      Thanks bill but I've decided that I'm just gonna spring for the whole kit and kaboodle.

      http://podi.ca/P1Packages.aspx?CarID=9

      For clarity sake before I order, the first package listed on the link provided is the one I need correct?

      I know it's the mkv5 pod. I guess my question is if this white/red gauge is the mkv6 gauge. And will the figments and tubes all be the same. Or do I need to call and customize my order?

      So I have some free time today and tomorrow and I'm thinking about tackling this.

      This job kind of looks like a huge pita....not as simple as the new south install.

      I will be watching patiently, as I may have to go this route once I get to stage 2... not looking forward to shelling out the $$ for this.

      I had this issue with the New South Pod and a Prosport gauge, so I modified it. It`s not looking nice. Long story short, I`m going for the Podi when they`ve made the modification for the B6/CC.
      Anyone for the dual gauge pod?

      Wait... so they are going to make a B6/CC specific pod?

      I'm talking right now to a guy who does Carbon Fiber custom work (actually looking at having my BSH air intake-tray thing made out of all CF) maybe there is a custom pod that can be moulded onto the OEM column or something...

      You may be waiting for a while as the modifications, as simple as they look, are difficult to do on the mold and it is a non reversible decision.

      if you guys don't want to do the modding yourself, I'll do it for free. You just have to pay shipping from me to you.

      So i got my podi gauge installed by my guy at the dealer and thus far im less than enthused. Maybe you guys with the gauges can chime in;

      1. Is the sending unit supposed to sound like a damn boost leak? My guy told me that its supposed to be placed away from heat, and thus he deemed it appropriate to install it underneath the dash and not in the engine bay. Everytime i get into boost i hear a loud hissing sound from inside the cabin now. Is this sending unit supposed to make noise like this? If it is ill have it moved into the engine bay.

      2. Why the hell is this, and i quote; "Anti reflective coated glass" so opaque? When i think AR coating im thinking my breitling or high end tag where the crystal seems to disappear. This doesnt even come close. I understand its glass and not saphire but it just seems really opaque to me (even after i took the glass out of the gauge and wiped it down inside and out with a microfiber cloth), you can tell a huge difference in translucence between the factory gauges and this pod, and the factory gauges aren't much to be proud of either--as far as throwing reflections. Take a look at these pics;

      Gauge without glass


      Glass


      Glass installed into gauge (i mean look at the difference of clarity between the factory gauges and podi, even on the part below where the podi is reflecting you can see that its nowhere as clear). I mean it almost looks as if there is like one of those protective pieces of plastic on the glass lens but i couldnt flake anything off of it. Is this what everyones looks like?


      3. Readings. Just want to compare to make sure i dont have any leaks or issues. From what i understand you are supposed to see -20inHg at idle and bit more when rolling under vaccum in gear. I am seeing -20inHG when in park at idle with AC off. If i cycle the A/C on im seeing between -17-18inHG (i think thats normal as you are applying a load with the compressor onto the crank through the belt drive, right?). When i am in Drive i am also seeing around -17-18inHG and maybe even as low as -16 when in drive, idling, w/ AC on. When rolling to a stop in gear i am seeing around -22-23inHg What are your readings like chaps?

      Vacuum in park (idle) A/C off


      Vacuum in park A/C ON


      4. Zero'ing of the gauge. My gauge doesn't seem to zero when i am in ACC before i fire her up. It seems to be just north of 0. I am anal as fack about things like this, and this drives me nuts.


      5. Overboost alarm. Am i a complete idiot or do the instructions show a different key combo than what is displayed on the remote? It shows to press the 'turbo' button and then 'FP' to set the overboost alarm, but where the hell is 'FP' on the remote? Am i blind or stupid?



      All in all if i could get these 5 issues resolved i'd think i'd be a happy camper. If anyone would like to chime in i would more than grateful (especially if someone from podi sees this and would like to help me w the issues). As it stands now im not too pleased for the $250 spent.

      I've not heard of that method. Usually some law against engine vapors in the cabin so the sending unit has to be in the engine bay.
      A loving welcome from TCL

      1. Is the sending unit supposed to sound like a damn boost leak? My guy told me that its supposed to be placed away from heat, and thus he deemed it appropriate to install it underneath the dash and not in the engine bay.

      My sending unit is also installed under the dash. I don't have any loud hissing, maybe the hose is loose.

      2. Why the hell is this, and i quote; "Anti reflective coated glass" so opaque? When i think AR coating im thinking my breitling or high end tag where the crystal seems to disappear. This doesnt even come close. I understand its glass and not saphire but it just seems really opaque to me (even after i took the glass out of the gauge and wiped it down inside and out with a microfiber cloth), you can tell a huge difference in translucence between the factory gauges and this pod, and the factory gauges aren't much to be proud of either--as far as throwing reflections. Take a look at these pics;

      Glass installed into gauge (i mean look at the difference of clarity between the factory gauges and podi, even on the part below where the podi is reflecting you can see that its nowhere as clear). I mean it almost looks as if there is like one of those protective pieces of plastic on the glass lens but i couldnt flake anything off of it. Is this what everyones looks like?

