    I have many times. You see the problem is those gauges are just that a gauge. You need a ecm or something to read the nock sensor and relay it to the gauge. So if you don't have a computer controlled engine then how do you add one? I know J&L make a hole system but it is expensive. I guess I need to contact Casper.

    Correct, in general the PCM outputs the knock signal.

    If you are asking can we build a knock gauge? Sure we can custom build anything you like. All we need to know id the input signal and what you want the gauge to say.

    For those of you who are wondering about a Pontiac package; I dropped off that dash on Friday, so the guys at NVU are on it! It was really cool to meet Mike and the gang at NVU. They're great people and have a really cool operation going. I'm looking forward to receiving a kick a*s set of gauges.

    Heres one for you guys to think about, a vacuum gauge for our cars. Something universal that could mount in the dash like it kinda was ment to be. Graphics that could match the O.E. Even a boost gauge for our turbo friends.

    Kind of like the old Economy-Performance gauges that some of the old Buicks had.
