PLX Gauges?

yeah I noticed its all one piece, I will probably just disassemble the gauges with the dash intact and try and do it that way.

If you do and find a way without breaking them document it and share.
I would love to find a way to get into the gauges without tearing out the dash, good DIY project so I can add some better gauges to the car.

I already got the turbo installed last week, plan on doing the gauge install over the winter here. I am planning on at minimum

Boost, AFR, and should do oil pressure. I would possibly like to add a EGT gauge as well.

They don't already have the touch gauge out on the market? Looking at their website I had assumed it was already released. I remember seeing their booth at SEMA last year and being impressed with them (although at the time I had no desire to get one of them).

I would assume that the OBD gauge could pull the stock oil temp info from the ECU, if thats the case I will probably just leave it as is. I got a pretty good oil cooler on it now.

I think they have two different touch-enabled sensors on the market per their website. Unfortunately, the newer one appears to lack the ring of LEDs.

That sucks, I liked the ring of LED's on them. When the time gets a bit closer I will give them a call and see what they have to say for what I want to do. Still gotta recuperate from the FI kit costs, haha.

I have AFR and vac/boost PLX sensors with the PLX multitouch gauges, I plan on getting another AFR, oil pressure, and fuel pressure in the future. Next step is replacing the gauges with a custom computer/LCD for the cubby to do data logging.

How do you like the EVC-S? I'm trying to decide between the EVC-S and the EVC-6.
