    Cobalt Guages?

    Anyone use the Autometer Cobalt series guages? I think the blue would look cool even though it would not match the lighting. Anyone have any pics? Oh yeah, what is better as far as a boost guage? Mechanical or electronic? Does it matter?

    Thanks!!

    I have those gauges. They do look pretty sweet. They look even sweeter now with my STi guage cluster( wish I had Defi now though). I don't have pics anymore. I'd take some but I'm in Iraq.

    I just ordered that same gauge pod. Just out of curiosity, where did you run the vacuum hose and electrical from the top of the dash? I just want to make sure I'm not removing anything I don't need to. ;-) Thanks!

    I didnt actually do the running, I payed a technician friend a lil to do most of it, because I suck with electrical type stuff. All I did was hook up the vacuum to the boost line but he ran it down the corner beside the dash where it meets the a-pillar there is kind of a space to run it and ran it through a tube channel that is right up from the gas pedal. Thats about all I can tell you lol. Hope that helps....
