This is a discussion on Boost Guage within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; I believe 2-1/16" gauges are more popular but it could be just a personal preference. I like them myself ...........

    I think that the 2-1/16" are more popular but sometimes you can cut out a little so that it will fit a 60mm

    Do you have any pics?? I want to get a setup like that and i am wondering how the fitment is. Particularly where the dash and the A-Pillar meet.

    Careful, that's a full 8mm (5/16") in diameter you're clearing out. Make sure there's that much room, and allowance for a clamp!

    (Just looked at your profile: You're not quite 16, and hopin' for a WRX! Be real careful with that as a first car!)

    I don't have any picture. It fits really good. Quality is A+. The fitment is some what based on how careful you are with drilling the holes in your a-pillar...if the hole is off, then the screws will pull the pod toward the hole. My advise:
    1) place a piece of masking tape near the area that you'll be drilling, both locations.
    2) install the a-pillar gauge unit into place.
    3) use the screw and insert it into the holes. Make sure it goes in straight, when it hit the tape, the screw will make a mark.
    4) remove the a-pillar guage unit
    5) use the mark to drill the hole.
    6) attached unit to a-pillar and finish off with gauge installations.

    Honestly, the factory turbo boost gauge looks pretty cheezy.... does anyone else think the same way?

    yes. that this is big as a quarter. I almost traded my wing in for the gauge package. I'm glad that I didn't.

    I just finished my custom 52mm column mount for my boost. I'll try to take some pics and post this weekend. I'll also try to post my a-pillar.

    I personally still like the Autometer boost gauge. Pretty straight forward design, easy to read and last a long time. I'm open to any other suggestion though, wish I could compare them side by side..

    Does anyone have the photos on boost gauges?

    I like the Blitz boost gauges. Especially the ones with blacklights. I forgot exactly what they are called but they are pretty easy to find. The only thing i dont like about them is that they only come in 60mm size

    Does anyone have trouble with their autometer gauges. I have heard from some people that they have trouble with theirs, but have heard that they are great from others. BTW i was looking at the Autometer "ultra-light" gauges. What would you guys recomend as 3 good gauges to have if im not gonna be using the car mostly as a street car. I was thinking boost guage (obvious) EGT and im not sure what else. Any suggestions would be great
