Nothing wrong with that. Makes the car look so much more aggressive. One of the reasons why I bought mine.

Good, people are idiots getting their cars tuned and then dumping them off on unsuspecting buyers when they mess something up and know the motor is on borrowed time. Case in point, the previous owner of the car I just bought. Guarantee the guy before him hurt the motor and sold it to him knowing it was going to blow.

And yeah if the previous owner didn't have some aftermarket gauges ESPECIALLY a wideband... um... hopefully there is a wideband. If not they are pretty cheap these days. I paid $140 for a good one new from Amazon. Definitely required for a car like this and it just looks cool too.

Its too bad the shelby front conversion is $2000 and there is no fix for that smiling grille on the Shelby. The Roush looks great too and so does just a simple stock frowny grille with a CDC lip. This car that Recon has is badass looking.

Nope, there isn't any gauges at all, but i had the dealership get it retuned and i need to bring it back monday for the people who tuned it to inspect it again, is there any good deals on gauge pillar, boost gauge and the wideband? I'd really like to get them as soon as possible

Ok so it has the Roush rear valance. Pretty wicked looking car. You might look into getting a billet grill, I did. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Literally the best picture I have of actually seeing the grill. For some reason it doesn't show up well in pictures, grill is hidden in the shadow, of the hood. Trust me it looks great in person.
Thanks Scotty, I'm very happy with the car.

It also improves air inlet by 60% over the stock grill. Car runs cooler, it's a visible change on the temp gauge.

I bought this one.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ND6JMES/...ing=UTF8&psc=1

Comes with the Bosch sensor and a wideband bung too. They come in all different colors and black face too if you'd prefer the black gauge.

Oof no gauges... that's like flying blind. Or whacking off with a noose around your neck and no spotter...

I bought this one.

Amazon.com: APSX D2 Digital Wideband O2 Air Fuel Ratio Controller All-in-One 2 1/16" (52mm) Gauge - White Faceplate (Blue): Automotive

Comes with the Bosch sensor and a wideband bung too. They come in all different colors and black face too if you'd prefer the black gauge.

Also for way better prices than autometer and gauges that are just as good (and customizable) hit up these guys.

Wideband needs it's own bung. I had a 5th bung for it welded into my mid pipe. Drivers side.

And to the people saying not in the longtube... why not? They have O2 bungs in them anyway, just put a second bung in front of the one already there on the driver's side header.

It's better to plug it as closest to the upstream as posable you can buy a fitting and have it welded in

The gauge I linked to that I got comes with a bung already. $20 to have any shop weld it in. Make damn sure they put it in the driver's side tho and as far upstream as they can get it without the sensor banging into something on the underside of the car.

And a cap for the bung so you dont have an exhaust leak until you install the gauge.

You just install the sensor and tie off the plug somewhere for the drive home.
