    in preperation for the bigen motor id like to pick up new gauges.. but my question is if i buy say autometer sport comp elec gauges.. how complicated would they be to hook to the stock wiring etc.. so that i can get use of them in the mean time :boink:


    also, there is a company that makes "gauge pods" that are basically a bezel that fits in our dash, and holds whatever standard size gauges you want..

    anyone remember who that would be

    yea, problem i'm thinking is that the PATS will freak out if the stock cluster is not hooked up.. but i'm not 100% on that one :noes:

    what is your setup?

    i think i remember you saying like a nitroused up 460 or somethin?

    if you are doing that, i doubt you are going to be needing the PATS since it won't be a daily driver and you dont really need all that mess.....and im pretty sure your tuner can just turn off the PATS with a handheld tuner or something similar.

    yea 514 actually :) and fvck not daily driving it.. you can get anywhere in my city in 10 mins and we get 6 mo of snow.. for the dry 6 mo it will be driven :behind:


    but the way its looking this season might get spent with the 2v (my builder is WAY behind)


    so i was thinking of sticking it out, but i want to keep progressing towards the finished product... so if i could have it work now, and then that would be prefrerable to buying gauges and having them sit on my dresser for 6 months..


    and the car will be carb'd so a tune to disable the pats would be a huge waste of money haha.
