yeah, but if you look in there, you can buy a double pod one and still keep the shit handle there.

The lotek ones have a problem where they tend to start warping after a while. I've seen a few that has that problem.

Everyone else makes it for the right hand drive non us Supras.

yah... they are usually pretty lenient about posting other stores in the mk3 section, since not many on here cater to us... but supra store is a no no.

Anyways Lotek pillars suck imo, they are angled out so much that its almost as easy to read them outside the car as it is inside and they do warp quite a bit... too bad theres not really anyone that makes a decent pod for us. That Roy guy on sm made a great looking pod, but now i dont trust him, dr jonez has been waiting for his center console from him for 8 months i think it is.

As far as gauges, i would do it in this order:

1. Boost
2. EGT
3. Oil temp
4. Oil pressure
5. Water temp
6. i wouldnt waste my time with any others, a volt gauge can be put in place of the stock boost gauge from an N/A car.

Note: obviously you want to throw a wibeband in there somewhere if your up to that point.
