Default Turbosmart E-Boost Location in Camaros?

Where is a nice location for the E-Boost in camaros? You Firebird guys are lucky cause it fits snugly in the vent?
Does anyone have a pic of one installed?

Doesn't the steering wheel mount get in the way of your visibility of dash? I don't like the looks of it. I know the smaller e boost two will fit in a pillar guage pod that is where mine is going.

If you have the smaller Eboost 2 than a little grinding will get it into the pillar. that is where mine is

What did you use as a blank behind the gauge? I really like the look of your setup, blown SS.

I just bought a 60mm E-boost 2 in black face/silver trim ring. Setting mine in the middle A/C vent just like the Aerotech guage I did in my left vent using a real carbon fiber back-plate.












Blown SS,
Your EB-2 looks real good in the drivers left vent
MiaSSmaro98,
I don't think the A/C will hurt the guage too much if you don't run your stuff all the time. I rarely ever turn on the A/C, but the few times I've run the cold air on the Aerotech guage it seemed like it was fine.

I live in Texas, so I doubt it's much cooler here. I've been to West Palm, Daytona, Miami, Tampa a bunch of times and I will agree it does get hot, but I don't drive the car enough to ever really worry about the heat. It only comes out at night .
