This is a discussion on 6 hours later (Defi install) within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; whew...this was almost as bad as the uppipe install. I'm sure my lack in automotive electrical know-how did not help ...

    Cool 6 hours later (Defi install)

    whew...this was almost as bad as the uppipe install. I'm sure my lack in automotive electrical know-how did not help but anyway its done and I'm very happy with it all, looks awsome, works great and well worth the money. I cant imagine getting any other gauges after seeing what Defi is all about first hand.
    What I installed:
    -Defi gauge pod 60mm (painted with Dupli-color Vinyl&fabric color flat black)
    - Defi boost gauge (psi)
    - Defi tach
    - Defi EGT gauge (C). (probe not yet installed)
    - Defi indicator light on steering column <linked W/ tach> (uninstalled oem boost gauge)

    If any one has any questions on the install, feel free to ask and if your intrested in a OEM boost gauge for sale, shoot me a PM

    Why doesn't the MC unit light up?

    Looks good however I installed my Defi's last weekend.

    Heh, I knew someone would ask that.. Well, I got the whole set up for tuning purposes and since the defi ecu has recording capability, I will be able to record a run down the 1/4 or on the road and be able to keep my eye on the road/track and replay the run later. I can then observe how much boost my car is running and at what rpm's and I can also more easily monitor my EGT's to see if a lean condition is present somewhere in the powerband (this has yet to be determained cause im not to sure how "fast" the defi egt gauge is at reading EGTs.) then adjust accordingly.

    Also I can then utilize the hella tight indicator light for a shift light

    WRX-games, I'm guessing your talking about the ecu... It does light up, look at the bottom left in the third pic.
