View Full Version : Gauges in the pod

Hey all.

I want to install some gauges, 3, in my pillar pod. I was just curious if anyone has any pictures of there GA with a pillar pod in it? I just kind of wanted to see what it looks like before I go into it.

Going with electric gauges, Oil Pressure, Air/Fuel Ratio, and Voltage. Will be autometer stuff, going to order the adapter harnesses from PFYC.

Anything I should know about this install? I tried a search, did not find much info or any pictures.

Dont get the A/F gauge. Its useless unless you have a wideband O2 sensor.

^^ same three I have. But the A/F is worthless. Thinking of swapping it for a tranny temp one.

Yup, just has pretty colors :)

Thanks for the quick replies guys!

I will put a Tranny temp gauge in instead of A/F. I am thinking I will put in a 3 gauge pod, then put A/F, fuel pressure, and one other gauge on top of my heater vents above the cd player. What can I say...I love gauges and switches, the more the better.

It is nice that gauges are such an easy install in these cars, harnesses already made, sweet!

I swear there have been times that mine has bounced along with the beat of my music...maybe I'll just wire it to the

If you still want to go with an a/f gauge,get this one

holy crap, thats a bit on the expensive side haha.

Its expensive, but it actually works. If you are running boost or nitrous, it is absolutely critical to keep an eye on the A/F ratio if you dont want your engine to go BOOM

Where can you get the guages that lights up red, I'm getting a 3 guage pod for X-mas

I think the Nexus series from Autometer lights up red. You can choose different color schemes and such, but VERY expensive, like $300 a gauge, probably more. If I had the cash, I would go with them, but, I do not haha.

Do your regular A/F gauges not provide accurate results?? I do not have a turbo setup, NOS, nothing, I just want it for looks.

I went with Carbon Fibre gauges, Oil pressure, Tranny Temp, A/F, and volt.

The gauges I gave came with covers for the bulbs. They changed the color so I used the red over. I think you can actually buy red bulbs to put in them too. I'll try to get a pic of mine tonight and post it up.

should i throw in aeroforce gauges in the mix... tons of options and the ability to clear error can also order red displays and a pontiac logo...

Definately not the best quality pictures but I got Nordskog Digital Gauges.. Volt, Oil Pressure, A/F (for wow factor).. Hard to believe that those pictures are 4 1/2 years old.

Aeroforce interceptor - does everything you could want and then some. I have one in my car, well worth the money. Simple to install too - just put the gauge in the pod, and run the wire down the piller, through the fuse box, down to the little terminal under the steering wheel.

They have it on (where I got mine).
