LIVONIA, Mich. (February 26, 2008) - True performance drivers want to know exactly what is going on with their vehicle at all times, but much of this detailed information is typically only available through supplemental gauges. But at a minimum, adding an accessory gauge increases clutter and decreases visibility around the dashboard, and typically requires some form of cutting or drilling into your valuable vehicle.
The new ROUSH® Vent Gauge Pod is cleverly designed to integrate in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) vent of any 2005-2008 Ford Mustang (including the Shelby GT500) or 2004-2008 Ford F-150 truck. Installation is simple - just remove the HVAC air louvers by gently pulling outwards to remove. The ROUSH Vent Gauge Pod then replaces these louvers with no cutting, drilling, or trimming required. Installation time is just minutes.
Those concerned that the ROUSH Vent Gauge Pod will obstruct the air through the system can rest assured that there is no significant loss of air flow for the cooling and heating functions of either the Mustang or F-150.
The ROUSH Vent Pod Gauge (part number 403840) carries a suggested retail price of $29.99 and will fit any standard 2-1/16 inch gauge (not included). The unit is low profile and designed to match the interior of the vehicle.
"This is such a simple idea and gives a clean and professional looking installation, and I am really proud to say that the ROUSH Vent Pod Gauge was dreamed up and created by one of our engineers during his free time," said Jack Roush. "I think this is a perfect example of how our employees are thinking about innovative ways to continue improving the driving experience virtually 24 hours a day."
