What are you going to do for the rest of your cars systems monitering if you deleate the clock on your C2 Turbo. Like brake faults,fan rotation sensor, and the rest of the systems warnings?

Who said delete the clock? You can either mount the boost gauge somewhere else like a-pillar.

Another option if you want the gauge in the clock position is to wrap the clock and put it inside the dash.

I want the a-pillar setup but I can't figure out why the heck no one makes a pod for us.

True, pillar would be a perfect solution but for the 911 I have never seen one that would fit, considering how narrow it is. Some of the ones on ebay are so cheap I guess they could be modified and I remember reading a post some time back that a fellow Pelican did just that. If i remember there was some cutting and melting of the plastic to re-form the fit. Still sounds like a lot of work

Yep, no Porsche specific models. Can't fathom why with all the turbo cars. Any idea where that link is for the modification of a non-porsche pod?

Check the post from Juan Ruiz, he modified a cup from a mitsubichi that he cut and molded with a heat gun. Sounds easy but

I did some searching and can't find the post.

That looks pretty darn good and I'm up for the challenge. If you could locate it, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

R.T. Falk was talking about removing clock. It wouldn't do me much good wrapped up in a rag and stuffed in back of dash if I had a fan-belt break and didn't hear it and fried an engine.

Here is some more info on the display...

There are two ways of selecting displayed values, both done via a front push
button.
1 You can program a start up value (example the gauge start always a boost
gauge)
2 You can cycle through values during operation. Each pres of the button
cycles the gauge to a next value.
Pressing the button for 1 second shows peak and hold values.

The gauge has tinted openings so the light levels are suitable for day and
night operations. It's kind of like all LEDs are already in a dark cavity
(night) There is no blinding light and the is no need for dimming. You will
agree when you see the gauge.


Sounds pretty good to me. However most seem to prefer the analog gauge.
