My ZZP gauge pod install.

1411 14
Finally got around to installing my ZZP gauge pod. I must say, it fits perfect. Great job, ZZP. All thats left is the wiring. Have to figure out where to connect the dimming/light wire. Im assuming i can tap into some wire right at the switch? Also, Im thinking of using fuse #6 as the switched and #5 as the constant?
Anyway, the most PITA part was getting the factory pillar trim off. Plan on buying a new one and the big clip. I already bought the big clip ahead of time from reading others posts. You'll be lucky if that middle clip tab doesnt break.

Picture below.

Yup, I'm not a big mod person but I have been buying stuff from ZZP for about 15 years. ZZP has never let me down.

Dude, if you don't know about the add-a-circuits they are awesome. These things are better than sliced bread :cool:
Im thinking of using fuse #6
That is where I power my dash camera from. (y)

Yep, I used the add-a-circuit. Used #6 for the switched and #5 for the constant. Works perfect.

My next question is, what boost should I hit on a stock turbo? When idling, it sits at like -25- -30 and when its under load, I hit +12 so far. I have a ported intake, exhaust only has a high flow cat and a magnaflow 5" muffler. Not sure if that effects boost. Also added a Forged motorsports recirculating bypass valve with stock spring. Wont add the other until I get a tune.

Looks clean. I only have around -17 vacuum at idle, hmm wonder what makes the difference.
Ported intake, maybe? I know that made a difference in the feel of the car. I have the hose to the gauge attached to a TB spacer. I didnt think there would be that much vacuum. lol

ZZP makes an absolutely killer A-pillar. I've had mine in the Cobalt for over a decade now - people still are amazed at how factory it looks.

Looks nice. On the 1.6 diesel engine at idle is 15 psi. Pushing the pedal gets me 45 psi peaked. Big difference compared to the gasoline engine.
Diesel don’t have vacuum… I have a proper diesel manifold gauge and a pyrometer. I have the 2.0 diesel and at idle, I am reading 0 or in your case (14.7 aka atmosphere) and when I am at wot I can see 30-32 psi (it has a little tune in it). Factory it was only 20-22 psi.
