Default gauges

Yep-

www.summitracing.com for autometer

Omori has a special right now on gauges for a bit more but they're making special colored needles and everything for the new WRX to match OEM gauges! I want those but need a few more bucks. Check it out....

www.omorimeter.com

Look under specials.

What exactly do I need to purchase. I want to get a boost guage that is mechanical. I want an oil pressure guage that is electrical and a voltmeter.


DO I need to purchase tubing or wire do get this all done. Let me know what extra thngs I have to purchase with my guages. And what guages do you guys like best? Is Autometer my best bet?

imho....

I tried autometer but the illumination doesn't match the stock dash very well (dim). I am waiting for replacement VDO Vision Series from Summit. I think VDO makes a good product, good pricing, US made (Virginia)
on the vision series the numerals are lit from behind just like the dash, and you can change the colors with little red or green boots they supply

jasno-

if you buy the autometer stuff, they usually come with the tubing and wiring necessary for installation. You just might need to come up with your own wire for the illumination bulbs...

Talking autometer gauges

some people like it some don't...try www.nopi.com i use them all the time, you can even go to there on-line shop and see a picture of most items, just go to the universal and choose the gauges it will ask you what you want to see and look at...its simple...hope this helps

i have autometer ultralights. right now they're half-installed - in the car and illumination wiring is hooked up. i think they look great and light up fine. they do have all the necessary wiring for that part (illumination)... well, i guess you do need to extend it to splice in w/your dash lights. they come with a red and green cap for the bulbs. the green lights up looking real nice on the silver faces; i think it matches the green dash lights fine. i did notice the boost gauge lights up slightly dimmer then the other two. just like i've read the factory subaru one to do! interesting... must really have something to do with the boost gauge internals being different. it's not that much difference though, at least on my autometers. not enough to make me care.

I got the gauges from Summit...not in their printed catalog, but off their online site...just put "VDO" into their search engine
(which is a generally crappy search engine for some reason)
and it wil show the VDO options

Summit is great! I would go with the VDO instead of the autometer. The price is pretty close but the quality is much better. They more closely match the stock lighting also.

I can't imagine a production vehicle would see above 100psi, so I'd go with the 0-100# gauge.

You could ask the service guys at the dealership what kind of pressure a healthy engine sees at high RPMs when it's still cold - they probably have some guidelines in their tech manuals.
