There aren't any made as far as I'm aware for three reasons..

1. They would interfere with the airbags in the A-pillar

2. The MFD has plenty of info (except AFR and some other important data sets)

3. They would look gash.


There are gauges that will sit in the left hand drivers vent and there is a billet ring available to house them

Wouldn't you need two of certain gauges..... like boost gauges as both side of the engine are independently managed?

Yes that's true but boost will always be within a very small % of each other otherwise you'd throw errors codes and teh car wouldnt run well.

Not the best graph/picture but here's my car pull in 3rd, boost banks 1 and 2.

Pretty close..



I'd think for a simple analogue gauge with limited response time and resolution, monitoring one bank would suffice.

Yeah but in terms of having gauges, and the purpose of them (Monitoring/diagnoses) you'd kinda want two just in case one side went fizz LOL

Think back to your hot laps round a track, how often did you look at your guages??? If you want to know exactly what the car is doing then data log it, if you see low oil pressure or high AFR on a guage in a fast lap or drag run its too late you just lost your motor, thats why most race cars have 2 kin great lights that flash, shift and oil pressure.

Someone was making a pillar pod in fake carbon but E8 pack put a hit out on him as he declared it a chav step too far !!!!!!!

I don't do hot laps and spend a lot of time looking at my gauges..... they are soooo pretty and I am part of the computer generation, I stare at it in awe knowing that it was designed by the same guys that made Granturismo and often have a little play with myself I get that excited....... that's the only time I use Auto mode.

Most people I know with guages galore are paranoid about their car, prob be a lot happier with no guages and some warning lights LOL. I spend most of my time looking out the windscreen

totally agree with dudersvr.

With just ecutek, never mind syvecs you can create failsafe triggers to try to save the engine in the event of an issue.

It reacts far faster than you could to a gauge, especially with so much mfd information to choose from, never mind the additional gauges.

Ditch the info, let the ecu do the work and stick to the driving.

The balance pipe connects both sides at the inlet plenum, so they'll be close anyway.

Is this a case of mistaken identity? Or are you talking about me whining about niggles?

For the anti corrosion perforation warranty, you have to have the car seen by Shitsan every twelve months. It's in the nano print. Apparently. Or so the bastard at Shitsan said.

I've had the car from new. No bumps. No paint.

There have been some rust issues with other vehicles. Around the wing mirrors.
Some guy in Europe somewhere had his rear sub frame rust right through.

But wheel arches? Surely that's the place to put the factory effort in?
Never had a car with rusty wheel arches before. Even my 23 year old Misti GTO twin turbo didn't have any rust there. 1992 backwards to 2009. FFS.

Anyhow, the warranty isn't worth the paper. These things are shit. Germany here I come.

All a statement of fact my good man.
Nissan seem to think that if the car is faulty, then you obviously abused it. They never for one nanosecond consider it may just be their fault.

Well listen up Shitsan!! I've not abused my baby, and it's faulty!! Suck it!!

I had Defi BF linkmeter gauges in my misti GTO. With the flight recorder module too. Pretty nifty. But not much use. If you like em, go for it.
