    apparently the a-pillars on the wagons are longer. I think i read it on vivid racing.

    speedracer: how long does it take to install? I have the same boost gauge as you and i was wondering where you hooked the wires for the light into?

    There is a small plug behind the stereo that you can tap into so your boost gauge lights will dim with all your other interior lights.

    Yup, the wagon is taller so it has longer a-pillars.

    it took me longer to get the wires down by the pillar to the floor than anything else......i had to splice it with another wire for 12v and ground the 12v i attached it to the ignition system because i have a shift light on there too and i grounded it to a piece of metal underneath the dash........if you get under the dash you see a triangle like shape with a hole but no bolt....get a bolt with a nut and crimp the wire and you're good to go

    FWIW, Speedracer's way gives you light whenever the ignition is on. The way I described only gives you light when your headlights or driving lights are on. Makes your bulb last a little longer. If you are getting an EGT gauge, you'll need a ignition driven power source (like Speedracer's) as well as another source for the light. Plus the wires to the probe.


    My setup:
    Autometer Ultralight boost gauge
    Autometer Ultralight EGT gauge
    Autometer A-pillar gauge pod

    I actually don't. I'm still in the stone ages using my 35mm camera and scanning stuff in, but the pics I took of it didn't turn out. Everyone thinks it's stock because it fits good, the lights are green on the gauges, and I painted the A-pillar to match the other one.

    Speedracer,,what is that yellow plug on your gauge pod???
    and i am in doubt about using A/F or Oil Temp or Oil Pressure gauges??
    The EGT is the only one for sure.
    As i am planning on the 2 gauge pod(does it look better than the 3 gauge pod??)i will use EGT and??
    some people say A/F is more important,,others say oil pressure,,and i was thinking of oil temp too..
    Wich one is the most important one?
    thanks
    Tuca
    PS:wich Gauges match perfectly the dash green lights??

    I believe the yellow plug is the Autometer shift light...

    I've heard the Greddy and Omori gauges have very close illumination. In fact Omori sells "wrx factory-look" gauges with a black background, yellow needle and green illumination...
