R-Spec gauges, adapters needed?

Looking to buy a couple of R-Spec poor mans Defi gauges and whilst browsing I found some Mitsi specific adapters and was wondering if I need one for the oil pressure gauge.

This is the oil pressure gauge

here is the adapter

The gauge description says it includes fitting kit so i would assume one is already included?

Also anyone know anywhere else you can buy these?

Adding one to my cart at R-Spec adds 12 quid to the postage which seems a bit extortionate for what is essentially a few ounces of plastic.

Cheers

Yeah think i will call them up tomorrow, oddly I seen R-Spec selling them on Ebay but postage is 2.25 cheaper than if you buy from their website.

Edit
Even weirder, i added 2 gauges and the pillar pod and postage came to nearly 22 quid, 12 quid for the pillar, but 2 gauges on their own postage is 9.75, pillar on its own postage is 6 quid.

So it would be cheaper for me to buy the gauges and the pillar in 2 seperate transactions and have them send in 2 seperate packages.


A phone call is definately the way forward.

Mitsubishi adaptors would not be included in a universal gauge kit. Gauges are not vehicle specific and even a ''rich mans defi'' would not have these included.

Are you in the uk?

If your order value exceeds a certain amount it will automatically offer special delivery for insurance purposes. The little bit of plastic is actually nearly a meter long and made of fiberglass.

If you pm or contact us through the mlr you will get discounted pricing, so no need to go through eBay etc.

if you get the oil pressure and or oil temp you will need to get a sandwich plate to fit the sensors in (iv had to to fit mine).

Do I need an adapter for the boost gauge?

Can you do me a deal on the following?
Item 1 (http://rspec.co.uk/gauge-pods-accessories/mitsubishi-evo-pods/lancer-evo-7-8-9-double-pillar-pod-52mm)
Item 2 (http://rspec.co.uk/performance-gauges/blue-stepper-motor-series/52mm-stepper-motor-super-blue-warning-boost-gauge-bar)
Item 3 (http://rspec.co.uk/performance-gauges/blue-stepper-motor-series/52mm-stepper-motor-super-blue-warning-oil-pressure-gauge)

As already stated the pod is nearly a meter long, fiberglass and is packed into a large box to protect it. Have a look on royal mail website at postage costs for special delivery that goes over 2kg and your questions will be answered.

No adaptor required for a boost gauge, I will pm you to discuss requirements. We always do deals for mlr members.

If not I'll order the gauges Ufrom your Ebay shop and the pillar and adapter from your website, will save me about 8 quid postage that way. Every little helps as they say :)

There are take offs on the filter housing, but these are often siezed on the earlier models
