    That's the only place I can see that do a fascia, you'd need to blank off the other two holes though unless you put in an oil temp and errrm something else guage

    I've had that gauge kit bookmarked for a bit now, it's pricey at $300 plus shipping, but looks quality. The one issue I'd have with a boost gauge down there is that boost is something that varies so quickly (oil temp / pressure / volts aren't (hopefully)), you want to keep your eye on it - so it's in the wrong position for that.

    I'm sure I've seen a kit to mount a 52mm gauge in the RHS air vent... let me see if I can find it...
