Which vent? I dont see it being too hard to make a panel out of sheet steel or aluminum to replace a vent grille and than mount your gauges within the panel

I would find some way to block the air flow to that vent.Depending on the gauge it might not like the temperature,and might not give true readings.

Shouldn't be too hard.. Id use some expanding foam.. Like for weather sealing doors. you could always remove it either that or some medium density packing foam.
