I guess I'll be the guinea pig for this one.

HOLY ****, DID I JUST "RICE OUT"? And after all my talk about "stealth"... I am ashamed...
All you'll hear is "Hey, cool, what do those switches do? What do you mean they don't do anything? Well then why are they there? So they don't do anything?"

Of course you could just look 'em in the eye and say, "you don't want to know" (007)

It looks a heck of a lot cleaner than my installs will *cuts plastic with razor, mashes in place, then looks crossly at the results*

90-93 (and possibly 94-95) don't use a standard DIN opening. You might have to do some modifications to make this fit.

I will be going with the left center dash vent for my boost gauge, with a black face gauge it should hardly be noticable from outside the car, and much less eye movement than by the radio.

Plan is to put the LEDs for my autospeed mixture display (hooked to a LC-1) in a semicircle around the gauge.

Yup, I've got an Pioneed head unit. I had to trim some plastic tabs off the aftermarket radio mounting thing but it fits fine. I've left the CF face off for now, maybe later when I'm feeling especialy bling. I electric taped over the other opening... looks like crap; need something to go in there NOW!!!

I have achieved and otherwise unheard of level of coolness with the switches. The left switch does nothing but the right switch actually turns on the light in the gauge. I hate the toggle action and am going to replace it with the type of switch on the left.

Somebody link me something to fill that other gauge space with.
