There was a picture here

Don't know why I imagined that the thing would go screaming around the car cabin.


As far as gauges, I was thinking of doing this...

Defi Gauge Startup and Shut down

Or not

BUMP...Maggie, did you ever get a boost gauge?  I decided I really need one.  All of my previous turbo car had one.  It's like I feel a little disconnected from my WRX without it.  Hopefully I can figure something out soon myself.  I really want to go Stage 2 also.   8)

I saw on http://www.wrxforums.com/index.php a SMY Cluster for sale. The site is formerly known as 3gwrx.com...
Anyway, a boost gauge and an AFR gauge would be good fillers for the two holes.........

Not yet, I'm kind of saving up to do a tune and gauges all at once. But it's weird not having one.

Now that I've gotten an AP I feel the need for a boost gauge ASAP.

Defi Red Racer series.   It's quite a bit more money then prosports, but its worth it.

That would be the one  8)

I think I got mine from Speedelement.com.  Was a little cheaper there.

Edit: at the time it was cheaper, now its more. lol

When I get back from the desert, my girl will be getting quite a few new toys. 8)  I've decided to go with the SMYClusterMaker and Defi CR Boost/Oil Pressure Gauges since I have read on 3gwrx, NASIOC, and many other sites that Defi's are the most accurate.  Plus, I really like the way the Defi's look.  :subaru:

That actually looks pretty slick. Any pics when it was light outside?

Ya. Its really the only option, unless you want to drill into the dash.  I personally hate having to take my eyes off the road to look at a gauge thats mounted on the steering column.  I tried it for a while but ended up not liking it.

That looks pretty great, I gotta say. But I'd have to switch to a head-unit GPS.

Maggie - did you do anything yet?

I'm close to going stage 2 and I'd like to get a boost gauge installed first.  I was just thinking about going with an Autometer mechanical style.  I'll probably put it on the A pillar since that seems like the best location.
