    Need gauge advice

    I have my UP, DP, and cat back on my car right now, and i have a stage 2 unichip i want to install badly. However, i gotz no gauges . I don't know if i'll need an EGT, because i have a local AWD dyno, which i will take the car to right after plugging in the unichip to check my A/R ratios. Would the stock boost gauge be sufficient? I don't really wanna spend more than about $200 ( id rather spend the extra dough on a bigger turbo and injectors than "cooler" gauges). Anyone know how much i could get an Autometer setup for? I appreciate the help, i need a boost gauge ASAP.

    Check Summit or Jegs online for gauge prices. Autometer would be your best bet price-wise. I got a good boost gauge and cup for $65 from Summit.

    i dont recommend autometer. if you want quality gauges get OMORI, DEFI, BLITZ, GREDDY, HKS, etc.

    I remember seeing some Rally guages a while back for around $75 for the Evo 8, Im sure they make them for the WRX too. they were black and lit up red, not sure of the website though sorry.

    I do recommend autometer.

    There is nothing wrong with them AT ALL they work as well as any "JDM" gauges. Thousands of domestics and race cars use them (and i do) with no flaws whatsover. If you want to save some $ go autometer.

    egauges.com have good prices.


    JDM gauges are way over priced.

    Spending 500$ for gauges...

    Not worth it in my opinion, yes the defi setup is nice.... but not worth it. (IMO)

    I am planning on getting some VDO gauges and will end up costing me around 300-350$ max for oem gauge pod, 3 gauges, and all the wiring and senders, etc.

    Well, i ended up getting 3 Greddy 52mm gauges. EGT, Boost, Oil temp. They're super nice, still waiting to get the EGT and oil temp installed. Should i drill the manifold for the EGT? Or just do the downpipe?

    Most drill the manifold. Cylinder 3 if I recall correctly is what most do.
