get some fittings to move the sensing unit to a different angle or to move it furthur away ... wait i take it you installed an electrical gage? you can always go hard line to the unit

aloso i was wondering where i can mount the gauge in the car. i have it mounted under the radio back away from the cup holders. i was also thinking i can mount it where the big pannel is under the steering wheel. but still i cant see it either. if anyone has any ideas please let me know. also they said we can mount it in the change cubby i like that i dea but i dont seem to have the stuff to make it. i usually use whatever i got around the house. by the way this is a 99 contour. thanks

it's still gonna be in the way cause you got so much clearence between the fitting and the coil pack mount.
