Guages to Big for Pod??????

My bro just got an xcal-3 and a set of gauges from Elite and the gauges don't seem to fit the pod. The bolts behind the gauges hit the back of the pod and the bracket to hold the gauges is to big around and doesn't fit in the space. Is it the wrong pod or what???? Thanks

Sometimes they are a tight fit and you can work at the pod holes with some sandpaper or something till they fit... but keep em snug. If you use the bracket you WILL have to make holes in the original pillar to make room. Alot of people dont use the brackets because the gauges fit nice and snug into the holes.

Hope this helps... recently installed some so let me know if you have anymore questions.
