    Gauge choice help

    Hey hey hey,

    So I have two old boost and oil pressure "Faze" gagues on my 04 WRX. The original owner installed these. The lights kept flcikering in and out and the oil pressure gauge never even worked. I finally decided to swap them out. Figuring the gagues themselves have just gone bad, I bought the same ones brand new. While trying to assemble the oil gauge, I realized that this particular one isn't even compatible with my car. Probably explains why the gauge never worked to begin with. Soooo I am now in the process of returning these gagues. Could someone please suggest some gagues that are compatible with my car? The easier the assembly the better. Thanks!

    Any gauge is really compatible...you just have to wire it correctly.

    Stay away from Glow Shift gauges...

    Budget? There are tons of stuff out there. Defi, Prosport, Maddad, Blitz, Greddy, Autometer, AEM, etc etc etc...

    Defis are generally regarded as the best quality...but they are pricey.

    Yeah I'm telling ya, there was no way that oil pressure gauge was going to work. That sensor piece would have never fit thats why I was so confused on which ones would work.

    Found some Maddad gauges I'll probably go with. Appreciate the help man.

    O and btw if any else sees this, I found on another forum some coupon codes for Maddad gauges.

    "2gauges" code will get you 10% off when you buy two gauges. They're kinda pricey so It turns out to be like 30 bucks.
    Think there is a "3gauges" code too. Haven't tried that one yet.

    ^^^Good choice...

    I need a boost gauge and have been thinking of going with Maddad after a lot of research. They are quality and that site is a great business with good customer service, so I'm always willing to reward a good company with my business.

    Their prices are decent though, especially when compared to Defis and such...
