Thumbs up Subaru boost gauge...nice!

Obviously, a gauge is simply a measuring instrument, but in terms of sensitivity, feel, look and (important) placement, it's a really nice piece. I'm quite impressed, and with its location right by the tach, it's in easy view, as opposed to the gauge pack, which requires that you focus on two places at once, so to speak.

Oh...I know...other gauges are cheaper, yada, yada. Sorry, I support the home team whenever possible. I love this thing!

Oh...anyone know what pressures the numbers correspond to?

Default some help

.1 Mpa = 14.7 psi i think. from there you can do some math to figure out the rest

i have the factory gauge pack, and i love it. i have a big audio system so the volt meter is a plus to me.

I have factory guage pod too, and i like it and all but..
ITs too expensive i think..
The lamco guages are way too SMALL!
the boost guage is the worst lit of all mine and i've seen a few other pods and its the same on all of them. Anyway, i'm going to have to buy some other guages

.1MPA on factory guage converts to 14.504psi
.11MPA = 15.95psi
.12MPA = 17.4psi

.2MPA = 29psi! you get the idea

I took the little green condom off of the light bulb because it was too dim at night. Now it's a lot easier to see at night.

Mine seems plenty bright. No bulb "condom" on it from what I can tell.

My guage pack is only poorly lighted in the turbo guage, why? because the other guages only need to be lighted in the top half of the guage, while the turbo boost guage needs to be lighted all the way around the the same small bulb as the others, so it has a more dificult time. If the guage was a bit bigger i might be able to read it accuratly at night, but i can hardly make it out sometimes if i give a quick glance. Maybe my bulbs have a green "condom" on them too as previously suggested by wrxwes?

i think they are basically the same thing, made by Lamco right? I havn't had a chance to check my guage yet to see if that covering is on it.

I recently aquired a OEM coloumn mounted boost gauge.
So they are supposed to be poorly lit on the lower half as per the other OEM optional gauges?

Post True Boost

Hey guys, I am developing an overlay for the stock boost gauge which converts it into PSI accurately. I am at the R&D stage of the final prototype now. Would this be a product you would be interested in?

My stock oil temp gague stopped working and I had it replaced... found out that the filiment bulbs that light them create too much heat. I replaced them with LED's and they are now cool to the touch and look great.
