There over 52mm if using gauge holder of any type. The pressure sensors are big and bulky. The water one goes in a sensor holder so not to bad. The boost one has to be T pieced into a threaded t piece. Set up on them is a little crazy. Ue boost one you have to turn alarm off low boost or it goes off soon as it vacumes. So guess it's made for pure boost line on different vehicles. Just found them fiddley for few reasons. 

All this said a nice gauge once set up. Just slightly over complicated for most people's needs. Think I have photos if you need for how I taped into achive readings

This is a general link only 
Not exact one I wanted as it has digi and graph read out but you get the idea and they fit nearly straight into dash where hazard sw etc is if you have a blank or space for it

Stu don't buy one in link it's battery I think mate ? Be carefull you need 12v one or a convertor as a lot are 5v or similar for pc. You need to extend the sensor wire. But mine is near inlet plenum. People talk about if the end snaps it will go into intake. Mines been in 3 year it's not moved

Slight file to dash next to hazard switch and tiny bit black silicone is how I done mine. There are a few availible in 12 v mate a battery voltage one etc. Rev counter one.  a clock so few options for people.

that pc one on red & black will be 5v, would be easy use a cig socket usb charger & take board out to make a 5v supply.
I had twin spa gauges in my evo, look nice & seemed good idea on paper but they shite to visually glance at, I always stick to stepper motor analogue now . Can work better with some parameters but for example digital is awful for boost gauge, something to consider & personal preference to some extent.

^ yeh would save mucking about, only thought of it as other half has a shop selling mobile accessories so I got loads of car usb chargers about & have stripped them before to make inbuilt dash usb port & rear passenger ones.
What the response time like on those cheap thermal sensors ?
