    Deal on gauge pod and gauges. Worth it?

    02-07 Subaru Impreza WRX & STI Custom Gauge Package

    What do the soobie experts here think of that set up? As for gauges I would go Tinted, 60 PSI Boost, Oil pressure, and it's a toss up between Exhaust temp and Air fuel.

    Also how difficult would the install on this column with those gauges be?

    Thanks much-Tard

    Save your and maybe your motor, and don't get them. I would look into something better, Stri, AEM or Defi if you have real deep pockets. These will cost more but work much better.
    As for what gauges to get, we will need your mods. I run the AEM wideband UEGO and the TRU-BOOST. I would like to add the oil pressure and temp and water temp. If your are running a Air/Fuel you don't need EGT, if the A/F is right than the EGT will be right. The A/F gauge is only worth getting if it runs a wide band O2, if not get the EGT.
    Why do you need a 60 psi boost gauge?

    I don't need a 60 psi boost gauge, Just kind of want it lol. I am running a 2002 WRX with a UTEC, Short RAM Intake, FMIC, Cat back, with up and down pipes.

    I would like to go with a triple gauge pod where the clock should be. Do you know of any in expensive carbon fiber pods? I have the carbon fiber interior around my clock and AC Controls, and it would nice to have a carbon fiber pod to match it.

    All this in mind what three gauges would you recommend?

    -Thanks much, Tard.

    I would check this out: IAG Performance: Subaru Clock Pod Gauge Bundle (3) STRI DSD Gauges, (1) ATI Clock Pod, Gauge Bundle, STRIATI003

    Oil pressure, boost and EGT with an ATI pod. The ATI pods fit very well and are a very close match in color. You can add the CF insert to match the rest of the car. The Stri gauges work well and look good. The only down side is thay don't have green backlight to match the WRX. I installed a set of the smoked/ white in a buddy's cars. They seem to be spot on also.

    Thanks dude, looks really nice. Now I'm a decently tech savy guy, how difficult would it be to install those gauges and get em wired up?

    Boost gauge will be the easiest. The EGT will need to drill and tap the exhaust manifold, the oil pressure comes with a galley plug, we use a oil filter adapter. This make the install much easier. All the wiring needed can be taped at the clock plug.

    Sure, I will help with the install. There will be no need to pay me, maybe lunch or something.
