Simple Green works good but I use cheap tire foam then wipe it off with a small towel.The silicone oil in it keeps rubber from being dry and wiping it takes the "greasy" shine but leaves everything dark.

Finally got the IPD Vacuum Boost Gauge installed on my C30. It wasn’t too difficult but it did take

Nicely done! Mechanical boost gauges are fairly easy to install, hardest part is always finding ways to route the line and mount the gauge in a way that looks clean, cohesive and functional. Any plans to fan a surround plate/panel on the gauge in that opening?

[]Dustin Wright

Thanks Robert! You got that right regarding the hardest part of a gauge install. Thankfully the P1 Volvo’s have a convinient rubber gommet where the wire harness comes into the cabin from the firewall. At this time I don’t have any plans to fabricate a panel to place around the gauge. To me, this set up looks clean enough and I like that the air still comes out around the gauge, so that the vent is still functional.

[]Robert Sixto

hey, thats a good point, I hadn't considered the airflow still working. I do love that gauge face, font looks like it's just OE Volvo.

[]Dustin Wright

Thank you, sir! That’s precisely why I got it. The gauge is made exclusively for IPD, a Volvo aftermarket specialty shop.

[]Robert Sixto

I don't know too much about Volvo's, but I could tell it might be something like that. That kind of thing is my favorite when it comes to mods, very harmonious with the whole package! 👌

[]Dustin Wright

Thank you, thank you!
