Holden Monaro gauge pod

I see the 05 Holden Monaro now sports a center gauge pod with oil pressure & voltage gauges. I have seen a few after market center console gauge pods for the GTO, but the Monaro's is by far the best looking. I Googled and could not find the same pod. Since the Monaro's is made down under, the driver side is on the right, so of course the Monaro's pod faces right. Does anyone know if somone manufactures the same type of pod but facing to the left?

Thanks for the info. I see from the web site that the 2004 GTO pod is not available right now, but will be soon. I will order it once available. Hopefully the instructions for hooking up the gauges is straight forward.

Geoff at JHP told me when I ordered mine that the 05's harness was just down inside and would plug right in. I fished it up and it did just that. Something bout the 04 didn't include a factory hookup and would need to be wired seperately. Good luck. Semper Fi

I really like those, and I want a set but I'm not about to pay that much for two gauges. I know there are other choices now, and before long there will be more. Maybe they will include them on the 06??

I agree, while it is a cool looking gauge pod, $450 is alot of money for two gauges and a piece of plastic. I wonder if there is a way ordering directly from Holden??? In addition, since I have the 2004 GTO, I wonder what additional costs/time are involved with wiring? Maybe someone out there has a 2004 and can offer some advice.

Arrowhead makes an empty console pod...I haven't bought one but I've seen it. It looks pretty good, for a hand-laid fiberglass thingmie.

Gravana sells them, if you don't want to deal directly with Arrowhead. I sure as hell wouldn't.

http://www.gravanatuning.com/applica...5.7.aspx?cat=4

He also has gauge packages.

Personally, I'm considering the Arrowhead pod populated by an Autometer D-Pic gauge ( http://www.pfyc.com/store/merchant.m...ory_Code=GAINT ) and an Aeroforce Technology Interceptor OBD2 gauge ( http://www.aeroforcetech.com/ )-- far more flexible and easy to install in an '04.

Of couse, now you're bumping up close to $600...
