    I've got one in mine. It doesn't really stay consistent enough to be able to tune the motor. It is mainly for looks.

    I really like the way you sank the gauges into the foam, I did something very similar to that only in the trim piece just below that. Check it out:

    That looks good. I was going to do that originally but I found a build thread somewhere on putting them into where I did it. I figured what the hell. I really liked the way it turned out. The only problem is that there wasn't enough room to put the brackets behind them so it doesn't suck them all the way into the dash.
