I quite like these; https://www.auberins.com/index.php?m...=index&cPath=5

Very good quality and well priced, they have all the sensors availabe to do anything you want and they all seem proper automotive quality. Probably not to everyones taste aesthetically though.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Bot quite what I'm after looks wise unfortunately. Any knowledge on wither saas or autermeter reliability?

Thanks again

Hey bods, I really like the triple pod set up. Do you find it obstructs your view much ?
I quite like the obd2 shows you quite a bit if information ! The fuel economy is quite handy aswell! Do you know if this all still worka with a switch in?

Boost and egt are autometer and have always been good. The oil pressure is a saas one and when the temperature is warm and the motor is shut off, the gauge sticks on 0 for quite a while. You need to press the button to change the backlogged colour and eventually it will come to life. Works well when it is working, comparable to pressures I have seen mentioned on the forum. I am thinking of replacing this with another autometer one, just trying to justify the cost difference.

An obd2 adaptor and torque app on an Android phone gives you quite a lot of information. The ecu doesn't report oil pressure or exhaust temp though, so you need gauges for that. It also doesn't have an actual boost sensor, so you won't get an accurate boost reading from the torque app. Other things though, like coolant temp, intake temp, etc work well. As does fuel rail pressure, fuel rate, etc. I have these all set up on mine as well as the gauges and find it a good combination.
Hey that's a bugger to hear about the Saas gauge! Nearly makes it useless in a sense... do you knoq if that's a common problem or a unlikely batch?

Nah, its one gauge one sensor unfortunately. Although you could use multiple sensors of the same type, eg multiple temp sensors on one and multiple pressure sensors on the other via a switch i guess.

Nah, the pod is good, doesn't obstruct any more than the snorkel on the other side. The only downside I find is the angle the gauges are on. The top one is OK, the second and third ones aren't really angled up enough for the seating position in the d22. Then again, I am fairly tall so that could have something to do with it.


I don't really know what you mean by that last bit. There are more sensors you can choose from, they are just the ones I wanted. There is a massive list to choose from. I just have a cheap $5 Bluetooth odb2 adaptor that I leave plugged in all the time. Never had a problem with it.

Not sure. It is only when it is really hot. When the weather is cooler or after going for a drive and getting back in not long after stopping it is fine. Not sure what it's deal is, but I'm pretty sure they are a deleted line, so don't like my chances of getting a replacement haha

Gotta go with autometer liquid filled gauges i reckon

I know they cost a bit more but you the set the little buggers up and they just work perfectly for ever
