Went from this setup in the 7
With this true rat's nest behind it
To a more simple setup found here
Did I like the triple gauge pod? Yes.
Did I like having all that info at my disposal? Yes.
Did I like the location? NO.
Did I need an oil temp with a water temp? NO.
Did I need another oil pressure gauge? Most definitely NOT.
Most importantly - were they in a terrible location?? OF COURSE!
I would never recommend putting gauges in that location to anyone. I didn't need any more info for the oil standpoint but it was cool looking. I think I will be better off with the pocket space there.
I know that the water temp gauge being down by the feet is even more dangerous. But that's only installed to ensure proper e-fan thermostat temperature kick on, from a safety standpoint. And I drilled and tapped the sensor into the stock water pump outlet, so it can't go anywhere else anyways haha
