Anybody used New Vintage USA Gauges?

Hey Guys,

I've got the next steps of my turbo conversion coming up, and I'm looking for solutions for how to accommodate additional gauges. I ran across New Vintage USA's website (New Vintage USA-Our Original Porsche Work), and it looks like they modify VDO gauges to include additional measurements and indicators (e.g. CHT, Voltage, etc.). Here's a pic of one of their "Quad" gauges:



I also liked their tach/boost gauge setup as it goes beyond the standard 1 BAR measurement of the 930 gauge:




Is anyone using one of these gauges? It looks like a clean approach to adding more gauges and keep the interior looking stock.

yes, mark is very helpful... I had all of my gauges refaced and did the quad gauge, too.

also added the LED lighting so I can actually see the gauges at night.

They look great Andy, have you made any progress on the build stage 2? Got the turbo hooked up again?

Hey Spence, I just got the suspension all sorted out and ready for the extra power. I should have the big brakes on next weekend. I'm still shopping around for installers/tuners, and planning that actual conversion takes place sometime over the winter. Fingers crossed! How's your speed-demon running? Any upgrades in the works?

Hardly a speed demon compared to your specs but it has run flawlessly for 3 years with boost now and still puts a big smile on my face, it's also enough to freak out my friends! Once I get my garage built I will build it pretty much the same way you have. Good luck with the project, keep us posted!
