Custom gauge in a 997TT, sure why not.

What do you do when you have a dash of stock gauges that doesn’t lend its self to any space to do anything cool…As I love to say in other aspects of my life….create the space!! When I purchased my car it had to have the sport chrono in order to take advantage of the “sport” function Porsche offered. The 1850.00 upgrade not only included a more aggressive map, more boost, aggressive throttle response and a stiffer pasm program but it included this really cool gauge (not) in the middle of my dash. Just incase I live on a track I can keep up with my own time. Honestly I think the track slip is probably a better option but who am I to question Porsche’s thought process.

 

Factory gauge

We grouped up with a old buddy of mine who has started a gauge company called in your face gauges.  They specialize in many gauge application from Porsche to BMW and then some. We set up to do something in the 997TT that would set every other gauge into a boring category compared to this one. Understand that this is still under development but the base work is done on the gauge side. The function controls will eventually end up in the OEM computer stalk control or possibly the mirror control. Yes, both would remain functional with a toggle what would allow you to control the gauge and the proper OEM equipments.

This HD gauge is able to simply tap into the OBD2 port. In this case I have added not only all the available OBD2 data that is available through the plug, but we also added a boost module that takes its own source.  Other options for cars that do not have OBD2 like anything pre 96 you can add lots of stuff, as mentioned anything from boost to AFRs and then some.

The programming possibilities are endless with this setup. If you can’t find anything that you like in stock form you can also log into the company and actually request or down load a custom gauge faces! In addition to that you can have an analog setup, a plot setup, numbers, or your fancy custom gauge.

The unit we are using is a custom fit 52mm gauge that fit rather nicely in the stock sport chrono location….Nothing stays stock in my hands too long!
