I bought an extra mirror from a member, but not needed. I just keep all my stock stuff, for some dumb ass reason. $40

http://www.radar-mirror.com/

Has all the goods. Took about 3 weeks, because the PLX screen is a little dimmer than the AEM setup, so they had to order a special mirror glass piece to make it work. Sent them my extra mirror, they sent it back with all the PLX goodies.

The mirror setup was right around $500, plus the 2 modules for boost and Afr were another $400 or so.

Not a cheap mod, but I really, really hate gauge pillar pods and everything else out there for our cars, so it's worth it to me.

Oh forgot to mention... When the gauge is off, you can't even tell anything is different with the mirror. Looks 100% stock. There's an extra wire that runs from the back of the mirror, through the headliner and down the a pillar, which connect to the guge module. Totally stealth.

Yes sir! Finally getting installed on the 18th. It's been sitting at the shop for awhile now, tempting and teasing me with its boost.

Ive been waiting until I had a gauge setup that I liked.

Yep! Picked it up from Nick (shardik) a couple months back for a great price, and I've been un-patiently waiting to install it. :woot:

Thanks J! After being in the little sun today, I'll definitely need to change the colors of the text. Can't see the red worth a damn.

And I hope it's my temp power rig up that is causing the radio noise.

Ok, got everything permanently mounted and got to play with some settings. I've got a tech support ticket in to change the colors for the obd2 screen, cause red is awful to see in the sunlight. Their directions SUCK.

But I got the module screens to change!! Black and white and grey for now. Gotta play with the colors in daylight to see what is visible.



Now I just need to make that gauge move UP!! Lol 11 days.

Will just need to run the hose for the boost and the O2 sensor for the afr. And everything will be wrapped up... Gonna do those during whipple install.

Uh oh, got a snafu.... Whenever the modules are powered up, I get tons of noise on the radio, even engine off. Damnit. Looks like I'll need to reroute everything to somewhere else... Just not sure where yet.

I have that same issue... I think I'll try a shielded wire... If I have time I'll do it at the house and let you know how it worked out...

I think I have enough room to run everything to the passenger side and put it in the glove box, but I don't really want to loose the storage space. Might just ignore it for a bit.

And if I don't get my crank pulley pin kit from whipple, looks like that will be delay also. Grrrrrr
