It has been well established that the Mini lacks vital instrumentation and this kit is one of the best values on the market to solve this problem. These kits available in numerous gauge configurations contain everything you will need to mount the gauges discretely and securely on the steering column of the Mini Cooper. As with all FlexPod products, the installation requires no permanent vehicle modification. The high quality machined aluminum mounting parts and Marshall Instruments gauges look stock once installed. That means you'll never have a reason to remove them... but if you did, all elements can be removed without damage to your Mini.
An oil pressure, water temperture, boost and oil temp gauge can give you a lot of information about the health of your vehicle. By establishing a good baseline knowledge of your Mini's readings while the car is running well, you can be alerted to any issues before they become costly problems. Low oil pressure could be a sign of a leak, worn out oil, a low oil level, high oil temperatures, or a damaged oil pump. By discovering these issues before they lead to complications or engine failure you will be much safer in a Mini that will last longer. This gauge from, Marshall Instruments, runs on a stepper motor and includes a peak recall and warning feature. With this feature, you can set your gauge ring the alarm when your oil pressure has dropped out of your desired range. Using the included Tapless Adapters and other adapters you will be able to install the oil pressure sender in line with the factory sender to ensure good reading and reversible installation.
A boost gauge (for "S" MINIs only) may not be as important as a oil pressure gauge, but it is easy to install and a fun gauge to have in your Supercharged/Turbocharged Mini. The boost gauge is much more active than the pressure gauge which will have a relatively steady reading when all is well with your Mini. In contrast, the boost gauge is giving you the constantly changing PSI output of your turbocharger.
