Lotek Engineering offers a dual gauge pod for 87-89 auto seatbelts

They also offer a single pod for the 83-87 non auto seatbelts.

Below is a picture of the dual pillar pod for 87-89's

that's what I'm putting in mine.  I was keeping the boost gauge in the dash but I'd like it out to match up with the AF.  I guess if you wanted, you could throw an auto trans temp gauge in there.

I'd throw an EGT gauge in before anything if I had a vacancy in the pod or dash cluster, second would be a fuel pressure gauge.

Mike,

Might be a dumb question but EGT is exhaust temp. guage?
What is a good one to order and what is an approximate cost?
I want to put boost guage in stock location so I am not wasting space.
Going to put a/f and something else in dual guage pod.

They have an orange yellow lighted illumination to them, like a standard gauge usually looks, kinda like the stock gauges.


As a side note: Westach gauges owner Paul Westach is the brother of the founder of AUTOMETER.

Westach has been around much longer than Autometer and if you ask me the gauges are a step up from Autometers,not only in accuracy but also construction. Glass lensed gauges aren't a standard anymore like they once where.

So will the guage pod take 2 1/16th" guages?  I am assuming they will since 1/16th of an inch is not much but just want to make sure.

Never thought of that.

Also, do these a pillar pods have to be melted and formed to fit, or is it a direct fit - do they screw in, glue?
