Our latest dash vent gauge pod incorporates an ABS plastic gauge pod (available in single only configuration) that is hand molded onto the original dash vent piece. We take a Volvo dash vent unit and handmold a gauge pod onto it (you may use a 52mm mechanical or electronic boost gauge, air/fuel meter gauge, etc.), and then repaint the new entire piece in a black finish to achieve that "near-OEM" gauge mounting solution!
The design of this gauge pod does not interfere w the Inflatable Curtain (IC) airbags, yet allows you to have the gauge directly within your line of sight while viewing the road. The way this gauge pod is molded, the small upper vent is blocked. This has not caused any issues whatsoever in the operation of the vehicle.
Due to space limitations within the gauge pod, certain mechanical gauges may be too deep and cause the gauge face to not be seated flush. If a mechanical gauge must be used, we recommend cutting the two threaded rods on the back, and using a 90-degree vacuum line elbow connector on the gauge. Otherwise, we recommend using an electronic gauge type for best fitment.
**Note: A $70 core charge is included in the above price. The core charge will be refunded back to the customer upon return of the original Dash Vent. The returned core must be returned within 14 days of receiving the item. It must also be free of any damage and all the mounting clips must be intact. If your core is not able to be used, we will email you directly. Please Contact Us for details on sending the original core back to ViVA Performance.
