    Does the Subaru turbo boost gauge block view?

    With the boost gauge mounted on the left of the steering column, does it obscure the view of the left dash gauge? '06-'07 model years.

    The only thing that the stock boost gauge really interferes with is the temp reading. If you're dying to know the temp just poke your head to the left a bit.

    Dang. I have to admit I do like glancing down at the outside temp. "It's 98F out there? Feels like 60F in here [A/C blowing like mad]."

    Thanks.

    I guess I would rather have mine mounted on the A-pillar, but then it would be more of a pain in the ass to read. If you lower the steering wheel you can see the temp/gas readings just fine.
