    New member and WRX owner

    Thought I'd say hi. Just picked up a 2005 black wagon, 5-speed, only options being the auto dimming mirror and cargo mat. Loving it so far. A good friend has an autometer cobalt electric boost gauge he's letting me have for cheap (new), so that'll be mod #1.

    Here's a snapshot:

    Thanks guys!

    So, I have a question: if I plan to stay mildly modified (maybe full turboback and AccessPort), how many gauges do I really need? I'm debating how to mount this boost gauge, and like the idea of the steering column mount or Subiegal's single pod. However, if it's pretty important to add more gauges, like EGT or A/F ratio once I start modding a bit, I'll just bite the bullet and go for some triple-gauge pod setup. Thanks...

    That should be enough. Just EGT and A/F. If you're real cautious you can get oil temp as well. And you already have Boost.

    And welcome.

    Thanks. Now I have to choose between the dash-pod (although I'd hate losing the clean look and the clock) and the 3-gauge a-pillar pod... decisions, decisions.

    I would say that an A/F guage is only really useful if you have a WBO2. This is the only way it will give you an accurate reading.

    You should be fine with boost and EGT. Those are the two most important.
