well, as usual life gets in the way a bit.

I have no updates as the car hasnt left the garage... :(
there was quite a bit of wiring I needed to do, and that pushed everything back. but that is almost done and Im finally getting some free time.
So I will be working on it over christmas and new years
and will have some results then...

fingers crossed

UPDATE!

Postby cozmic512 » Tue Dec 22, 2009 3:46 pm

so after a first run and at low boost levels,
it appears the Koso gauge is reading the same boost pressure
as the greddy at 5, 7, and 8 psi.
it was a prelim run...
Unfortunately the greddy is bar and the koso is psi
so I had to do the conversion, but I am coming up
with the same #'s on both sides.
this is good news, and we'll see how it holds up and
what the relationship is at higher levels.

sorry it took so long. but we all know how that goes...
regards,
Cory

Great feedback. Did you just get boost or others as well?

I actually got a water temp for the I/C and egt too.
I like them so far. the egt gauge is dimmer than the others.
I think I may have it on a diff setting but I havent looked into that just yet.

I am going to order oil pressure and fuel pressure to finish out.

I will be buttoning up the interior between christmas and new years.
I am taking a little vacation to the garage.
but now that the car is running with the vipec, Im cleaning up wires
for the gauges, the EMS, H/E fans, I/C water pump
and hopefully putting back in the passenger seats...

so I will take pics of the interior going back together
and post them up...

It looks good. I like your console. Did you glass it yourself or modify your stock one? How are the lights on them?

Thanks. I actually cut out all the supports and just kept the outer ring of both pieces. Then I glassed over that and sanded it down. 3 sheets of glass and it was pretty rigid.
the first picture believe it or not the lights are on.
everything was switched on but you cant tell the lights are on
I guess because of the flash.
maybe Ill take a pic in the dark and see if that works.
but they look good, and go well with the stock dash I think.
not too bright at night, and white.
so for now Im happy with them.

Cory

hey CMS

sorry for the late reply. I havent looked in this section in awhile...
yes the gauges are working great. no issues, and the boost gauge is still accurate at 14 and 16 psi. or at least its the same as the greddy.
egt gauge is consistent and same with water temp.
I like them. and for the price its a much higher quality than expected.
and they go well with the interior. so I am very happy with them.
and I think Mike C. is pretty happy with his as well.
regards,
Cory

I thought I had put up photos of my install on this thread, but maybe I did it only on my car blog...? In any case, yes I'm driving around fine with my Koso Boost gauge. Being an electronic gauge, it does make a little bit of sound as it moves up and down one notch (it also means my car is very quiet if I can hear that, hahaha). Other than that, no issues here and it's accurate when I compare it against the numbers coming out of my AVC-R boost controller.

Never heard of this brand, but after some research they seem to have some nice setups for all in one type things.

Yes, at that time, only one guy in Canada was selling them through eBay... Not sure if that company has more distributors now... Maybe I should offer them through my website... :P
