    Gauges & stock sensors

    I like the idea of adding a gauge pod but I don't like the idea of installing all kinds of sensors. I understand that the WRX has an EGT sensor in the downpipe and presumably this is used by the ECU. Can I tap into the wiring and add an EGT gauge? What about oil pressure? Oil temperature etc?

    The Stock EGT probe is in the Uppipe before the turbo, and the Rear o2 is after the turbo. Alot of people leave the EGT off completely (I did) and use a resistor to fix your CEL. It all depends on what you figure out after your researching. I would use the EGT gauges probe that comes with your EGT guage, instead of tapping into the stock EGT.

    ILP has the "NO weld" egt kit that uses the factory sensor port and installs in min.

    pretty cool and it keeps the ECU happy
