    Looking for subtle 60mm single gauge pod ideas for my wagon

    Well, after six months, it looks like the Subie Gal gauge pod deal is falling through. I was hoping to install one of these:



    But after receiving the wrong pod six months ago, and Subie Gal not getting any new ones in, I'm ready to go another route.

    So, does anyone have any ideas for something subtle for a single pod for a 60mm boost gauge? I'd consider 52mm, but I want to go with one of the Omori WRX look gauges, and Gruppe-S only has 60mm (and is selling them out so I might be too late! )

    I don't really want to replace the clock with a dash pod. I haven't seen a single A-pillar pod, let alone one long enough for a wagon, And I haven't seen a steering column pod (Ala. OEM) for 60 mm.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Those Blitz BLM gauges are sweet! But those might be too aggressive/not subtle enough for you. Otherwise...Defi gauges! Those are SWEEET!

    I want gauges so bad too...

    J-spectuning seems to have 52mm mechanicals in-stock http://j-spectuning.com/omori_yg.htm

    I bought a 45mm mechanical from J-spectuning the other day to replace the OEM one.

    Thanks Russ,

    I've seen that one advertised for a year or so, but it sounds like they might actually be making them now! There's been a couple of threads here on it, as well. One guy got one and the top edge covers up about 1/2" of the top of the gauges! Didn't look good at all. Someone else has a friend making one similar, but that's fibreglass instead of ABS, fits better, and matches the WRX color. We'll see if it comes to pass...

    Anyway, none of these fit the Omori 60mm gauge, which I'd prefer because of the memory, inches instead of bar, and correct color light and needle that matches the OEM gauges. Maybe I can find a 60mm cup and mount it to the top left defroster vent somehow.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I say gauges are for looks. The more the better.

    Are those your gauges? No gauge pod for the center 3 gauges?

    Here is my single gauge solution - Defi-link EGT.
    02 wagon
    All the mounting hardware comes in the box from Defi
    Gruppe-s seem to have the best prices on Defi.

    I wonder if I could just use double sided tape and secure that to the dash rather than screwing into the A pillar.
    PS that gauge is gorgeous!
