Ok, more build tips please!

I want to get some 3 x 2-1/16" (52.4mm) gauges to fit in this beast :

Remember my cars auto, I might not need any of this stuff but I want it!

I assume with the extra stress any performance engine mod should be worth monitoring, especially since its 113,000km's and rising. Appreciate your ideas... Whats more important?

Vac - Oil Temp - Water temp?

Options include Vac, Water temp, Voltmeter, Oil temp, Oil pressure what else?

Will shop around for cheaper gauges...

I think I'd go; coolant temp, oil temp, AT fluid temp.

I'd go for the same.
But since mine has a turbo, I'd also add a boost gauge. However I'd mount that separately & on the side.

They were JDM subaru gauges :)


cost a bit, but well worth it as it came with the harness and all the senders.

I just spent an hour searching but I cant find it ( I know I have seen it here somewhere before), anyone got the link that shows someone installing a gauge pod? While I know it would be different this is the one I am getting, autometer gauges ready to go (I just dont want to stuff the lid install).
