Clean install and excellent write up. The Evo gauges are nice cause they have the sweep on the outside and the digital read out on the inside. Someone really needs to come out with a clever stealth mount for gauges on the Genpu though. I don't really like any of the mount options presently available.

There's a guy on MSF that make a single and double pod that clips into the vent. His name is blockhead8. His work is pretty nice and the price is reasonable.
