your 04 gauges are awsome looking but the fact that they give you water temp and fuel kinda sucks...

So the new pod would fit correctly on the column. I bought a new one from the dealer so I still have one to replace it with if I want to take the pod off down the road.

Yea you would have to cut the hole out for the auto shifter if you wanted to do it. I got it all wired up today and will make a new post about it later.

is there enough room to mod the pod for an automatic or would it require chewing up the pod to the "useless" point?