      Yes mine has glare also, doesn't really bother me.

      3. Readings. Just want to compare to make sure i dont have any leaks or issues. From what i understand you are supposed to see -20inHg at idle and bit more when rolling under vaccum in gear. I am seeing -20inHG when in park at idle with AC off. If i cycle the A/C on im seeing between -17-18inHG (i think thats normal as you are applying a load with the compressor onto the crank through the belt drive, right?). When i am in Drive i am also seeing around -17-18inHG and maybe even as low as -16 when in drive, idling, w/ AC on. When rolling to a stop in gear i am seeing around -22-23inHg What are your readings like chaps?

      I'm reading -21 at idle & -17 to -18 with the A/C on


      4. Zero'ing of the gauge. My gauge doesn't seem to zero when i am in ACC before i fire her up. It seems to be just north of 0. I am anal as fack about things like this, and this drives me nuts.

      Mine zeros right at "0". maybe it has something to do with perhaps the hose is loose at the sender

      5. Overboost alarm. Am i a complete idiot or do the instructions show a different key combo than what is displayed on the remote? It shows to press the 'turbo' button and then 'FP' to set the overboost alarm, but where the hell is 'FP' on the remote? Am i blind or stupid?

      Not sure on this one. I set mine, but don't remember which button worked.

      All in all if i could get these 5 issues resolved i'd think i'd be a happy camper. If anyone would like to chime in i would more than grateful (especially if someone from podi sees this and would like to help me w the issues). As it stands now im not too pleased for the $250 spent.

      Ok well, i'll tell you one thing podi definitely gets an A+ for customer service. I called in and they didnt hesitate to answer any questions. They said mounting the sending unit inside the cabin is perfectly acceptable and that it shouldn't be making any noise. We definitely have a leak somewhere. Also the reason its not zero'ing out may be due to a bad ground, so im going to have my installer check the grounds and make sure the surface is clean and sanded to bare metal. On the issue of the opaqueness they said it's supposed to be like that and that its due to the anti-glare coating that the glass looks opaque like that from some angles---hmmm... i may just get a custom piece of glass and have it Anti reflective coated on both sides to remedy this problem. Last, to set the overboost alarm you press the 'WN' button if you dont have the 'FP' on your remote. Apparently they have started shipping new remotes but havent updated the instructions. Hopefully i can get the mechanical issues resolved tomorrow.

      If you are hearing a hissing then there is a leak in the vacuum line somewhere.

      The sender is supposed to be located away from a heat source and can be installed in the cabin, please ensure you have the inline filter installed to protect the boost sender from airborne contaminants which will accumulate in the line as shown



      You can see how I have it installed in the picture below.



      The AR coating on the lens did make it slightly cloudy, but it is better than having an uncoated glass lens which would be totally unreadable under certain lighting conditions. If you wanted a clear uncoated glass lens I could dig one up in my office and send it to you.

      If you disconnect the vacuum line from the boost sender, key the car on the gauge should do its calibration sweep and then rest at zero. If it does not and you are not located below sea level or high up in the mountains then I ask that you check your ground locations.

      If possible use the same ground and power points for both the sender and the gauge. You can see how I wire up the harness and sender here, I also tuck them both behind the knee bolster



      The old remote controls had the button labeled F/P, the new version have the button label W/N

      Let me know what you find when you check your setup and let me know if the issues go away.

      @ MC Hammered

      Thanks for the support man. So we got the leak fixed today we put a clamp on the sender's boost line and everything is quiet now. We also moved the grounds to somewhere with bare metal and i set the overboost alarm at 22psi. Everything seems to work perfect, i am consistently hitting 22psi and holding strong vacuum (-20-21inHg) at idle with the A/C off. After rolling around with this gauge for a day im really starting to love it more and more, its a very quality piece after i ironed out all the installation kinks. I really like how well the lighting matches the factory cluster, its spot on.

      The only thing i can complain about is we still havent been able to get the gauge to zero out properly on ACC start-up sweep. I am still seeing just a hair above zero just like with the previous pics (this is after relocating the grounds). If i could get that worked out i'd be in total bliss

      I need you to disconnect the vacuum line from the boost sender and key the car on, if the needle still registers above/below zero then you can try carefully adjusting the sender using the following information:

      just to be clear, this is "V1", that i am supposed to adjust while in ACC until i am zero'd (with the vac line disconnected)?

      If you have a green PCB that would be the one.

      If you have a tan PCB it would be the adjuster with VR1 label underneath it.

      Make sure you ground yourself before making any adjustments to discharge any static electricity, the adjustment screw will be very sensitive so a tiny change with the screwdriver is all that may be required.
