52 MM DeFi Blue Racer (Ricer) Gauge, CFW FRP Pod, Flat Black trim paint...<p>Grounded to the window control harness. 5 wires needed to be run through the door so this was not very fun. <p>Big ups to Ride_R for running the wires through the door.<p>EDIT: Car hadnt been started in 2 days so the vaccuum is reading high at startup. car spikes to 16lbs but settles at about 14-15lbs at WOT. I shouldve let her warm up before taking pics but whatever.<p><IMG SRC="http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs181.snc1/6009_536885664748_8702366_31976266_732449_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs181.snc1/6009_536885669738_8702366_31976267_631444_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs161.snc1/6009_536885674728_8702366_31976268_3583665_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs161.snc1/6009_536885679718_8702366_31976269_3586134_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs181.snc1/6009_536885684708_8702366_31976270_8259568_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs161.snc1/6009_536885624828_8702366_31976260_1722273_n.jpg" BORDER="0">

Looks good.<p>Though having the power cable for your GPS running across your instrument cluster would drive me nuts. Have you thought of re-routing?

I have my NAV right under the rear view mirror and I often feel that it's blocking my view.<p>That's an interesting place for your NAV, but I use my sun visor all the time...

Re: CFW FRP Boost Gauge Installed....yea another one... (VolvokidS60R)

lol. new question guys? this gauge required both constant and switched power. I used to have BOTH constant and switched power sources hooked up to SWITCHED fuses....and it read perfectly (14lbs)<p>now that I fixed it (hooked up the constant to the power drivers seat fuse) it only reads up to 12 lbs...<p>is it the car or the way I have it wired? Is using the driver power seat fuse bad because its 30AMP? <p>What other constant sources can be found in the fuse panel in the dash of an 04?
