    Yes. You can use the same factory pod if you get an Omori. They offer a 45mm with a yellow needle, green backlight, blackface, and white numbers. The stock pod is 42mm, but it fits.

    Go to this post: Factory Turbo Gauge or Aftermarket And scroll to the bottom. I had the same quesiton. Of course, the '04's have a red needle now so I'm waiting till I can find an Omori like that. I'm anal about it looking stock. Hence my other post: 2004 Turbo Gauge Swap


    PS. Forgot to mention, at the bottom at that post I said to go to, there is a PDF you can down load that has step-by-step instructions (with pictures!) on how to do the swap.
