    I like my manual pretty well for as little as it was. The needle is actually red also. (or white, or green if you wish)


    They are about as accurate or better than most on the market. (from what Ive gathered on NASIOC) A great value.


    yeah I know... dust everywhere.

    I just ordered prosport Boost and Oil Pressure...hopefully they are awesome. I'll let you guys know how they turn out and I'll post pics. I got them cause I liked the price and I wanted something that would match the STi gauge cluster colors. These supposedly do the little initialization dance like STI gauges as well...hope they are worth it...

    I've ordered my boost gauge. I'll let you guys know. It's an electrical one and it'll be able to be quick disconnected.

    Here is my electronic boost and oil pressure gauges in a cheap ass gauge pod off ebay (worst $16 I ever spent).


    The gauges are awesome. Easy to wire and hook up, but the instructions were kinda bad. They look great and perform great as well! No complaints!

    If you do an oil pressure gauge...get the sandwich adaptor for the oil filter...makes life EASY.

    Yea... I just have the one gauge for boost. I got the electric one for quick disconnect so when I get pulled over I can hide it. In cali if you have gauges that's a probable cause to search and find all the illegal **** under my hood. Loud exhaust too, which is why I'm going w/a quiet stock sounding 3".

    That looks really good dude...

    I like the visors actually. I've never seen anyone else add them to the Pillar pod, so I said screw it and went for it. I don't mind the seamed look as it gives a "mechanical" feel to them. But addressing the impedance of view is definitely necessary.

    One thing I do not recommend is the "GloShift Gauges Pillar pod" from ebay (same name of the seller). It is a cheap piece of plastic that doesn't fit right and cracked when I drilled it. The Prosport gauges didn't even fit all that well either. The Oil pressure one is sticking out a lot further than the boost gauge does (which is another reason I added the visors. I'm going to replace it with an Autometer whenever I feel like dropping the $60.

    yea the visor did imped the viewing with a dash pod, but the main reason I did it was with them seperate if seemed unfinished and not as clean as it could be

    don't know could be just me, I also love doing little projects like these but I like your A-pillar a lot

    Thanks man...appreciate it. Its not near as clean as yours and what I'd like to have it be...but thats what the new cluster will be. I wanna retain the dual pod because I think three on the A-pillar is too clustered. I may do the dual bezel gauge thing that goes around the steering column cause I still want a Wide Band A/F and a EGT gauge...

    I think the center pod looks good, but I like my clock there too, haha.

    Hey,
    I justed wanted to post some pics of my all electric Prosport gauges setup. I really like these gauges and I think they have a very factory-like look in my 04 WRX, they honestly look even better in person. I have them set so they are white during the day and green when I put my lights on. The people at Prosport are wonderful to deal with and they sell a great, inexpensive product. When I first installed them I thought they were a bit bright but I think I just wasn't used to having gauges where the dim factory clock was. I recommend these gauges to anyone who want a great value gauge that has factory looks. I opted to go all electric for a few reasons, A.) They sweep on start B.) They are easy to install C.) NO hazardous materials in the cab D.) I've been told electric gauges are more accurate and respond faster. If you have any questions about my setup please feel free to ask.

    -Jeff

    ^^Nice install. They look really good.


    I love how they are every bit as good as Defi's but cost about %75 less...they do the sweep, match the interior very well, and are blacked out when off...Thats what I really like when it comes to matching an STI gauge cluster...

    Subaru are morons...why the hell would they make everything orange in an STI, but make the radio green??? Thats cheap...
