The gauges were a very easy install once I got all the parts and tools lined up. Lots of props to Austin for helping me tap the exhaust manifold for the EGT bung and also for turning me onto the GReddy line. They are a great compliment for the existing instrumentation.
The gauge mask kit is from Derres Catalano and all gauges were purchased from Dan at Vivid.

Glad you guys like them. Now I have to install my struts. Who wants to help? Actually, I think all I need are the torque specs for the strut/spindle junction. Austin, you have shop manuals dont you? Do you know the torques?

I don't have shop manuals... but based on the size of the bolts, I torque mine to 90 ft/lbs.

Wow, my rear camber bolts won't like that, I'll stick to 77 ft lbs for them. I guess the lower bolt can go that high, it looks beefier. I found the top center bolt torque spec: 41 ft lbs thanks to Mike at Smart Service. I'll probably hit him up tomorrow for the rest of the specs.

When you were installing the boost gauge, did you find that Greddy's supplied "T" was a little on the small side for the WRX's piping?
I put mine in last night and smooshed some zipties around the tubing, but I'm probably going to try some tiny hose clamps as soon as I can get to the store.

Really nice looking job. Derres's mask looks really nice and is making me think twice of doing my own faceplate. Are those the 52MM Greddy Electronic gauges from Vivid? Also, do you have any tips on drilling the EGT bung? Did you take off the manifold or just hope for the best with any potential metal bits. I'm lazy and want the easy way out.

I did in fact find the t a little small, when I test drove it for the first time, I had a pretty good boost leak going on. Nothing a little hose clamp couldn't fix.

The gauges are all from Vivid, call Dan for the hookup, I got mine overnight. As far as drilling the header, take your time, double check and double check your proposed position again. Use lots of cutting oil or pack your drill bit with grease to catch the metal bits and DO NOT over bore the hole. Make sure you go about a drill bit size smaller than they recommend for starters, it's easier to remove material than to add. When you are tapping, make sure you have the right tap 1/8-28 BSPT and NOT npt with the GReddy gauge. Go slow and use lots of cutting oil or you'll break your tap. Austin helped me take off and drill the header, he also took the liberty of cutting the heat shield away from my O2 sensor for when I'm ready to replace the uppipe. I'd recommend taking the header off, it's not too difficult if you lube the fasteners with WD40. If you want to do things right the first time, there is no "easy way out". I think it would be more difficult to drill and tap with the car running. This type of install is something you really dont want to halfass, if you're really that lazy, have someone else do it for you. It's worth getting it done right.

These are NICE gauges...I have the boost and EGT installed currently. The backlighting really matches the stock gauges nicely as well as the black faced gauges. Get Derres mask! Good quality and it looks nice too boot.

The boost gauge install is a no brainer...the EGT isn't that bad once you get past the fact you are taking a part off your engine and putting a hole in it
I installed my EGT probe in the driver's side exhaust manifold. 15-20 minutes to take off, another 30 minutest to tap (being careful!), and 15 minutes to put back on the car. Oh and 5 minutes using a hole saw to cut a hole for the probe to stick through the heat shield.

I have to stop myself from watching the gauges while driving....

those look great! one quick question: Those look like 52mm gauges in a factory housing, am I wrong? I was thinking about going for 60mm w the defi pod, but I may reconsider.

Just ordered mine on Thursday. Can't wait to get this project under way. I'm doing Greddy as well (Boost/EGT.) And Autometer "Z series" AF in the middle. Won't look quite as nice as SuperMarcus's full Greddy setup, but will provide great functionality.

Give Derres a shout on the gauge mask. Looks like the only game in town for a quality piece of hardware!

HTH - Jim

BTW - SuperMarcus, your setup is to die for!!!

Thanks for the compliment, post some pics when you're done. For those interested, my FULL setup: Gauges, mask, and pod ran ~600 dollars. And that was with the gauges at full retail price. With all the sales going on I'm sure you could score something comparable for under 500 bucks.
