Hey guys
I just installed a prosport boost gauge on my 2012 mazdaspeed 3. it looks and works great and the install was pretty easy and fast.

comments wellcome. not the best set up but looks clean. i didnt want to punch any wholes in the car.

Clean install and excellent write up. The Evo gauges are nice cause they have the sweep on the outside and the digital read out on the inside. Someone really needs to come out with a clever stealth mount for gauges on the Genpu though. I don't really like any of the mount options presently available.

There's a guy on MSF that make a single and double pod that clips into the vent. His name is blockhead8. His work is pretty nice and the price is reasonable.

damn I didnt realize you could run cables from the engine bay to the cabin like that. I kept trying to fish through the hood cable release gromet and never got it. Now I can continue my project :D

Good write up.........But those wires you ran through the door , question, if the weatherstripping is put back in place it bends the wire against the door when you close it. I tried it with one wire as well and I didn't put the weatherstripping back all the way.

WTF....Nooo... Just no....
Do not run your wires like that.... Come on now. That's how you pinch them and eventually break them. Wire them through a hole in your firewall and do it properly. Come on now.
Unless you want shorted out fuses everywhere...then go ahead and do that.
