afr guage placement

Where are you guys with afr guages, installing them in the cockpit I would like to put mine in the center console somehow, but there is too much junk in there already. central locking and ac controls.

I also am installing a fuel pressure gauge for added safety since I have aftermarket fuel pumps

I have an innovate WB system and gauge. I made a small aluminum bracket that is double stick taped(auto trim stuff) to the steering column so that I can see it while on boost.

I tried it on my steering wheel colum but it was to low and to close to me . I can hardly read the gauges so it easier to see the gauges higher and to the side. I am also 6'4" .

It took a little work, but I was able to mount mine in the ashtray...

Mine is a fairly inexpensive (~$400) WMS. I am currently doing a CIS to M48 conversion and don't know if this will work with the new setup, so I may have to get rid of it.

But regardless, it is small enough to fit into the slot at the bottom of the center console.

I cut a new panel out of aluminum and removed the central locking button ( I found that I never used it...so I wouldn't miss it) I put the AFR gauge where my clock used to be.

I have a small digital guage mounted on a bracket just below the speedo. Easy to see. I also have toggle switch mounted to switch the display between the left bank and right bank of cylinders (on a NA motor mind you)

cheers

I take it you just screwed the bracket into the pillar?

Definitely funtional but I want a more factory look like the molded pods offer...possibly covered in leather.
