Thanks for your comments. The pod was custom made. I made it on my own. I used an OEM center dash and a pod from a Subaru Sti and joined them together.

nice, that looks really good. great to hear that you made it yourself too.

lease don't entertain the idea of wrapping it in carbon vinyl, it's so obviously fake and looks s@3!.

Ok, today it was a long day. In the morning i went to the exhaust shop to install the EGT and AFR sensors. Both sensors were installed before the sport catalyst. Now I did not fit the EGT sensor on the 6th cylinder (as i know the gases on this cylinder are hotter than the others), because the technician from the exhaust shop proposed it would be better to fit the EGT sensor prior the catalyst so as i will have a reading from all cylinders and not from one only. Also if i was going to fit the sensor on the 6th cylinder he said he had to remove the manifold to drill the hole properly, which was a lot of work since the compressor had to be removed. so i decided to install the egt sensor prior the catalyst. If i do not get accurate readings i will move it to 6th cylinder.

In the afternoon i did all the wiring work. I installed all the wiring and connected the power supply. It was not so easy as i thought. I had to remove the radio-cd to pass the cables and also the dismantle the short shift to pass throught the cables from the sensors. At the end the result was very good. Here are some pics of the gauges working at the garage, after returnig from a ride.

During driving the AFR was around 15.6 and 16.8. The EGT temperature indicated 75-89 (x10). Now i think i set it to show celcius and not fahrenheit, but i will check again tomorrow morning. Both readings were indicated at a speed between 140-200km/h.
