Has anyone installed one of these?

Has anyone installed this type of gauge pod on your dash? They look cool. They even make a radar detector to fit in one of the locations in pod. Looks pretty cool!

I have not seen this one installed, but of the one's available out there, this one is my least favorite. I like the SCSS Gator pod. I think that one looks the best. It looks pretty much like the JHP but it doesn't stick up as much, which I think looks better and it's not as expensive.

scss gator pod

Found it. It does look sweet. Wonder how hard it would be to wire gauges up, anyone done this before. I know it depends on what exact gauges are put in the pod, just wondering how hard to wire up?

Team SCSS Gator Gauge Pod - 2004-06 GTO

They are $209.00 on sale at maryland speed. More expensive than the banshee.

JHP are nice with the factory voltage and oil pressure gauges included for $400.00. Now I have to find out if my GTO was built before Jan '06 to see if it has the plug and play adapter. What would I have to do with the JHP unit, just plug the guages into an adaptor inside the dash, and it will operate these guages. Sounds too easy?

This guage is nice, complements the interior perfectly with the matching guages. A boost guage and O2 wide band sensor would be awsome with a FI set-up. Unfortunatly, with having an NA car, I have no clue of what guages to put there.

has anyone ever seen this, gage pod

I have seen them but I don't like them, they can only accept 2 gauges meaning it can only monitor 2 items, You are much better off with a DASH HAWK, this thing keeps a close eye on everything . IAT's, oil pressure, water temp, trans temp,and the list just goes on and on

Installation

To install the gauge pod, from the JHP website, you have to have a special tool, remove the stereo, remove screw under ashtray area...etc. I'm not doing that to my goat. Skip that idea. It looks cool, but if you F something up, it will never be the same.

All of that is not necessary. Just carefully pry up the blank panel above the a/c vents and shine a flashlight in there. You should be able to see the connector tucked down to the right somewhere and fish it out w/ a wire coat hanger or similar tool. Even if your one of the unlucky ones whose connector wasn't visible taking the dash apart is a simple process. There really isn't anything to mess up, just taking out screws and unsnapping clips. Also, you don't need a special radio tool either, just get a wire hanger and bend it into shape. Personally, I went w/ the jhp gauges because of the factory fit/finish and plug n play capability. Besides, these are the gauges that are supposed to come with our cars anyway but gm removed them when they were converted to american gto's from holden monaro's.
