If you notice you can see when it starts to spin and I let out of it for a little bit. Don't blink or you will miss the video.

Hey Julian, is that the steering column-mounted gauge pod? If so, how much did you pay for it? I heard that it gets in the way if you want to tilt your steering wheel...in other words, give us the details on it.

The exhaust probably sounds good from the cam. Here is another video with more idle there. video 2 (http://www.public.iastate.edu/~julian/run1.AVI) But the setup is Wynn's downtubes, no cats to a magnaflow resonator to 3" back to dual 2.5 dynomax superturbos. It is nice and REAL deep. There is resonance at highway since I removed the cats.

Ya, it is a steer gauge pod from summit for a rustang. You need to cut the back off of it to fit, so it is not for a show car. You can see a little of the gauge coming out the back, but still looks ok. Full tilt available. The pod was only 20 or 30 bills. I may glass the back in to clean up the look a little. Maybe I will get some still photos up tonight so you can see what I mean. You need to have a 94-95 to use it though.

edit: the pod does land in the perferct spot right under the tach from the drivers perspective. Doesn't cover up anything important.

I love this car,
Cheers

David N. and others said that I should be safe. There are enough miles on the motor now it is broken in so I'm going to have a little fun. I just won't do a 5 min WOT topspeed run until it gets tuned. :p

Great man...looking to see those pix of the column pod.

Yeah you're right, I guess you do have quite a few miles on it already. Is your computer programmed to give you a richer mixture up top until you get it tuned?

If anyone wants to spend a bunch of cash for a guage, get a Turbonetics guage and pressure switch. I got one for the TC, and the green pretty much matches the stock dash. I have the pressure switch set to 19 PSI, and when it hits, the backlit green numbers turn amber. Or......you can set it backwards to be amber and turn green when the switch trips.

ONLY about $100 for guage and $50 for switch. Hey......it's for a my turbo Tbird so I said "F" it. If anyone wants pics, say so and I'll take some. :D

I was thinking I'd get a popoff valve for my turbo setup so if there were to be some kind of boost spike, I wouldn't have to worry about blowing something up.

The second pic didn't turn out. The color is much closer than it shows. But it may not be for everyone.
