Question Dp F5 switch mount ?

well I got my chip installed and it works great but I can't decide where to mount the switch. I don't have or want pillar gauges so I'm looking for ideas and/or pics. Loking for something kinda discreet, Thanks folks

i mounted mine to the right of the steering column, cant see it from the drivers side window and when in the seat its hard to see behind the wheel..
the main reason i put mine there was the ease of wiring right between the panels.

I haven't gotten gauges yet, trying to decide what i want and hoping I'll run across something new, I kinda like the edge monitor.

Cool, Let me show you a few pic's... First one cost me about $3000... second one cost me $8000...


Then a few choices on gauge mounts, Skip the edge crap or anything that plugs into your OBD port...

I have to agree, I know the gauges and pillar seem like alot of money for what you get but, it is just like and insurance policy. You may not ever need them but you'll be thankfull if you do. I've got the triple A-pillar and just bought the F5 switch mount for that. It looks and works great.
I would go that route. JMO

Well to be honest, the first one was a superchips on tow safe, running a post turbo pyro and a 1100 red line...


Second one was a hybrid injector not TQed down, burning thru the fuel o ring and flooding the piston with fuel... then me driving it that way for 30 miles to get somewhere with Cell service...

Thanks for the pics CSIPSD, the new gauges look awesome but the burnt pistons look like alot of suck. I'm just wanting to keep the look on the interior clean. How well does the gauge panel around your factory instruments fit ? any daytime pics? Thanks
