    Based on the issues outlined in the cross post above I replaced my relays with heavy duty Hella waterproof relay set up.. They are much more robust than what I had before. I also wrapped them in insulation and moved them to a cooler spot in the engine bay.

    Here is my gauge cluster with new Speed but Gauges......this is the mock up fitting. Tommorow there will be a Carbon Fiber face laminated on with 3M super sticky super thin double sided adhesive. The same stuff used to assemble cell phones.

    I used my favorite trick of filling the pores of the wood with super glue and then sanding super smooth with 150 grit to ensure strong adhesion.

    Green =Coolant
    Red = Fuel Pressure
    Blue = Oil Pressure

    During the day the letters are the colors above but a little hard to see in the pics. they should "pop" more with the black background.

    Now if I could only find someone to 3D print it I could make it available to anyone with a 5th Gen console.

    Now off on a drive to see if I can get a good log file if my fuel injection going lean on a down hill run to send to Holley or EFI System Pro. Not sure if I can get the temp above 160* today to get it into learn mode...
