    Gauge installation

    I am very new to tinkering with cars and I mean very new. I know how to change oil and other fluids. That's basically it. I wanted to know if it's relatively hard to install a boost gauge on a Impreza WRX 2003 MY04. Or if there are any guides on doing this?

    Installing a boost gauge is pretty simple and there are a lot of places you can get tutorials, I'm sure there are some for your specific model. Buy a good quality gauge from a reputable brand. I recommend a mechanical gauge rather than an electric gauge.

    Here's a very basic overview of what you need to do: Boost Gauge Install

    Boost gauge is simple in the GDs.

    There's a grommet up under the pedals on the firewall...easiest place to get wires/boost tube(if mechanical) into the cabin. For all wiring, just use the wires that plug into the clock pod.
