My boost gauge, AFR gauge. and oil press. gauge are mounted on my pillar and they are very easy to monitor during WOT on the pillar. I am using the 3-pod pillar gauge bezel from auto meter. The finish and fit on it was nice and it looks great.

The outside gauges on a car that's driven through the weather always end up looking like crap IMO.

For me anyway, things are happening pretty fast at wot. You can watch the boost pretty easy. But watching two things at once is harder.

I never think to look at my boost gauge going down the track, but it's on my A-pillar.
