Very nice...

*edit... Works for me now.

Looks nice. I like the gauges in the vent, I'm working on a piece to do that also.

No LSD stock yet, expecting more soon...

the pipe was chromed for $90 and the customer did it. Looks great...

The SVR battery is in pretty snug, it is on its side. the s14 models will take the batery streight with no turning it. Great little battery, we use them on all the swaps with front mounts now.

thanks for checking it out http://www.freshalloy.com/

We block off the air from teh vents witha shield, so no hot or cold air is directed at the gauges. You do get more air out of the other vents, thats all.

The autometer gauges, well they might be cheaper then others, but we had no problems with them so far.

I think they are more then fine for a street car.

TroyC http://www.freshalloy.com/ <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]Every single Autometer gauge I, or my friends, have used has gone awry. Example, the boost gauge reads vacuum or boost when the car is off. I wouldn't trust my motor to that pos. Spend the extra $50 and get a GReddy, its only $105. Not $200.

Is that a Greddy R-Spec or V-spec intercooler on Mike's car?

Clean setup..... Anyone got pics of a stealth setup of the gaugues for people in Cali that needs to escape cops that are looking into their cars to determine if they need to pop the hood or not?

We are so busy I never get a chance to work on my own car, and since it was our first install even though it runs great the wiring and engine bay are a bit of a mess. Now we get the harnesses to look great, practice makes perfect.

Thanks for the compliments!

if boost is being read when the car is off, maybe its just reading atmospheric pressure? or maybe its like the guages on my fiero, when you shut the car off the speedo reads like 20, and 2k rpm. when you turn it on it adjusts itself

Hey Yury where/how did you guys get that gauge pod for the air vents??

I like the gauges in the vent <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]A question on this; for this mod do ppl simply mount something *over* the vent? If so, what happens to the (potentially) hot air hitting the back of whatever is mounted there? Or is the piping for the vent cut off as well?

Since all Autometer boost gauges are mechanical, it should read the correct pressure whether the engine is on or off.

I have heard stories about shoddy quality control at Autometer (would you be surprised, considering their sales volume?). Like, if you look at a bunch of boost gauges on display, they'll all read different things (even though they should all read "0").
