    SPT boost gauge (coming feb 09)

    hey guys, i just saw the new spt boost gauge coming out in feb. it looks pretty nice compared to the current oem one u get at teh dealership. new one has nice red led and i believe its on the new spt catalog. it says this one is for 08-09 wrx/sti. now does that mean it wont fit work on my 06 wrx? i think im asking a stupid question, arent I?

    i wish i could change my current one to this one.

    trust me id too if i wasnt stuck with the current one. this spt gauge looks really nice and the reading is in psi. for you guys with 08 and onwards, this will match up nicely with ur clusters.

    does anyone know how much the dealer will charge for installing the new turbo gauge?

    i have an '08 wrx and i love the red backlight and like even more having a turbo gauge on any car with a turbo!

    this should be out pretty soon

    I'd guess roughly an hour of labor at the going shop rate, it's a relatively easy install you might consider doing it yourself
