Just a few pics of the "install" I dont have any pics from installing the bung but its pretty straight foward. Pic a location at least 18 inches from the turbo, grab the right size hole saw drill bit, weld it in and route the wires somewhere out of the way.

I decided to place it where the clock was since I only had this one gauge to put in otherwise I might of placed it above the radio instead. I dont need the clock as I have a phone or radio to tell me that.

I bought a square of lexan plastic from home depot and attempted to copy the original screw holes for the clock as best I could.

Once I put the dash back together the silver ring wasnt centered so I had to elongate the holes and also shave the plastic to make the sqaure smaller.

I also spray painted the back of the piece with black primer and left the front facing clear and it gave it a glossy look.

I did this in prep for hopefully a P.I.M.P. one day down the road and also because I like monitoring stuff on the engine. Right now its at 11 a/f at WOT on 15 PSI and around 15 a/f at cruising with 3k. Ive also noticed the car runs rich when its cold at idle around 12 and leans out to 15 at idle after a while.

I dont know how I could actually mess around with the a/f ratio without a pimp. Either way its a good method of keeping and eye on things so my motor doesnt good BOOM down the road.

Neat install! Your AFR readings (stock ECU) sound pretty normal to me.

You could tweak the VAM, but then it would change the whole AFR curve. Not sure if there is a good solution without a piggyback tuner or standalone.

Thanks man im new to this whole custom installing thing lol. One thing I learned during this ordeal was the only paint the backside of the plastic and leave the other side clear. It looks 10 times better this way more glossy.
