Started up the car with my new gauges!!!

I installed Autometer Phantom gauges in my car, tach, speedo, temp, oil press, fuel level, and volts. They are more responsive than stock, so I can see any movements in stats. But did anyone know that the F2T's idle with over 50psi of oil pressure? I don't have the fuel level hooked up yet, but all the rest work And it all looks SOOOO sweet!! I also have a 3 gauge pod installed on my A-pillar with boost, EGT, and A/F. I read ~3-4" of vacuum at idle, and it goes almost to 0 when revved, but not all of the system is closed yet, so I don't think it's accurate, A/F does its dance at idle, I will test for what ratio it goes for once I drive it to the car-wash The interior has come together so nicely. Just need to finish assembly. And I finally get my turbo next wednesday, according to raw.

Sounds pretty sweet with your new setup. You should post pics in the members area. If Raw says you are getting something soon, just add a couple of months to it.

Yeah I already added the six months. I already know it's coming soon, and I REALLY hope it's wednesday

I do have pics finally, but I'm not at home and don't have the disk. I'll get them up later tonight or tomorrow hopefully...

Oh and the gauges cost like 325 to 350, plus the aluminum and shaping/cutting bending-pain in the ass stuff like that:)
