I bought my impreza WRX 2005 2 mounths ago and i want to change out the clock in the dashboard for the tripple mount gauge. but i have trouble finding the right one.
Can anybody help me on this manner
No matter what, figure on about $100 to $140 for the meter hood, wiring and running tubing to it is easy as a piece of cake.
Oh, eBay, what are you thinking.
I bought what I thought was a Defi meter pod from a guy in Japan, and when it got here, I was a little bit baffled as to what I was supposed to do to get it to stay on the dash. It had no hardware, nothing. It is a nicely made bit, fiberglass, has a maker's label on it with the date of manufacture, and their name, and an inspection/quality control number.
Needless to say, it is not in my nature to try to force anything into a car, especially parts (j/k).
I recieved a replacement yesterday, purchased separately from ATI. It definitely solved a lot of problems, the least of which was fitment, the greatest being finish.
I got the little snap in plate ATI offers, painted that G1-Silver Metallic (Subaru matched spray, same as the car), and also added some powdercoated blue Aluminum bezel rings from Clearlake Powerboats. They are WICKED heavy metal rings, but are very subdued, and blend into the interior as if they are part of the gauges. At $10 per gauge, they are a little pricey, and I bought 7, thinking I would use them for all of the gauges, but the three on the dash is enough. My girlfriend wants the rest as bracelets...
I painted the hood lining section of the ATI pod flat black, and left the hood it's original color.
I was very pleased to see, feel, and hear the whole thing snap into place, leaving no seams or ugly gaps, and the color match is dead on.
I also figured out the correct way to run the wire to the clock, it is no longer a hot-spot.
I wouldn't want to cover the tac. I guess I just am not good enough at stick yet, lol.

I am in for a slew of them for my Chrylser... unfortunately I am up to 7 gauges in the WRX and I can't imagine having more, unless someone starts making LHD pillars so my copilot can have a compass/temp/clock, an A/F wideband, and an EGT. Time attack is picked on, but the cars are seriously tuned. Those pods are hot, man, if you tell where they come from, there's gonna be a lot of sales. Unique and beautiful IMO.
but I do agree...those pods are definitely classy and different looking. I like them

i just mounted three prosport gauges... anyone know how to switch the back light from white to green? ive tried different wiring options but for some reason they won't turn green...
just gotta follow the wiring diagram. I installed my constant power into my clock and to turn them green at night i tapped into my fog light switch. Dont remember the right color of the wires tho.

I put my prosport boost gauge in a few months ago and thought i would always want it green so i wired it that way. tryed to re-wire it so that it would switch and no luck. it will only be green! not even white all the time, any thoughts?
Like i said you gotta have somethin wired wrong. Double check the colors of your wires and the wiring diagram. Only help i can give you is that if you have it to turn colors when your lights are on you need to turn your lights off everytime you turn the car off!!!
I didnt do that and my gauges were always white but when you turn the lights off and turn your car off and turn it back on and the lights back on they turn green.
So thats the only advise i can give ya.
Where did u run your wires to? just curious.
