What pod? Are you planning to drill the dash or run the wires thru the defrost vents?

I am installing a dash pod from Shelby this Saturday for a customer. If the instructions are accurate, I don't think it will be a big deal. They lead me to believe that there is a void between the winshield and the dash pad that will allow snaking the harness through without drilling. I will let you know how it goes.

I have the same pod,the void that they talk about you have to be a Magician to get the wires through.I ended with drilling a 1/2" hole on the dashboard,don't worry ,you can't see it it's under the pod.Good luck if you try it.

for a/f...you gotta cut into your exhaust BEFORE your cats. weld a bung in, and connect the sensor. any exhaust shop should know how to do it. for a fuel pressure guage...go electric unless u want your car to smell like gas. boost guage...splice into a vaccum line. run power to everything....run your wires through your firewall, up your dash...and connect to the guages. from my understanding, i think thats about it

What is a park bark? LOL!!

I'd say an exhaust shop would charge >$100 for something that simple.

We are looking at about 250.00 to install this unit, it has fuel pressure(electronic) oil pressure, boost. The void isn't tough to access, I twisted safety wire and left a loop and all of the pulled through with little effort with a second set of hands assisting. I am not quite done as the fuel rail pressure sensor relocation kit from Whipple didn't arrive Friday. The only thing I and the customer didn't care for, was about 2 1/2"s of wiring visible behind the pod. We both felt we were the only ones who would notice you have to be looking for it to see it.
