opinions please :) hot or not?

hey whats up! finally figured out where I am going to place the gauges... I decided to ditch the traditional pillar gauge pod and go with something a little different for us 7thgener's (im not saying im the first one!!! im just saying there are alot of pillar gauge pod setups) let me know what you guys think! regardless I love it :-p

The one by the cluster is a boost gauge if you guys didnt know
and the one down by the center console is a a/f gauge.


Ooo yeahh! and NO it does not get in the way of the cluster... It covers up 0-30 mph.. (i think i'll live) and it covers 8k redline which I dont think I will be revving that high anytime soon

Looks pretty good, a bit too prominent though I think, is your boost pressure really more important to you than your speed and revs, if it is, being such a small gauge and being so close to you the driver will mean having take your eyes off the road and focus on something much closer to you (vs. the larger, farther stock gauges). Looks good though, but just questioning the positioning

Looks good..kinda gets in the way like you said, but I'd have prolly placed it similarly to maintain the harmony with the other gauges..
Depending on the color your gauges light up, a red H emblem on the steering would look nice.

hmm from what I know its a honda dealer option along with the leather seats it came with.

I bought it like that though so I wouldnt really know exactly where to get it!

Ive been thinking about MAYBE selling my skunk2 shift **** and getting this one... maybe it would go better with my interior? (im talking about the goldish looking one)

the air/fuel gauge is right on the money looks damn good... as for the boost not bad and as long as you still have the option to see what the rpm and mph are (and youre actually happy with them) theres nothing wrong with it and it looks pretty clean. real good job

i dunno about the boost gauge. why not a dual pillar ? i think they look cleaner than the bezel and anywhere else you can put a gauge. the a/f gauge looks good there.

Vantage should not be trusted
Looks good, but i prefer having my guages in the same spot. it seems like ude have to look in 2 seperate places for your gauges. 1 thing i like is its not that seeable from the road, and less theives looking at your car is always a bonus.
