    Omori WRX look all the way. I put it in a gauge pod from SubieGal.

    You can get the gauge from J-Spec Tuning. Best service EVAR!

    You can get the pod from SubieGal or allsubaru.com

    Here's a pic (but not with the Omori gauge):

    Another vote for the Omori WRX look guages.

    I put them in an Autometer Bezel Pod. To anyone else, they look very close to stock.

    I just started a webpage for my WRX mods. I've put up a half-assed tutorial on how to install the Omori electronic boost gauge. Thought you might find it helpful.

    The only thing I'm missing is the most important: a picture of the gauge installed. How lame am I? That pic on the menu is my ghetto install before I got the pod (I couldn't wait). Once I get off my ass and take my digital camera with me, I'll add the pictures there.

    And yes, my engine bay is dirty.

    I have the Defi-Link boost gauge, and i love it... very sharp looking.. bright, easy to read... very nice overall, maybe if it weren't so expensive it'd be even better, but oh well...

    I ordered the mechanical. Looked easier to install and cost less and should be more accurate

    Both are pretty simple instalations. Also the electronic should be more accurate.

    Question

    I'm a bit confused. The picture above shows the boost guage with a silver bezel, like the stock guages. Yet the picture of the omori guages on J-Spec's site doesn't show the guage with a silver bezel. I only ask because I need a boost guage and I want one with the silver bezel.
