are those Defis? I'm trying to figure out how to setup the exact same gauges in my car...

I may buy the GD triple pod and cut a hole in my dash for it to go into.

Your best bet will be individual mounting cups for the gauges. They'll offer the most options for mounting location, direction and angle. This is evident in the photo posted by jonGF8.

Or, if you are handy with plywood, fiber and resin, you could probably mold your own piece to be placed in the dash.

how exactly did you go about mounting those ones there... i was thinking about it.. only downfall is they are down low and not convient to look at when your banging through the gears or under boost... (which was kinda why i bought the boost gauge)

those that are mounted there are fluid gauges (oil press, oil temp, water temp). my air gauges (boost, egt,...and air/fuel) will be on my a-pillar and gauge cluster. i'll only look down at the fluid gauges when something goes wrong related to those gauges. but putting the '98-01' dash cowl on our dash' is something out of the ordinary and also not very easy.
