I don't plan to. Is there a rundown of what guages are displayed on the dash and in the three pods? I have no experience with these apps, but a handful of them out there that will tell you all that you need to know. Would rather look at my phone or through am access port to see if there is anything else I feel I need to log or follow.
Pretty much everything important. Only thing missing is wideband and EGT. Boost, oil temp and pressure, turbo speed, maybe a couple others that I'm forgetting. Depending on the accuracy of the oil temp, pressure, and boost pressure I wouldn't bother with anything other than a wideband.

Going to swap them with aem wideband and defi exhaust temp and oil pressure
Stick with all AEM or all Defi (I prefer AEM by far, and am swapping all my current Defi gauges out for AEM).

Wonder where folks are gonna end up putting the wideband gauge—glove box like the good old days? Gotta maintain that sleeper status...

If the triple gauge pod is also carryover from the 370Z, yeh they’re all built onto the same PCB underneath the dash, if ya want to replace em they all gotta go (which makes the fact they look separate infuriating 😓)

And the only way to remove without destroying them is to take the whole dash out lol 😅 apparently can’t get them out from underneath

On my girls old 350z it was easier I took them off and the bezels to hydro dip them
In carbon, the new z looks like u need to rip the whole dash

Oh nice, never even considered hydrodipping, howd they turn out?

I believe the hats, bezels, n gauge faces can still be easily removed from the top, it’s the electronics behind them that require the dash to come out if trying to swap in custom gauges.
