Factory rally gauge package size
« on: November 13, 2016, 05:07:30 AM »
Hey guys I'm looking to install aftermarket gauges in the factory rally gauge pod. Does anyone know what size the originals are? 
I Don't know why. But everybody's always talking about their STI or That guys EVO, I think I'll stick with my old, but reliable AmC. Did I ever tell you I was Full blooded Eagle?

The factory gauges aren't really gauges.  There is a panel of gauges that line up with the openings in the console.  It will require some slight modification of the console to use aftermarket gauges, but it will look very similar to what the factory looks like.  I believe 2-1/8" gauges will work.  Someone has done this swap before and posted pictures on the Den.  Good luck!

I installed 2 1/8" gauges. I had to make the holes a little bit larger. I searched, but I guess the thread was lost in the big delete.
