I've finally (well sort of) got the gauges installed now
I had a sunday when I could get some stuff done so set about getting all the gauges installed and wired in and getting the cabels ran in place ready for all the sensors to be fitted.
here's a few pics of ripping all the dash out
The top air vents and my head unit surround simply just pull off
a/c controls and radio removed (4x6mm bolts) and unplugged
once all this was done I then spent a bit of time sorting out all the cables for the sensors, some of the cables had to be losely ran in from the engine bay as some of the plugs were a bit big to pass throught the rubber boot in the bulkhead.
I removed the battery just to make the job that bit easier to do.
also removed battery tray so I could run some cables under it, and you can see the rubber boot bottom right of the corner.
I also had an extension cable for the power fc so fitted that whilst I had it all apart
with this done I could spend a bit of time running them in behind the dash. ( i was quite busy at this point and forgot to take pics) and connecting all the plugs up and wiring up and the 12v supply for the gauges.
but after some time I ended up with this
The boost gauge, oil pressure and oil temp sensors have been fitted since the pics and connected up.
I can't get the old egt sensor out the turbo housing as it looks to be in cross threaded
so will need to weld in a boss in the downpipe so I can fit it. also need to buy a few bits so I can connect the water temp in and machine up a fitting so that I can fit the fuel pressure sensor in as well.
so a few more pics to come still.
