    Yeah, makes sense. The angle is a bit goofy, i'll admit, but it works fine. Alex

    I ran the gauges that way in my sentra, but didn't like them the angle that I had to look at them while on track. I killed my AC and as mine might be a partial DD, it's not really. We have a nice subaru OB as the real DD and to be used on any type of trip.

    Here's the way I did my install: It's my dd, so I wasn't looking to get rid of the center vents, plus I don't like the way that looks. Yes, probably more functional, but I wanted to retain my a/c while going ka-t, which makes getting rid of the vents somewhat counterproductive. In any event, I like the way it looks. Alex

    Another idea would be to run a bracket behind it with threads to accept some button head screws going through it.

    I forgot to add to this post that the gauge pod popped out during the last track day... I kind of guessed it would. The only fix that I could think of was to use safety wire to tie to the back of one of the gauges and pulled it down behind the stereo and wrapped the other end to a brace. This keeps just enough tension on the pod so it can't pop out and still allows me to remove it easily enough if needed.

    Gauges for the 240

    The gauges used here are from ISSPRO, a company that first started making gauges for boats and has slowly entered the automotive market. These are prices between Autometer and Greddy and have a full 270 degree sweep for all there electronic gauges. I've been using these gauges for the past 2 years in my turbo sentra, now it's time for them to be passed onto the 240. Center vent removed and wiring already ran... I actually had to use a screwdriver to bust out the center vent, that wasn't how I wanted it to happen. Gauges installed... the mount came from Ebay, around $22 shipped, and is a snug fit in the vent opening. It came as a raw aluminum finish and I used a couple shots of rustolium flat black to keep the install more stock looking and the reflections off my face. I still need to find a way to secure the panel though, either some type of double-sided tape or a few dabs of silicone. With no flash... I really love how these gauges match the stock gauges. This almost looks factory...

    If there wasn't a center vent there originally, that would look like a factory piece.
Working...
