    Default aftermarket gauge installation

    Thought I'd just share a few pics of my install - an analogue wideband air/fuel gauge. I wanted to keep the sleeper look so no pods, nothing drilled into the dash. Also interested in seeing what others have done? I'm toying with the idea of painting the aluminium with vinyl paint to match the dash and make it look really factory, but don't mind the brushed aluminium look.

    Very clever to put it there. I think it looks great as is.

    Looks Good Chez,
    Is it functioning yet?
    So it sits on 15 when not in use?
    Scale doesn't seem evenly spread.
    I would mount it so that when reading correctly the needle was vertical , not so neat I know but easy to check at a glance.
    Does it connect to the existing oxygen sensor?

    Was going to build up one of those mixture indicator kits with leds but might opt for guage.

    It does read vertical(ish) at full power, or at least it should if your donk is tuned right.

    Yeah 14.7 is stoichimetric so it reads a little lower (richer) than that in most instances, between 12-14. I have it working but am not driving the car so can't comment on what it looks like at night. I have a lot of wiring to do/neaten up/delete. The dash is still in bits. The gauge came with a bosch 5-wire wide-band o2 sensor and bung. I'm running both of the 02 sensors - narrow band (factory original) though the wolf ECU and sideband to gauge. I can data log both.
