I did that setup a couple years ago. My pod was a freebie from someone else's project that changed plans, so he gave me the pod. It goes all the way up to the top of the A pillar. I could of shortened it, but I liked the way it is secured by the grab handle. I run an EGT and a combo vacuum/boost gauge. Vac tells you how hard your pushing the motor when your NOT in boost.
I did not try to fish the wires up thru the A pillar to hide them. I found that I could carefully slide them back between the side of the dash and the A pillar. Either way will work. Mine are completely covered/captured by the lower section of the pod. John

just run a vacuum line from the gauge to the intake manifold. I bought a 1/8" BSPT - 4mm hose barb that I plan to replace the 1/8" BSPT plug used to eliminate the brake boost nipple on the back side of the intake.

Im having no luck finding where it plugs into intake.

I have an Integra pod and it is not like that one. Does the Australian company build LHD pods? That seems a bit odd.
4x4 concepts makes a LHD 2 and 3 gauge pod. Reviews are not the best on here from the few i've seen that had them but it's one of the best options out there. Definitely weird an Australian company makes a LHD pod.
The issue i have with pulling the trigger is that they're like 150+ bucks, and you lose the grab handle.

The grab handle is present in his photo. Therefore the pod must be none of the above. Perhaps Cruzilla will see fit to enlighten us.
