    I've got Boost, Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, will add Wide band O2, and Pyrometer, once the new turbo goes in.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    I have the Oil pres. in case a hose gives. I'd be nice to know that I don't have pressure/oil 10 minutes before the low oil light comes on, which will be too late as you're pulling over calling a tow truck. I'd ditch the oil temp though if they still made my gauges (Blitz BL). I was recently educated on how you can tell when you're oil is hot by looking at Oil pres. while idling.

    I'd go A/F gauge. I'm not sure that Defi offers one of those, but yes you need the "box" for the Defi gauges.

    Think I will go defi after reading about it more. the box logs the info for 3 min after it reads it. So I like that idea.

    How difficult is it to install the oil pressure gauge? I have a 05 wrx, is there a factory connector I can connect it to (since Subaru sells it as a part of the Gauge package) or do I have to install it from scratch. Thanks
