Cravenspeed Tundra Gen2 Flex pod with Prosport Gauges EVO series Boost and AFR
I always Like lights and Gauges and such. I knew I was going to supercharge her. So two Gauges I found important to have was the Boost gauge and an Air Fuel Ratio gauge.
I ordered the Cravenspeed Flex pod for an 07 Tundra. Awesome decision. This was a must since the market didn't offer a gauge pillar. But If you see my other photos on my page, you'll see had a pillar custom made.

I shopped around for months for the style of gauges I wanted. I wanted red gauges or as close to amber I could get and I want digital. I've had analog before on my 1988 supercharged MR2 and it looks cheap. I own a Tundra, so it has to look OEM. That's just my opinion though.
So I found Prosport Gauges EVO series and they had what I wanted. After months of referring back to them I decided to buy them. I'm so glad I did too. Wouldn't you agree?
First was the install of the Flex pod. Very simple to do. Turn the truck on, turn the wheel until you see the screw. Remove the screw. On mine, I originally had factory black screws but the flex pod kit came with silver, so that's what I used. I did this on both sides and install the Flex pod and screw it in. Very easy.
However, this I didn't plan on. My EVO Gauges have about 1/4" of glass that stick forward of the flexpod. Basically I can't turn the steering wheel without destroying the face of the gauge. A decision had to be made.
Luckily, I found a local parts store and bought two 1/2" spacers (white spacers). This allowed for the gauge to set further back and not interfere with the operation of the steering wheel. Problem solved.
The wiring process was pretty easy. I actually ran it to the fuse box and didn't cut into any wires. I did the install in the parking lot of my hotel. Lol
The bung was welded on by a mufflershop for $30 cash. I wired up the sensor to the gauge and now I get a reading on the AFR gauge. 14.1-14.5 is normal at idle or normal driving. 10.2 is my lowest and that's with a wide open throttle (WOT).
Boost gauge reading had to wait until I purchased the supercharger. I did install ithe gauge because I didn't want to drive around looking like Nemo, (Finding Nemo, with short fin), the Flex pod missing a gauge. Haha. However, a year later, the supercharger was installed.
Everyday I drive my Tundra, this is what welcomes me when I get behind the wheel. Exciting!!!
If you're curious what my max boost is.... 9psi on a stock pulley. This is a very powerful truck.
