Default Discreet Boost Gauge

The 52mm VDO fitted in the outside air vent perfectly, with a bit of felt attached it is a friction fit, and to remove it I can use a suction cup on the glass.
Any ideas for a discreet WB02 much appreciated?

The pedals are there too!!
One turbo advantage though: No brake master cylinder to melt!

Got a pic of your setup magnamx?

Not the WB but the boost gauge and the WB is in the other pod now.

Just did the wideband install, and I fitted the gauge in the ashtray cover, not as discreet as the boost gauge but in summer here I need the centre vents.
Only discreet when the old gym sox are thrown over it!

somtiems i serkiously feel like just taking my column gauges off when i have the top off so no one can see them... with the black rx-7 intercooler and if i drive it out of boost...no one would even know.

but then again... who needs to be discreat about gauges anymore, there are so many civics and pos cars running around with gauges(battery voltage and stuff like that hahahaha just to make their car look cool) that people probbaly wouldn't beleive that i had a wideband or boost gauge... no joke.
