    Would this be something that would/could void my warranty? I was thinking of getting a dual gauge pod setup for the A pillar, not sure what I'd get for a second gauge yet

    The boost gauge should not void the warranty. What year is your car?. I have prosport white lines boost and oil pressure with the SMY Cluster

    a mechanical boost would be cheaper around 50ish the ones with electronic senders are around 95 and up. Unless you have them next to each other you wouldn't notice the difference. The install is easy enough they have walk through posts on the sites just search. The prosport came with two cups so no need to buy one but I ordered mine with the SMY cluster. There is supposed to be someone working on the triple pod that would go in the center area but nothing yet.

    I notice you have the short throw. Did you get the bushings also? How does the shift feel? I felt that the STI was too notchy and not easy to shift. Granted this was on a short-test drive but I hated the shift compared to my Civic Si

    well this is just my opinion, but here is what i did...

    Cheap OBDll bluetooth ebay. $15 Or expensive OBDll bluetooth for $150. (they both comes with wire for your laptop to read Codes
    My asus tablet/android HTC G2. (usually i use g2 for music on my stock head unit) .. i already have asus tablet. I got it for $200 long ago
    Torque App on andriod market. $5
    Hook two together and bam!!!! live data that i can see. (usually, i use my tablet because its much bigger then my phone screen)

    It has oil temp, boost, afr, egt, whatever you want

    I also know its consistent because i use my Cobb AP to compare data. Super Consistent!!!
    All and all i spend was about 20 hamburgers
