RSpeed Gauge Box

R SPEED / Stainless Radio Gauge Surround w/ Air Fuel Ratio Meter

[9/27/2006] Reviewed by: Sal Briguglio

Applicable to: '90 - '97 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

Stainless Steel radio surround for a 1 DIN aftermarket radio and two 2-inch gauges with space for R-speed's Digital Lean/ Rich Meter.

Overall very cool, great look. Would I buy again... in a Second... I installed this on a 1993. However a couple things to mention: 1. There were no directions with the air fuel meter for installation into the stainless steel structure. You must remove the plastic housing and once you do this there is a sticker inside saying you have voided the warranty for the air fuel meter. This is not a big deal as long as the meter works. 2. I did have to file two of the tabs to be able to put the plastic dash piece back on over the stainless housing. Not a big deal but something to be aware of... and was not mentioned in any of the directions. it may fit better for a 1994 and up... 3. Gauge openings: I installed 2 1/8 gauges and the openings did require a little more filing... I was prepared for this based on reading the website before purchasing. Overall once the unit was in the A/F meter worked great, and it looks cool.. I have a Sony Explode Stereo where the face plate rotates out and it fit nicely and doesn't bind.

This piece is beautiful. Really impressed at the finish and quality. Very nice. I was It was so beautiful in fact that I had to get a better radio to show it off. Reason i bought this setup is to it get those gauges off of the A-Pillar. I'm especially fond of the tight clearance around the normal universal sized radio. I didnąt need to use the crappy plastic bezel that comes with all aftermarket radios or some chintzy plastic kit that you have to hack away at. I’m quite taken with the beauty and simplicity of R-Speeds LED A/F meter too but that's a different review. Really beautiful all together. Looks pretty sweet with the r-speed A/F gauge as well which gave me room for the oh so useful clock for those analog 0-60 times. The setup looks like something Mazda should have designed from the start. What a great design! Very happy with this purchase! Two thumbs up!

The radio bolts into the product with the gauges intact so you can wire everything to the harness before getting in the car. Then the whole thing bolts firmly in place so there is no futzing around with any alignment and removal when working on the dash is beautifuly simple.
