id say your closest bet to fit a a/m gauge behind the front frame to make it look better get a 52mm gauge

 

but u can cut the front and squeeze a 60mm guage

Its a 52mm...

 

If u want to fit a a 60mm gauge in it u need to shave off some of the inner plastic.. This is what a 60mm Gauge looks like in the Pilar...It doesnt sit flush...

I agree thats why i picked up a Spec S pillar....

 

Cmon man i cant beleive S15 owners biatch about their air con vents.... End of the day you can bypas the airflow & still is enough to make you cool/hot...

The Spec R's get complied with the A Pillar however can still get defected for having it on....

 

Its a weird one !

the 52mm gauge will sit inside the a-pillar

 

but the the 60mm will stick out.. if you don't mind cutting a bit off

would look sweet

 

having the gauge inside the vent doesn't look bad either..

but if you're only after the boost gauge.. stick it in the a-pillar :P

 

 

yeah it is weird that it complied but you can still get defected

but it depends on the cop I reckon..

my friend been defected for it a few times.. no popo has said anything about mine yet

Can you get a simple piece of plastic like the a-pillar engineered? And what are the chances?

Popo are poopoo.

you can always change it to read x2 or x4 sensors instead of x8 sensors on the hand controller.....then you'll be able to read it

 

just have water temp and knock sensor showing and you'll have no trouble reading it and no need for separate water temp guage, just mount it somewhere you can read it, I have made a bracket that's screwed in to the container/holder left of the steering wheel, the hand controller is then held on to it with velcro.....still easy to hide if your pulled over or parking and want it out of sight

I got a Stri Guage. The rim is exactly the same colour as the Aircon vents etc and the face even has a S bade in the middle. Its a good quality Stepper motor Electronic Gauge (like Defi). I trimmed the pillar mount like above and it blends in like stock (perfect colouring).

 

The Stock Pillar Mount is still defectable, which is ass becuase if you sit in the drivers seat their is no blocked vision to speak off.
