    change color of factory boost gauge?

    ive been trying to look for this for a while. if someone could link me to a DIY or explain it a little better. from what i understand you have to pop off the front and use a bulb condom to change the color.

    There's a link on nasioc. If I recall, though, the 06's use an LED to light up the boost gauge.

    That's pretty much it. It took me about 5 minutes, and I did it before installing the gauge.

    how do you pop the front off the gauge? I would still like to replace it with a gauge that matches with the factory STi gauge cluster though. something that blacks out with the ingition off.
