I bought an intrument cluster from an 04 Mazda6 to try and fabricate an integrated boost gauge, and wanted to see what the smallest boost gauge looks like. I've only seen boost gauges that are about 3" wide, but I'm hoping there's something even smaller.

My thought was to gut a boost gauge and insert it in between the speedometer & tack (slightly below where there's a blank spot) I was thinking I could use a needle from the gas or temp gauge to make it look like it's OEM.

This may be a half baked idea, but I would rather prove to myself that it can't be done than not try at all.

G/L but sounds like a waste of $$ unless u can get the parts cheap/free :) Are you just aiming for factory look?

check out the VEI gauge GB in the group buy section.

They are the typical width. But if you think depth maybe an issue which it tends to be with gauges check this out:

The VEI gauge was known for being ridiculously thin before, now it's even thinner. It's the one too the right. If you dont mind fooling with electronics you can get this to work depth wise. That's if you don't mind digital.
