Thanks for comments guys. It was a bitch to make it work so the positive feedback is always nice

My car actually has heated seats option; however, I have relocated the buttons inside the central armrest storage. I can post pictures of that as well.

I used Blitz DC gauges because I trust them the most. Those particular gauges are also shallow mount which allowed me to make them stick out of the dashboard less. The gauges have a separate unit that accepts all the input signals from sensors and I keep that unit in my ECU box. That makes it easier for me to wire all the sensors and boost. The gauges measure Exhaust Temp, Boost, and Oil Temp. Hope it answers some questions.

i checked the blitz gauge website in the U.K. saw the DC1 and DC2 gauges,
but they do not look like your gauges....any chance u have the model numbers??

i just want the same look and fit as you have.
btw, these gauges are a bit pricey, and there seem to be no U.S. dealers listed on that site. where did u get them?
lastly, where there any good quality but a bit cheaper gauge alternative for your type of install ??

thanks

I used the Zeitronix guage installed into the sunglass holder. Will display Boost / EGT / AFR also has peak hold and date logging capabilities.

I like this a lot. Which Zeitronix model is it and how much did you pay (if you don't mind me asking)?

Another in the ashtray sunglass holder

Mine. Big thanks to M3to335 for the pointers and support during the planning and fabrication.

Installed:


Wiring, switched and constant 12v power, & ground connections


Like others, my goals for the installation were peak recall and the ability to hide the gauge when not in use; this solution meets both criteria.
