looks good! you could always paint it to match later. they make spray cans of "vinyl".

you dont have to be going fast to get max boost. i hit max when holding in 1st and launching, but 6 or 7 is what a 3.8" pulley should be pushing. minus some loss depending on your exhaust mod.

also is that a crack on your windshield? i think under FL law you can get that fixed for free, with proper ins.

Jax- It wasn't hard at all to hook up, the hardest part of it was fishing the hose because the hose came all coiled up, so it didn't want to stay straight haha..

Mr. Riv- Yeah it was funny though, I was coming over this hill and just went wot to hit max and right as I do, this cop in the oncoming lane passes me, then just stops and sits there.. was pretty wierd.. yeah my windshield is cracked frown It was cracked when I bought the car, i'll have to look into getting it fixed through my insurance.

I've been against the idea of installing guages and speakers in the driver's door vent but really all the cold air comes out on the passenger side. The driver's side vents don't do diddly-squat, so why not replace them with something that does?

I'll have to go out and look to see what's on the passenger's side - I think they've got one or both holes plugged with a seperate climate control. Do I want the passenger turning the air down on their side where all the cool air comes out at? NO!! Maybe that stuff should come out too . . .

And that's my rant for this thread wink Mod away but keep your stuff where you can put it back to stock for the resale value.

I agree with Jack about not placing the gauge in the air vent, but not for the same reasons. I think the gauge looks good there... near stock even. But wait till you get in the car on a 95ºF day, after being outside for an hour. First thing I do is aim the lower door vent at my knee, and the upper one at my body. They blow cool air at you, and it can be a life saver. If the passenger side vents blow colder, then more power to them, but if your driver side is warm, you have a problem that needs fixed.

And passenger climate comfort control, it's a great feature. My girlfriend uses it every time she's in the car. Once I showed her that it really worked, she never complains to me about being too hot or cold. She uses the comfort control and the heated seats to set it her way. Again, if this isn't working right, something needs repaired.

For safety and functional reasons, I prefer pillar gauge mounting. Easy to return to stock look, too. Read more on this subject:

Faze boost/vac gauge pillar Boostcover

this doesn't look stock or anything but the fact of the matter is it isn't stock anyway so I see little reason to try to make it appear that way. Good thing is no comfort or resale factors are sacrificed and it is in a logical spot - with all the rest of the gauges.

I'll check the actuator module under the dash, but I don't think it's gone out on me. The compressor was replaced Thursday, and while the mechanic noted that the driver's vents weren't doing much, he thought it was typical for GM vehicles.

There is air blowing out, so I don't think there's blockage anywhere.

Any other ideas?

I have always thought about putting a small boost gauge in the top air vent on the door. IMO I don't really notice much air coming from the vents in the first place. I notice more coming from the center and passenger side. As long as you keep the bottom vent in place, you should still get around the same amount of air output from the vent.

It is pretty easy to remove the door panel. There are some instructions on this forum or the other. I think there is five screws to remove. One screw on each end of the door. Their are two torx screws behind the little covers on the handle. And there is a screw behind a cover next to the door handle and lock. Then you just lift up and pull towards you. Disconnect the wires and you should be able to see what needs to be done from there. Good luck getting the wires and vacuum tube through the door gromet. It is kind of hard to get to from the inside, but it can be done.

Is it the velocity of the air coming out, or is it the temperature of the air that's the problem?

Temp. Maybe the velocity is a little lower, I'm not sure. It's not the kind of difference the temp is.
