I modified and ran a 97-02 3-gauge pillar pod for several years. It worked, but it looked like a hack job. Perhaps someone with better skills than mine could do better with it. I moved the gauges to the center console and I will never go to the pillar again.

You can certainly have a good installer mold 3 single pods into your existing pillar, but it will cost a little bit of money to make it look factory. I'm not a fan of just sticking them on the pillar. There are a bunch of choices, but I'm partial to DynoTune gauges






FYI: Call911, I like that shifter alot

Thanks. It was a totally custom job (obviously). I'll try to dig up the info. They were called "Rippy's shift *****" or something like that.

thanks guy for the info i bought the gauges and installed the A/F and Fuel Pressure gauge with the dual pillar today, just need to run the harnesses through the firewall.

Im waiting on an adapter for the fuel rail for the fuel pump, the gauge did not come with it??

Im going to the muffler shop tomorrow to weld up the buggie or whatever its called.

i dont have the SC yet so the boost gauge will sit on my shelf and ill add another single pillar when the time comes.

Okay, sorry for taking my sweet time on this. Here is the link to where I got my shift ****> http://www.ripps70.com/Page_1.html

Now, they have several to choose from, but I had them make me a custom one. I think I spent like $85 back in the day on it.

I have made a triple gauge pod for a 93-96 camaro HARDTOP that fits these years dashboards. In a few weeks I will be taking it out and selling it on ebay. The reason I don't need it is because I bought a 1997 camaro so I don't need it. Anyone interested let me know. First come first serve. It took me 2 months to get it right. It is not a hack job and will look very nice. It is painted flat black. Selling it for around 200 bucks because that is what it costed me to buy all the parts and supplies I needed to make this look perfect. 93-96 camaro HARD TOP only.

To install it just pop your A-piller out and put this one on and your done. After you put your gauges in and tuck the wires away it snaps into place just like your stock A-piller does and your done. It is already molded into one piece. First come first serve.
