Post up your gauges!
why the sideways?
Here are the gauges in the St165:
Here are the gauges in the ST162:
love the side gauges , i might get some for mine soon , tho mine will be on the right hand side :O
not yet finished but ill post what i got... prosport white/amber gauges: water temp, (oil temp, oil pressure should be here this week from twosrus).
-switch is for water injection
-led shows when the WI sprays
- i might put more gauges where the center vents are but im on the fence about that... i do have the a-pillar 3 gauge pod but personally i dont like the look of it... too many ricers rolling around with that look... plus i like to keep it as sleeper as i can...
dont mind the radio, i barely use it... i dont even really know why i have it b/c you can barely hear it over the open midpipe exhaust (only alpine type s speakers in the front, no rears)...
cool didnt know u cud fit it where the ash tray was lol!
i'm really tall so i have to turn my gauges. i cannot see the top of them. so the vacuum stuff i don't much care about anf the egt being below 600 degrees i don't much care about.
hey mafix you're right about the visibility... the prosports are kinda skewed when viewed from that much of an angle (it almost has a concave type lens) so i have to bend down to see exactly where the needle is pointing... so thats really annoying...
im was going to move the three gauges to the center vents where csnyder has them but im thinking of just doing the 3 pods on the dash...
ok so i finaly brought some , to be honest i cudnt resist haha !!
come with , tach - i know how to install
water temp- is it that same wiring as the temp gauge on the dash ??
and oil pressure i guess thats the same as the oil pressure on the dash
i know your thinking wtf why have double ups well i duno i just think it would be cool having side ones.
those look pretty nice, what brand are they?
there just called auto gauge lol ! , doesnt matter to much i just like things that light up , they light up blue ,
Well...Id thought I throw this back out there since I havent been around in awhile. This custom cluster took me a bit of work to do but was worth it.
I never ever get tired od seeing that pic, I have a spare cluster, in which I am hoping to do a few trick things, yours is the inspiration!!
Thanks! I only wish I would have took pictures of the build process. Just an FYI I didnt use anything from the old cluster. I had to custom make a spedo cable. I also chopped off the factory harness plugs and wired on new ones. All the gauges are mounted on a aluminum panel, some of the idiot lights are connected with leds along with the the turn sigs. I need to install one more gauge in the lower left of the panel, when I do Ill take some pictures of the backside of it.
I will prob stay with the existing speed, tacho, fuel and oil pressure gauges, but I want to custom mount into the boost gauge and the water temp gauges, digital displays.
The boost gauge would then display a green on black LED read out of my intake temps, and the Water temp gauge would display a digital read out of water, with a warning LED mounted above it. I am also going to wire in an buzzer to alert me if the temps go beyond a cetain point.
I was going to gut the gauges, keept the housing, then cut the space for the displays, flush mount them, and add my own wiring loom to the back of them.
Any tips / suggestions most welcome
I am using te STI style center cauge pad myself
Where did you punch the hole at to run the wires?
but where do you purchase the A pillar gauge pod.
Jus in case i decide to get more.
Just wondering what must be done with the spedometer when you put in a GenIII 3sgte since one is electronic and the other is mechanical?
A: Keep the mechanical gauge/cable and swap the gearbox sender unit with your old one

Where did the wires go? I have the same Gauge Setup and wanted to Run some gauges. Whic was afraid that if i Drillinto the area underneath that i would go thru my Vents.
I think i am going to have to remove my Dash to do this Correctly.
