen fully replace it all they just fit into the lint tray area

Turnip has a unique one ...

I will have TRD copies when I get to Seattle ;)

if no one makes this...how much would it be to get one made?
And no one makes it (custom job there)

All he did was mold in the pods with fiberglass (bondo) and sanded and painted

All depends on the shop and their hourly charge

that pod is nice and all but the functionality of it is horrible, only two gauges, and you have to take the entire dash vent off to get to it...or under it i should say...and at a shop that would be $$$...if you arent good with fiberglass/bondo/fabrication or any type of body work making something custom is pretty much out of the picture...im not saying you cant and im not trying to be a dick...im just saying theres more work in that little pod than you know. So the most cost effective way would to be buy one already on the market, or wait for imprimis to finish his batch

that gauge pod is beutiful. only downfall is it only hold 2 gauges. i love how its molded with the rest of the dash and ac vent. triple gauge pod like that would be PERFECT. i love how the gauges are recesed and angled and the pod doesnt look like some plastic add on piece

yeah but to wire them up have to remove the whole tray, a little more work but it could be a rush issue with people
