    GTX Boost Gauge Mirror Pod mod.

    I did this mod a few years back. Just bringing it up for the members who have a GTXSC. easy to do!
    Take a piece of acrylic plastic or lexan 1/4 thick. get correct size hole saw for what gauge you decide to use.
    This one is an Autometer liquid filled gauge that is 2 5/8.
    Disassemble your mirror housing from the hood and remove the mirror, pattern onto the plastic, be sure to cover in masking tape. Fit plastic piece to the housing for a good fit. I cut this out with an air saw or sabre saw, go slow to not melt plastic. sand all edges to shape with whizzer, final sanding was done with wet/dry for smooth look. Since I used clear acrylic, I painted the back with semi flat black, it will give the appearance of gloss black when viewed from the face.
    To mount the panel in the housing you need to make a few stops for it. I used little plastic shim pieces glued in with epoxy to the desired depth set.
    You need to drill a few holes inline from inside the housing thru the hood, this is for the capilary tube. view the pic to see where I did this.
    after that is cured and gauge is mocked up and trial fit into housing apply a bead of clear silicone to inside perimeter, route the capilary tube thru the housing, insert the assembled panel into the silicone, apply masking tape to secure temporarily until the silicone dry`s, give or take 24 hours.
    Take note how the bolts to mount the housing are oriented, one is flipped around and a nut and washer are used. since you can not get at the bolts after the panel is installed, install the housing to the hood first.
    I routed the capilary tube between the inner and outer hood securing it with a few zip ties and ran the tube down thru the hole where the accordian seal is for the shock rod that holds up the hood. Then rout the tube any way you`d like to the source of vac/boost signal, some use the nipple on the manifold and others use the billet IC block off cap, in this GTX I used the manifold as a source of signal!...

    the gauge is also set in silicone, the fit is snug, so a little silicone will hold it in there...

    the good thing about using silicone is all this can be removed and cleaned up and reinstall your mirror should you decide that at a later time!!!

    view the pics, have fun!......

    I don`t see why not. If the mirrors swivel/adjust and are removable then yeah.
    The RXP`s are totally different housing...
