CD holder location might not be large enough to clear the bezels on standard size gauges. Maybe someone can verify if this is the case. It could still be done, but would likely require some customization to the trim.

I have been waiting to see a boost gauge installation in the the cd holder location, so far all I have been able to find is window pillar, door air vent, steering column and ashtray... has anyone done this? I dont like to be the first especially where there are cheap little plastic clips involved.

Why? You would have to cut that whole section off and add a Bezel to house the gauges. Alot more work, plus the gauge location is even lower restricting your view. The gauges in my picture are 2 1/16". Not sure they would fit. The ashtray is ideal IMHO, unless of course you are a smoker.

You're right Larry - Your install looks good! I never use the CD tray but realized just yesterday that with a milkshake in the cupholder view would be further obstructed...not a smoker, ashtray is for toll money but may be time for EZ pass.

Wow, that Aeroforce Interceptor is really a neat product, and a good price at around $250 for what I've seen of it online.

I know you probably don't know this answer, but I wonder if it would work on the OBD "1.5" that the 1995's use. I guess I'd have to ask them.

Very cool.

The Aeroforce is a great product, worth every dollar. Unfortunately, I'm almost sure it won't work with OBD1.5. More reading here (I think the question is asked):

Has anyone found a particular style gauge series that is a close match to the look of the stock instruments?

....or one that is modifiable to match, such as being able to access the needle and paint it white?

I like the drivers door panel location for two reasons:  aesthetic, and it sounds like it may boost the air velocity of the remaning vent, which is somewhat weak with both vents.

I think most gauges feature a threaded lens, like a filter on a camera. This would let you not only paint the needle, but also install a Riviera themed background insert. I've done this with my Aeroforce gauge, using the typeface "Eurostyle" to match the factory dash lettering:

I personally think mine is pretty close. I looked all over and couldn't find one closer to the original style that I liked. I just wish I could have found one with a close to matching needle.

What make/model gauge did you end up using?

Apologies if it is already posted in this thread, but I browsed through all 18 pages and didn't find it or in your sig.

Thanks

I think it was moved to the pillar gauge thread. Here's the link to the thread that it would be in. Let me know if you are wanting more information.

Thanks, the A-pillar install looks very clean.

I looked through that thread though, and couldn't find where you identified the make/model of the gauge. I did see the photo, but it is pretty low resolution so couldn't make out the gauge make.

Do you recall if that gauge bezel and lens comes off so one could paint the needle without major surgery?

Thanks again.

I was using my old camera then, lol. The gauges came assembled as a whole. I'm not sure if you can take the lens off of those or not. They are both Autometer gauges. Boost gauge is part # 2614 Z-series 2". The oil pressure gauge should be the same Z-series and 2" like the boost gauge with a range of 0-100. I do not have the part number for the oil gauge though. Hope that helps.

The Sunpro gauge used in the write up looks very good, and is a good low cost choice:  CP8213

http://www.jegs.com/i/Sunpro/885/CP8213/10002/-1

The only downside I see to this gauge is that needle is not lit, but it is a very clean looking option.



Here is an assortment of Auto Meter gauges that based on some quick research I think also are good candidates to match or coordinate well with the Riviera interior and stock gauges (in no particular order).  These are all 2 1/16" sized gauges the the write-up shows as a fit for the door panel vent placement.

Auto Meter 8404 - These are interesting, as they have a similar look as our stock gauges, both in numeral style and pointer/hub construction.  And they are backlit green.  They were designed to mimic Ford OEM gauges.

http://www.jegs.com/i/Auto-Meter/105/8404/10002/-1


Following is a good photo set of them installed and lit:

This is the Autometer gauge I used. I just installed the green cover on the back lighting to closer match the Riv's lighting.

One of the vents in the door. I would do the top one since it usually blows into my eye no matter how I have it oriented.

It will just keep the gauge cooler, and the left side of the car will be a little warmer. You wont short anything if you wire it correctly.

16.9 LTFT, if it's (+), means your PCM is maxed out adding fuel to correct a serious lean condition, or it thinks there's a lean condition. A faulty or dirty MAF sensor could cause this. I would not go WOT until you figure this out.

The -22 spark timing means 22º before TDC, which is fine. This number will change a lot depending on how you drive. Should be -25 to -35 on the highway, around -26 when you're cruising around, and between -10 and -15 at WOT.
