We also have a complete install video of our premium series gauges including the oil filter adaptor plate on our STI on the website. It is located on the amber/white premium page.

I just picked up a 05 WRX and it had a pillar cluster with oil pressure and vacuum/ boost. The oil pressure gauge works well (both light up with my lights); however the vac/ boost gauge needle just sits at 30 inhg. Its a mechanical gauge that runs a line through the firewall to a black box next to the turbo. From that box, the pressure line runs near the wastegate? and is tapped into one of those lines. Been tampering with the connection and have gotten the pointer to move although its all over the place... any ideas on what going on?

btw its an Autometer make ---- Cobalt series

maybe their is a leak in the line. With a mech gauge it should sit at 0 with the car off. Where does it sit?

any reason why you guys did not add the daisy chain feature to your pro sport premium wide band .
I was kind of pissed off that I had to make a custom wiring connection so I can just plug it in to my pro sport premium boost gauge for power .

Yes, because the bosch heated O2 sensor draws so much power that the power running through the gauge is not enough.

Are there any good photos/instructions for installing oil pressure at the alternator. All the links here point to under the intercooler, which I just did, only to have the stupid galley plug strip like crazy. I'm in an 06 WRX wagon. Any help on what the plug looks like and how to get the alternator out of the way for the install would be very helpful.

This post is exactly what I was searching for. I was going with Boost, A/F Ratio, and EGT. Why Oil Pressure instead of A/F ratio? Is that based on the assumption that if your A/F is off, the EGT will show it? Maybe, but probably not off boost, right? For instance, my new (to me) and highly-modified '05 WRX is blowing a little smoke when I take off, and backfiring on shift. I'm chalking that up to an aftermarket BOV (thanks to another helpful post), and thinking of getting a stocker to install. Anyway, would an EGT guage show a low a/f ratio under those conditions? By the time the Oil Pressure drops low enough for you to notice a problem (assuming you are staring at the guage all day), wouldn't it be kinda too late? Just like with the worthless light in the guage cluster that comes on to tell you that you just hosed your engine?? Fool added a STI turbo, STI intercooler, TurboSmart BOV, Downpipe, Exhaust, and a bunch of other stuff, and then tunned it with a COBB unit, but not one freaking guage to monitor it all!? Prolly shoulda let it go, but it seemed like a steal. I'm going shopping...

Da'oh! Gauge, tuned... can't type, or spell, not sure which!

Oh yeah. Another question. Will any A/F gauge work with a wideband sensor? I want the prosport gauge since it seems to match my STI cluster pretty perfectly, but I plan on installing a REAL wideband unit. Will it work?

Ok, I see they sell a wideband gauge too. Missed that at first. I wonder how good the Wideband kit with the Bosch 5-wire sensor is. Seems inexpensive? Aren't wideband sensors ridiculously expensive??
