    Gauge pods?

    Anyone know where to get a decent set of gauge pods for 2017 LT RS Hatch? I just tuned and would like a boost gauge and oil pressure at least. Not finding anything decently fitted, and never put these gauges in anything but a snowmobile, so not even sure where to look. Google only found stuff for gen 1 when I was looking.

    I have an idea that just might be crazy enough to work. I’m going to investigate it when I’m at Chevy today, I’ll keep posted if it will actually turn into something.

    Yeah I just searched for this recently too as I'd like to install a boost gauge as well. Nothing official. This is very doable as a DIY though as Blasir posted above. If you've got some fab skills, anything is possible B-)

    There are a metric ton of aftermarket "universal" options though so you can make it work for sure.

    I want it to look very clean and as if it belongs. You shouldn’t put it on he a pillar due to the airbags, and every time you take the a pillar off you have to order and replace the harness in there. You’d have to do major modifying on the dash to get it there. But I have an idea, that I am looking into today, which will hopefully be cheap and I’ll know in the next week if I can do it, ordered the gauge and it will arrive on Saturday, and I need a body piece from chevrolet I’ll order today. Will update

    Oooh the anticipation is gonna kill me! Haha.

    I'll probably just mount mine on the dash above the left defroster vent. I'm not I terested in mounting on the pillar either.

    If you pay attention to the placement of the pods and associated wiring with regards to the airbag, you should not have that much of an issue.

    Not if you are careful


    If you look at the Gen I pods and some of the install threads it may make more sense.

    It's not an issue of being able to install it. You can install anything anywhere. It's an issue of if and when the airbags do go off, you then have a guage flying at you head instead of an airbag.
