Gauge pods for the WK2?

Any of you boosted guys running an AFR gauge? I keep mulling over getting one but can't figure out how/where to mount it.

I don't want to put a generic single add-on pod on the A-pillar because it will look like crap. I don't really want to mount in the overhead console and I don't see a single option there anyways.

My thought is figuring out a way to put it behind the door in front of the shifter, but that is going to be hard to see... The Innovate Motorsports timer/AFR display is really what I'm leaning towards at this point...still don't know where I'll put it though.

Curious what others are doing...if anything?

Re: Gauge pods for the WK2?

I'd do the A-pillar if there was one made that matches the SRT interior. Market is so small there won't ever be one though. The universal isn't going to match the texture...

Even the Innovate, it's a small rectangle, but there isn't a real good place to put it permanently. I was thinking I could run it up the A pillar though and mount it in the top left corner somehow...

Re: Gauge pods for the WK2?

I have an AFR and a boost gauge mounted on the overhead console. I like how it came out, the only issue is that it blocks the rear view mirror about 20%. It bothered me for about a day, but I'm used to it now, no issues and barely even notice it anymore when looking at the mirror.

Re: Gauge pods for the WK2?

Ive seen one where a guy had his pillars covered in fabric and they sewed the two gauges into the fabric

2011+ Dual A-Pillar Pods are HERE! - Dodge Charger Forums

looks like Speedlogix you may be able to send in your factory A pillar and have them modify it.

Re: Gauge pods for the WK2?

I would think that the side curtain airbags will cause problems with any pillar pods.

Yea, I looked at theirs and they can wrap it in fabric that is close to the headliner.
