    Seems like Autometer is the the way to go. Many people use that and few AEM, gauges can be a bit pricey. not sure on price for installation, but im sure if you get in good with someone here to help you out.

    If you're stock, I'd suggest the OEM gauge. The installation isn't too difficult - I'm sure there's a DIY writeup either on here/Nasioc

    Ya, i would go with the OEM if your stock. The gauge is going to be about 200. You can order it on Fastwrx.com or Subaruwrxparts.com. I have the OEM gauge myself and it looks pretty dam good. To install.......well it shouldn't be to hard...

    OEM - reads in bars

    Greddy - very good, very pricey
    Defi - very good, very pricey
    Apexi - very good, very pricey
    Autometer (LED backlighting) - very good, reasonably priced
    Autometer (bulb backlighting) -crap - cheap price
    Prosport - decent gauge, good price
    Glowshift - Crap, cheap price

    I have a Defi blue racer boost gauge that I got for under $200 and it works great.

    Maddad Clarity gauges are also very good, and reasonably priced. OEM just isn't worth it because its expensive, on the smaller side, even smaller than standard 52mm I think, and like they said, reads in Bars. Find one that reads in PSIs and mmHG for vacuum.

    I also recommend getting an electrical boost gauge, that way you don't have to worry about running plastic tubing and stuff inside the cabin, only wires for the sender unit. Its not really a problem, but it can be annoying. Supposedly the electrical is "more precise" in measurements, but this point can be argued both ways, and I'm yet to see evidence either direction.

    I have Prosports and I dig them. They match dash lighting pretty well if you have an STI or WRX. I want something a little better, so I will probably look into the Maddad Clarity because they match even better than Prosports.

    I like my stock gauge personally. It reads in bars, but it seems to be pretty dang precise. I've had an autometer boost gauge in a dsm hated it. they're cheap cheap light shows and nothing more. That's especially true when you get into a/f ratio gauges
