I tried to search the forum, but couldn't find anything. I would many hits & not really realated to onboard air. I getting the New Auto Meter Pod for my TJ & am trying to come up with two gauges to install. One I though could be onboard air. Only thing is I don't have onboard air & was looking to see how difficult it would be to install, but found nothing. So...anyone have any suggestions?

I also have a second question. What would be another good gauge to install? Actually is there something that you can think of that would be better than the onboard air?

Not sure exactly what you meant. Your post was a little difficult for me to understand.

Another option for on board air is the power tank or similar set up.

I hear Auto Meter stinks ya tool . Wink
Too bad the gauge pod would take away my change tray. They need to make a full replcement dash kit. On-board air would be cool for your Jeep though...mine too for that matter.

Yeah...I mumbled as I tried to write it quickly and then didn't proof read Confused

I was asking how people have installed onboard air. I did a search of the forum, but could not find anything as I got so many hits that did not apply I just gave up.

As for the second gauge, got any suggestions on what to add that would be helpful? I can't think of anything.

And change trays are for sissies. They are only good if you are going on level enough ground that everything doesn't roll out of it when going up or down a hill - Yeah...Double Tool tool tool

My order of preferance:
Fuel PSI
Boost (if application applies)
Trannie Temp
Oil PSI
Oil Temp
Vacuum

I too bought a dual gauge pod holder for the A-pillar, mine will hold fuel PSI and a boost gauge, now I just gotta wait another year, pay off the Jeep and get that dang supercharger! Ugh...I hate waiting. Mean while, I'll be putting on a new hood (to clear the SC), finally install my OME lift, and get Bullet Proof bumpers...Just Empty Every Pocket is right on the money!

Here's what my pod looks like:

For the other gage, if you have an automatic trans and do hard core stuff, I'd go with a tans temp gage, or if you want real accurate speedo, get a GPS speedo from Auto Meter.

Kenne Belle makes a 4.0L Jeep Wrangler specific SC.
http://www.kennebell.net/superchargers/dodge/wrangler40/wrangler40.htm

It's a twin screw design, I'll be using the 5.5lb unit. I should see an increase ~50% in power...more info is on the site I gave above. This will be my first experience with a twin screw blower, I've done turbos and N2O in the past...so I'm looking forward to it Smile

In this months JP magazine (April 06) they have an artilal on the Max air 4.0 electric compressor. The artical reads that this compressor is capable of 150 psi and it's 3/4 hp motor draws 40 amps, 30 amps at 35 psi and has a 100% duty cycle.
Just by reading the mag this thing sounds pretty good, they don't list a price so I figure it has to a good chunk of change. I was woundering if any one has or heard of this unit.
