    i have a greddy 52mm electronic boost gauge which i am very happy with. its black with green backlighting, and is a very close match to the stock gauges. i think they only make the peak/warning/hold version in 60mm, which will be too big to mount on the steering column, which is where i'd assume you would mount a single gauge. 52mm is about as big as you want to go on the column, thats what i had for a while and it worked great for me.
    if you are looking at getting 2 or 3 gauges, then you can do 60mm on the a pillar or get a pod to replace the clock on the dash.
    omori also makes gauges that are nice, and they match very well also (yellow needle- MY02-03). besides that blitz and defi make great gauges, but they wont match as well.

    btw, good choice on getting an aftermarket gauge instead of the factory option... its more expensive than aftermarket and not nearly as good.

    I'm interested in dual gauge pod to put my boost and fuel pressure gauges. Would anyone happen to know what's available? I have the 2-1/16" autometer gauges already.

    Thanks for the help.........

    Some good WRX websites that i like are fastwrx.com and subarustore.com. I think fastwrx.com is a little better though. Bigger selection

    Me? No, the gauge came from Gruppe-S, and the pod from Subiegal.com

    Sure thing. I got the 3 gauge pods and it works. People keep telling me that it looks stock. You just pull out your stock a-pillar cover and replace it with the new gauge holder.
