    You'll already have spent ~$700 on gauges if you purchased new; those would suit you until you get the rest of your parts and can afford more gauges.

    thats true and i can always get the gauge cluster for the dash and add 3 more down the line


    so next question ...
    what brand of gauges does everyone suggest ?? I like the all digital look but I always could use some advice

    There are other gauge options available, but have a tendency to be inaccurate or have to be replaced under warranty. While you save money buying these gauges originally, the uninstall/reinstall for warranty work gets old quick, and an inaccurate gauge is worse than no gauge at all.

    haha thats classic


    so the car has to get inspected .. and I have monitors Cat, o2 and o2 heater that havent set yet I have driven nearly 300 miles without codes

    leading me to believe that this ecu was tuned? ...

    I also read that I have to hit about 350 miles for them to set ...
    any thoughts guys??

    someone told me that if it doesn't set by then the best thing would be

    "Tactrix + RomRaider + Clicking the box that says "force readiness monitors to set" "

    My old Blitz ID boost gauge match the WRX's green cluster gauges pretty well. Your reason is the same reason that I didn't also add Autometers.
