I had never heard of Speedhut before this evening, but they offer an interesting designer option... custom-configured, full-sweep electric boost gauges:<p>Boost only, 0 to 30psi, $109.99: <A HREF="http://www.speedhut.com/el_detail_gauge.asp?auto_number=439&bhcp=1" TARGET="_blank">http://www.speedhut.com/el_det...hcp=1</A><p>Boost and Vacuum, -30 to +20psi, $169.99: <A HREF="http://www.speedhut.com/el_detail_gauge.asp?auto_number=466&bhcp=1" TARGET="_blank">http://www.speedhut.com/el_det...hcp=1</A><p>Once you choose the gauge you want, scroll to the bottom and configure it to your liking. You can toggle between day and night views. I might purchase the following when I put together my car's Christmas present (new nav system with boost gauge installed to the left of the double-din opening):<p>Boost/vacuum gauge with reverse-EL glow, metallic silver face with dark blue text, "Eurostyle" font, free added text "VOLVOSPEED", "anodized black" bezel, and a red pointer.<p>I can't decide which bezel color would look best, though... the anodized black, silver or blue are all attractive. I'm thinking the blue bezel would clash with the R's gauges - different shade of blue. Also, if you trust them to do it right, and you don't think 13 on your car are enough, you can upload a custom "R" logo for an additional $25.<p>Your thoughts?<p>- Tryg<p><br>It's 2:15am. No, the bar didn't just close. The baby is teething, so no one gets to sleep lately... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Re: Found a new gauge option (RainyS60R)

Good thing all websites aren't this much fun. If they were, I'd be spending a ton of money and time on purchases. Wait a minute, I'm already spending a ton. Make that 2 tons. Thanks for the web link!

Re: Found a new gauge option (MAC1LSR)

Check this one out.<A HREF="http://www.blitz-performance.com/Blitz_Turbo_Timer_Dtt.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.blitz-performance.c...t.htm</A> I just ordered this. I have a turbo timer but this one is much more advanced and it has a boost gauge with vacuum built in as well .All in a package about the size of a small pack of gum. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Found a new gauge option (Quick Brick)

That looks great. Now all we need is a brushed aluminum guage pod meant to fit in the cubby to the left of the radio. I know someone had a large aluminum piece made to house 3 guages where the origional radio was. Any idea where one could possible have this made?
