Smile Where to mount wideband?

I need ideas. I don't want it on the pillar. I'm thinking about the column, but I don't know if the autometer pod will fit well.

I've seen the vent pods, but they are one-offs.

I may end up getting something like this and double-side tape it to the top loft or right of column.

Auto Meter/Black mounting cup for 2 1/16 in. Auto Meter and Autogage gauge (2204) | Gauge Mounting | AutoZone.com

Pics and idea please.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah I would do the steering column one. I have the dash pod with my Boost/Vav and wideband in there. But Im going to buy an oil pressure gauge, keep the boost/vac and oil in the dash pod, and put the wideband in the steering column one.

I like the column mounts. I've seen a couple in person, and they fit pretty good. I mounted mine where my stock head unit was an aftermarket unit to the place where my stock CD player was. I made the pod out of ABS for about $15. I've still got room for two more in the future. With you're car being a double din, that's probably not an option for you unless you swap it out. I think go with the column mount.

I've had this in the car for about 3 months and still haven't hooked it up...

I have a double din though. I think I'll do the AZ one for temp then eventually get the pod. Really right not I need function more than form. I just need the gauge in plain sight. I was even thinking of just zip tying it to the column for a few days.

I've still got weld in the bung, lol.

EDIT: I'm with JoshC. The autometer is the one I'm referring to as far as fitting well. They're about the same cost, why not spend the money on a nice piece the first time?

My rears are already off, but I thought the wideband had to be in front of the cats? I have a full exhaust with L/T's, but I went with a catted H for inspection reasons. If not, then I'll do this tomorrow after work!
