Anybody know where I can get something like this - gauge pod?

Bust the window of any car that looks like this and you'll probably find one to grab.
That’s helpful, headed out with my hammer now...

All joking aside, I want to add a boost, EGT, and a temperature gauge that actually works. I know I have seen others here with three hole gauge pods mounted there.

K-Mart! Great! Now I need a time machine and a hammer. That “Blue” light special was awesome! As a very young boy I remember seeing one of the very first Dodge K-Cars there (such genius collaborative marketing) on display in the store and being puzzled by the engine sitting sideways. Front wheel drive? 🤔

The Mud one looks like a good option.

No permanent damage to visible areas and covers that whole recessed area on the dash.

This looks like an unobtrusive spot for your ricer gauges.
ha, yea. If the truck was OBDII I would have just gotten a scangauge or whatever. I hate when dash colors are mismatched so that's why I went with the fast and furious glow shift ones.

You might want to take a look at the edge insight system, despite you not having OBD11 there are options to take external power.
Its not cheap but is completely customizable in terms of what is displayed and it has extension interfaces for any generic sensor you wish to fit.
EGT etc. are available as stock sensors. Takes up less dash space too.
Just fitted one to my F250 diesel farm truck, to monitor EGT and fuel/oil pressure.
One of these days I will pull the Ultra-gauge from the D2 and maybe replace with another so I can get real rather than fake oil pressure as well as the OBD readings.
