    hey danny, i like how you did that. very professional looking. do you have problem with the analog gauge? i kinda like the digital one diggs has. i like the round one though. diggs, what did you use as a backing plate? thanks

    love my dynotune! Heck, without it I never would have pulled the SC'er and found the disaster that hath befallen me this weekend and it would have gotten worse.

    not mirror mounted cause I want to keep it away from the water in my choppy water. so, it goes in the glovebox

    No problems, just have to secure the vacuum line so it don't shake. When it don't shake, the reading is steady....

    But because of the depth I put the gauge at, it hit the steering brace, and I had to notch/reweld the brace....

    i used abs plastic that radio installers use to make face plates for radio installs

    most of your radio install places should have some.

    The dynotune are suppose to not be water proof but mine have been very wet many times rain storm overnight with ski outside and just nose diving into waves, 2 years with no problems the only thing I have to do sometimes is pull the lanyard to kill the power as my air/fuel gauge will get stuck on 50.1 not sure why
