I purchased my car with the boost gauge/oil temp gauge under the dash(in front of the shifter.) I wanted to add the A/F gauge for tuning, as well as safety but with my long legs it was impossible to see while driving.
The boost gauge fit perfect in the vent, although I had to do some cutting/molding to get the A/F gauge to fit. I made a block off plate for the A/C outlet under the dash(which I rarely use anyhow.)
Excuse the crappy phone pic. I left my camera at work.



Ignore the dials, will have her on the lift in the next couple of days to hook up the sender units in the engine compartment.

Thanks
The boost gauge was almost a direct fit only requiring some minor toying with the dremel. I assumed that purchasing the same size gauge would net the same results on the other side, but the AEM was a bit larger in diameter and even if it fit would stick out too far. The majority of the labor for the boost gauge was removing the dash. For the W/B a lot of time was spent sanding, painting, and making a mount for the rear. Hard to say total time as I pulled everything apart over a week ago and only worked on it when I had some spare time.

LoL, fortunately the block off plate worked very well.... The side vents seem to flow almost 2x what they did before.
