Re: Boost Gauge Pod (JimLill)

So as I understand it, IPD delved into the area but then after making some prototypes just lost their ambition? Perhaps not enough profit for effort?<p>Is there one in existence or do I need to make one?<br>

Re: Boost Gauge Pod (JRL)

A month or two, are you kidding?<p>They've been working on it for two years.<br>That's like new engine R&D time!!<br>It's a Boost gauge for christ's sake.<p>I think I'll have my boost gauge built like I want, installed in two weeks.<p><br>ok... unless you can tell me they will have the R emblem in it and it can be covered in Attacama leather to match my interior.<br>Then I'll wait, otherwise I think I'll just go the DIY route.

Re: Boost Gauge Pod (GrecianVolvo)

Well, I know some brilliant engineers who have horrible english. Perhaps they just don't concern themselves with it, but I don't hold that against them at work. Doesn't seem to affect their pay. <p>Albert Einstein who was known for not being able to remember basic information or even what he had for breakfast would often quip, "why fill my head with useless information I can easily look up in a book?"<p>I presumed this was an informal format. Maybe I was wrong?<br>I don't concern myself with spelling or grammar when I write on these<br>boards and I would bet a fair many here don't either. <br>However...<br>Here's an idea, instead of a discussion about boost gauges on this automotive forum, let's make it a grammar fest. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Here;<p>From: <A HREF="http://www.meredith.edu/grammar/plural.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.meredith.edu/grammar/plural.htm</A><p><I>Possessive forms (Bedford 36a/Hodges' 15a)<br>A possessive form of a noun signifies that the noun owns something:<p>A musician's talent<br>A woman's ambition<p>Possessive forms call for a properly placed apostrophe.

Re: Boost Gauge Pod (GrecianVolvo)

Ok, well the gauge has been ordered and I went with this one.<br><A HREF="http://www.seffects.com/parts/touG10580.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.seffects.com/parts/touG10580.htm</A><p>It was just a bit closer and really not good enough IMO, but after searching for 8 hrs, ...it'll do. The price was low enough that if a <I>better</I> gauge <U>ever</U> comes out, I won't have any heartburn over how much was spent on the R' Active.<p>I' haven't decided for on either a single A pillar pod with matching gray cloth cover to help blend in or to go with a column pod in black, which if I do that, then I may go ahead and get a pyro and do a dual column pod, which I haven't found any specific one's that fit, only a semi-universal type like this one.<br><A HREF="http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/AUM15014.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/AUM15014.htm</A><p>No dual A pillar pod for sure. (Just not for me)<p>Anyone found a dual coulumn pod specific to the 60R?<p><br>

That would be an ideal look. One on either side with silver bezels and blue face.
