    Well i installed mine last night. It was an easy install and took a whole 10 min to do. (My friend is really good at these things.)

    I will post pics of the int and ext this weekend after i wash it.

    NUSubieTech - Where did you mount your switch? It was kinda big and would like to know where you put yours.

    same here, i think i'll go for the incrased functionality, better looks, and lower price over the blitz (when i can spare $500)

    Hahaha, I sort of fudged the mounting of the switch. I left it just sitting loose behind the kickpanel under the steering wheel. Its sitting so that i can take out the little fuse acess panel and adjust it.

    As for the AVCR, I just got MRT's Training the WRX tuning manual - just to get some suggestions from one of the original WRX tuners, and behold - in the first introduction I read that the AVCR is their choice of electronic boost controllers. Nice!

    PS - I got mine on a group buy for 400. Not a bad deal huh? If you live around NJ, contact me. Ill try to get you one for less than 500.

    Speed safely,

    Joe

    Nice work with the switch installation. I was thinking about that, but i couldnt figure how to get all the wiring in there, even if i drilled a hole... how did you manage that one?

    Im now looking into this company that will allow LED illumination for the needles themselves, which has a really cool effect. Ill let you know how it goes...

    speed safely,

    Green on the mileage - no way. Its also an electroluminecent screen. I think the idea of the kit is to replace the bulbs that light the needles with LEDs. If anything good comes of it - i will of course let you know.

    speed safely,

    Well my friend did the install, and i believe he spliced into the parking lights. Should be a pink wire.
