    GI: Accurate Stock Gauges

    Alright guys, this one will probably show up sometime this winter if theres enough interest. Would anyone be interested in a way to make the stock center gauges accurate? For example, have the lower tick on the oil pressure gauge be somethnig like 50/75 psi and the upper tick be 100/150psi.

    I dont like the idea of paying up the wazoo for gauges that dont fit my tastes, and on a daily driver I just want something that works and looks stock. Just like the data system and the pop up controller, I'll most likely be building this for myself anyway, and just checking here to see if anyone would be interested

    It would involve replacing the sender with something more accurate ($65 range for the oil pressure is what I'm looking at now). It would also involve a core system where you send in your gauges, as alot of modifying is required.

    Might be able to include other features found on other gauges as well.

    What do you guys think? Yay or nay? Any questions?

    I would like to get in on this. I'm always down for keeping the stock appearance, but making it better.
    Moving on to reality. Sold my 3KGT, and now I am selling off my parts.

    Great Thats the game plan. Not sure what I can do with the boost gauge as I own an N/A, but I didnt have any trouble finding guinea pigs for the light controller so I think I'll be able to work something out.

    If you could get the stock center three gauges to be accurate, I would SO be down for that!!

    Me too, I am ALL about keeping the stock look inside. D

    Did you finish the pop-up controller? I haven't been on the "OLD" site to see.

    Would it be weird if we did something like double the scale on the boost gauge? For example, 7psi would be 14 psi, and 14 psi would be 28? What about some sort switch to move between the two?
