    SPT Boost Gauge

    Don't waste the money on that either. The SPT gauge is known to malfunction frequently: backlight burning out, incorrect boost reading, etc. Not worth the $300+ installed price. You can get a Defi gauge for $175-$200 on the higher side and install it yourself in 30 minutes and it will be MUCH better quality. You can find a much higher quality gauge such as AEM, Innovate, or STRI for under $150 and do it yourself.[/QUOTE]

    Mikie13 was giving me some advice. I appreciate his help! I have to say I like the fact that everything is Subaru installed so it is covered by warranty. . I also am not confident in my install abilities. Has anyone had good experiences with this?

    SPT Boost Gauge

    I guess I am afraid I am going to jack something up... Cutting/drilling into my dash is a little unnerving.

    You don't really have to cut or drill into anything if you don't want to.

    What kind of mount solution did you want? There are tons out there.

    Hey everyone, just a quick question about the electric boost sender. Mine has broken, ebaying one now. Just wondering if the electric boost sender and the boost gauge have to match upo with pressure readings?
    Example, My boost gauge reads PSI, but I found a cheaper boost sender for the same model gauge on ebay with a description reading: 0 - 3bar pressure capabilities.
    bar and psi are just pressure readings, so I'm thinking will it affect the gauges output? I mean, 1bar = 14.5 psi.. so wouldn't that just come up on the gauge?
    Sorry to be a noob.

    That's actually a good question. I never thought about the possibility of a sender having anything to do with the readings. But to be honest with you, to ensure that you have parts that are matching and working correctly, I'd think you should just get one that is made to read in PSI. I'd think only the manufacturer knows your question completely.

    I asked the manufacturer, they keep avoiding the question by referring to reliability issues. They don't give me enough information abouit pressure readings. Thanks anyway, I will just have to pay for the sender... the overpriced sender...
